‘Nonviolent Communication (NVC)’ is a simple, extremely powerful and effective tool for improving our communication skills in all our relationships - at work, with friends, family etc. It helps us to see clearly what blocks our communication from being effective, and teaches us what we can do differently to create communication that works.
NVC helps us to resolve conflicts and misunderstanding in our daily life toward creating a deeper connection, trust and cooperation with the people around us, heal wounds (between us and within ourselves), and be the contribution and leaders we want to be at any given situation.
Some of the topics we will address in this course:
❀ How to give an honest feedback: How to be radically honest without being judgmental or demanding?
❀ How to stand firmly and gracefully for your needs and assertively ask for what you want
❀ How to connect through conflict
❀ How to express and hear ‘NO’
❀ The power of Empathy to dissolve anger, pain, fear and hurt. How to hear the essence of what other people say, no matter how they express it
❀ And more…!
About 'Nonviolent Communication (NVC)':
NVC is widely used all around the globe as a tool for communication, conflict resolution, mediation, coaching and self-development.
NVC is successfully used in organizations, teams, businesses, politics, prisons, schools, families and relationships in millions of every day life situations.
In an interactive and safe learning environment, we will be invited to work on examples from our own life. We will practice “Nonviolent Communication” through demonstrations, role-playing and exercises in order to integrate the NVC values and language more in our own daily lives.
Assistant: We will have an assistant accompanying us during this course. s/he did already the Basic Course, Intermediate Course and Year Course and is engaged in her/his steps toward teaching/sharing NVC.
