The Art of Making Requests
Do you long to live a life aligned with your passions and values?
To deepen your relationships and go for your dreams?
Life is too short not to go for what you really want!
Making requests is an art of living. It is the power that manifests your dreams.
A workshop dedicated to the Art of Making Requests and the challenging communication dynamics around them.
We will explore
❀ How to stand firmly for your Needs and assertively ask for what you really want
❀ How to connect with what is almost hidden, deep inside you
❀ How to express a NO (and stay in connection)
❀ How to hear a NO (and stay alive)
❀ What are the risks and payments of saying a ‘Half Yes’
❀ How to initiate and lead challenging dialogues
❀ How to stand for your need to matter
We will be practicing such skills as
❀ The difference between a Request and a Demand
❀ Principles in making powerful requests that move things forward
❀ The 2 types – Dialogue Requests and Action Requests
❀ Radical Empathy and Honesty
Nonviolent Communication (NVC, PhD Marshall Rosenberg) is a practical communication tool that radically transforms your relationship with yourself and others. NVC cultivates assertive honesty mixed with a deep quality of Empathy. NVC transforms conflicts into love and clarity.
NVC takes you from your meditation cushion into real life – it helps you live your deep values in relationships and millions of day-to-day life situations. NVC deeply transforms your communication with yourself toward a quality of profound compassion.
You will be invited to work on examples from your own life in an interactive and safe learning environment. We will practice Nonviolent Communication through demonstrations, role-play and exercises in order to integrate NVC values and language more into our daily lives.

Regarding the remainder: We ask that you pay the remainder of the course fees within a week of finishing the course. We suggest you pay at the end because we like people to know what they’re paying for. We do this because we wish for your payment to be more connected to gratitude rather than to a sense of duty. If you prefer to pay earlier this is also welcome.
‘The regret period’: If you change your mind within 14 days after sending the prepayment (and 3 days before the course has actually begun), we will fully refund your prepayment.
