- Would your organization benefit from simple direct skills for communicating and connecting even in the midst of stress and conflict?
- Do you want clear authentic communication that enhances the vision and mission of your organization?
- Do you want your employees to have the skills to contribute to a sustainable future for your workplace?
As trainers, we enjoy sharing the skills associated with Nonviolent Communication (NVC), the work developed by clinical psychologist Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. Dr. Rosenberg developed this body of work over the course of 40 years and the NVC community is currently active in 65 countries. Learn practical communication skills that work in all contexts and increase empathy for yourself and for others. We build our presentations and workshops around your structures and needs.
We offer specially tailored workshops in the following:
- Open Communication
- Giving & receiving feedback
- Third-sider skills (mediation)
Open Communication Workshops
Open Communication is our synthesis of Nonviolent Communication, empathy and neuroscience. We help individuals develop communication skills that support them in taking more personal responsibility, while providing meaningful skills to create more connection even when conflict arises. The result is more authentic harmony and productive communication to get the work done.
These skills help people think in a way that enhances collaboration and sustainable working relationships.
Giving and Receiving Feedback is our synthesis of Nonviolent Communication and the work of Douglas Stone & Sheila Heen as presented in the book Thanks for the Feedback. Work teams benefit from being able to give and receive feedback that supports individual growth and group effectiveness.
There is a growing understanding of the importance of empathy as a component of sustainable workplaces.
The empathy aspect of Nonviolent Communication and neuroscience can be taught as a stand alone skill which will help strengthen the bonds within the workplace. Our workshops can address both giving empathy and self-empathy.
Third-Sider Workshops link our Nonviolent Communication and mediation offerings. Once the basic Open Communication workshops are complete, select people can receive advanced training in applying these skills to resolving conflicts between other people. We call these skilled people “third-siders.” They receive basic mediation skills in addition to deepening their Nonviolent Communication capacities.
