Assertive communication

During this one-day course, you share your experience of connection and conflict in a recent communication at work or at home. You learn the four steps of NVC and develop the skills for meeting challenging situations proactively (NVC ‘requests’). The day includes interactive practices, role-play, and lively learning on issues relevant in your own life.

Empathic listening

This one-day training focuses on the skill of mindful listening (NVC ‘receiving’). Through skillful and sensitive exercises, you explore for yourself the limited effect of ‘ordinary’ listening, and in contrast, discover the dynamic potential of true empathic listening. The pinnacle of the course is the discovery of underlying human needs as a pathway into empathy, and the realm of feeling. You practice hearing others with kindness and understanding, rather than judgment or criticism.

Emotional Intelligence

You have the chance to discuss challenging life situations in a safe and confidential environment, and to uncover gems of learning. You become familiar with the four steps of NVC and learn to apply them to your interactions and relationships.

Effective communication

Towards the end of the second day you venture into the troubled waters of conflict resolution, and find your way back to dry land. t

Nonviolent communication

This is the classic, all-time favorite foundation training for NVC. You learn the four steps of NVC, helpfully re-cast as four mindful choices, and apply them to making honest requests in ways others will want to hear. You also practice ways to receive others, even when they are stressed or angry. The training is full of sharing, interaction and practice scenarios, using role-plays and other interactive methods. Teams benefit from a one-day follow-up within a month.

Conflict resolution and mediation

A two-day course that brings to life the skill of a (formal or informal) mediator. You apply the four steps of NVC to mediating and resolving conflicts for others – and also for yourself. The course is full of case studies, role-plays and mutual feedback.

Leadership

Focusing on communication and emotional intelligence, you may choose to home in on a particular skillset (e.g. feedback giving or goal-setting, etc.), or to cover the whole spectrum of leadership skills, in several modules.
