Details

   Why do we enjoy some of our conversations and others-not so much?  Sometimes, we feel angry or have nothing to say.  Sometimes, we can’t think of a way to be understood or to get clarity what is being said.  Sometimes, we’re surprised when a conversation we expected to be tough turns out to be easy.

What the qualities of an effective communication?  What are the red flags that tell us that we are about speak in a way we’ll regret later? And how can we pay attention to them when we are already upset?  What can we do when we’ve had a conversation we regret? How do we repair those tattered relationships?

Our difficult conversations tell us a lot about ourselves when we know what to notice. There are ways to prepare for them, learn from them, and change course so we don’t get too far into them.  In this two day workshop, we will go deeper into Nonviolent Communications to look at these difficult conversations and develop new understanding and practice effective strategies when we are in them.

Who is it for?

  Anybody who has previously completed NVC Basic Weekend and would like dig a little deeper into nonviolent communications to look at difficult conversations and develop new understanding and practice effective strategies when we are in them. Please note this is an 18+ event.
