NVC: The Game Changer in Conflict Resolution

Improving Crucial Conversations

Nonviolent Communication has revolutionized the way people communicate when the stakes are high. Reaching solutions are much higher when NVC skills are applied to the conversation. Practicing mutual respect when entering into difficult conversations is crucial to being able to reach solutions and agreement, as each party needs to feel heard so their needs and values are met. How to say what needs to be said while avoiding an argument is all part of the conversation. Feelings and unmet needs will be tracked to create a space where both parties are able to hear each other. Connecting through empathic listening opens a field for having meaningful connection between people who are disagreeing. These skills have been applied between warring parties in real life with amazing results.

  • Take the lead in tough conversations
  • Gain skills in resolving touchy complex issues
  • Use empathy to defuse difficult conversations

No one deserves our gratitude more than the late Marshall Rosenberg, who lived his life just as the title of one of his books states: Speak Peace in a World of Conflict. He was keenly aware of the maxim (or warning) that’s contained in the subtitle of that book: What You Say Next Will Change Your World. Personal reality always contains a story, and the story we live, beginning from infancy, is based on language. This became the foundation of Marshall’s approach to conflict resolution, getting people to exchange words in a way that excludes judgments, blame, and violence.” … “He leaves footprints that the rest of us can follow. If we have true self-interest at heart, we will follow. It’s the only alternative in a world desperately seeking wisdom and the end of strife.” —Deepak Chopra
