Team Building With Nonviolent Communication

Poor communication in the workplace can lead to inefficiency, employee dissatisfaction and even psychological and physical safety issues. Through NVC training, co-workers become more aware of how they might be contributing to disconnecting conversations. This awareness brings immense opportunity to express more harmony and mutual respect. The flow in the workplace will change as individuals embrace the teachings of NVC: fewer sick days and decreased employee turnover result from the ability to address challenges at work without fear of a conversation going sideways. When we feel heard and understood at work, the result is respect, cooperation, and higher performance.

“The most valuable part of the training has been realizing I can change my response—what need is being met. I realize how in the past I was judgmental and diagnosing.”

“This program should be given to all directors, and elected persons that give directions.”

“The most valuable part of the NVC training is: I am grateful for now having the tools to identify when I am triggered—identifying how I feel and to discover what needs of mine that aren’t being met. I really enjoyed getting to know and be closer with those around me.”

“The most valuable part of the training has been learning to say ‘no,’ and the different approaches of meeting needs and offering empathy.”

“I loved this course—it would be wonderful to have this in the community school and also have more of the Elders and leadership here.”

“I would like to say thank you so much for this wonderful gift it has given me the strength to help myself and in turn help others and my community.”
