Portrait of Martha Lasley

Martha Lasley


Martha Lasley is a Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication since 2008, living in The United States. She works with movers, shakers and changemakers to deepen their authenticity, create meaningful relationships and advocate for social justice. She also works at the Authentic Communication Group where transformation is based on four pillars: Nonviolent Communication; Internal Family Systems; Social Justice; and Here and Now Process Work. 

As a founding partner of Leadership that Works, for 25 years she supported leaders to share power and transform organizations. In their Coaching for Transformation program they trained and certified thousands of coaches who do deep work and are committed to social change. They developed a powerful team of facilitators who drive positive change in the world. 

Today, she works with small groups to transform the domination culture. They explore power dynamics, feedback, relationships and aliveness.

She has written three books: Courageous Visions; Facilitating with Heart; and Coaching for Transformation. You can find them all on and you can read the first chapter of Facilitating with Heart for free.

She likes to support social justice activists so that more people meet more needs and we create the world we have been longing for. What's most important to her is connecting from the heart - helping folks create intentional relationships that are intimate, real, and impactful.

Her vision is to see people from every nook and cranny of the world skilled in facilitating heart connection. She supports NVC practitioners to develop organizations, mediate conflict, transform relationships, and support social change initiatives.
