Level 1 foundation trainings are the first step to learning the basic skills of NVC.

They are designed for people new to NVC or who want to refresh their knowledge of the key components
It is the core training that most trainers / facilitators will ask for if you want to do further training in NVC

We will cover and practice:

  • the four step NVC model that will act as a map to transforming your usual way of thinking and speaking
  • Why and how to live and speak more relationally - me AND you, not me OR you
  • What empathy is, what it isn’t and why it matters
  • Self-empathy as a foundational step to be able to be able to claim and celebrate that we have needs
  • What gets in the way of expressing yourself with greater honesty and what makes it easier to speak your truth
  • How to speak up for your needs, make requests of others whilst giving space to hear a no.
  • What we can do differently when people demand things of us
  • Better ways to get what we need without demanding
  • Holding the dilemma of two different opinions together even when there appears to be no unifying solution
  • Listening to others and guessing at what matters to them without taking their judging and blaming personally
  • and more…
