NVC FOUNDATION TWO - Empathic Listening for Connection - Online

We all want to matter. Our ability to be present to ourselves and others with empathy and clarity can make the difference between a breakdown and a breakthrough.  Once​ there is​ connection and understanding, so much more is possible.

Nonviolent Communication™ excels in providing practical ways to: 

- Strengthen or repair relationships. 
- Get to the heart of what is really the matter behind criticisms, resistance, and judgments.  

We’ll use role-play and real-play (practicing with your situations) to develop your ability to listen for transformation. Join us to learn the concepts and skills for empathic listening.

Training is 20% presentation and 80% activities for learning and practice.
