What People are Saying about this Program:

“For years, I’ve been interested in offering NVC to the business world, but I’ve known of only one or two people doing this kind of work. And, they’ve seemed private about how they approached it, meaning that they’ve seemed unwilling to describe how they went about it in detail. That all changed when I heard you speak — I learned more from you about using NVC in the business world than I ever expected. And, I’m very grateful for the clarity and insights you’ve given me.”
