NVC FOUNDATION 2 Online Training - EMPATHIC LISTENING FOR CONNECTION
Foundation 2 – Empathic Listening for Connection
Sunday Nov. 20, 2023 from 1:00-5:30 pm ET
Our ability to be present to ourselves and others with empathy and clarity can make the difference between a breakdown and a breakthrough.
Nonviolent Communication™ excels in providing practical ways to 1) strengthen or repair relationships and 2) get to the heart of what is really the matter behind criticisms, resistance, and judgements. We all want to matter. We'll use role-play and real-play (practicing with your situations) to develop your ability to listen for transformation. Once there is connection and understanding, so much more is possible. Join us to learn the intention, concepts and skills for empathic listening.
This interactive teleconference training will be 20% presentation and 80% activities for learning and practice.
Who is it for: Beginners who like active learning. It is not necessary to have completed Foundation 1.
If cost is an issue, a payment plan or tuition reduction is possible. Contact Henry to discuss options.
