From Conflict to Connection
How to Communicate Collaboratively
Facilitator Kiran Patel, M.A., C.Y.T.
Saturdays September 21 through October 12
Are you sometimes unsatisfied in your conversations?
Or have no idea where the other person is coming from?
Maybe you feel your needs don’t matter… Or are you at a loss for finding win-win solutions? Come learn keys to better navigate challenges with others. You will find your power when difficult emotions take over—and understand how to create a heart connection so that your conflicts dissolve and get resolved. This hands-on workshop is based in Marshall Rosenberg’s internationally-used Nonviolent Communication (NVC) process. We will practice with personal situations, leaving you feeling relieved and hopeful. You will leave…
- Versed in the four core components of the NVC process (observation, feelings, needs, requests)
- Resourced to strategically navigate a challenging conversation using the two key NVC approaches (empathy and expression)
- Equipped to recognize inner reactions that block heart-connection and shift them to an open-heart
