NVC encourages us to examine our motives and intentions and align them with the feelings and needs of others. Rachelle has worked with our organization for the past twelve months and has presented NVC workshops in numerous, sometimes challenging, settings. We have been impressed by her professionalism, and by her ability to communicate compassionately even in the most difficult situations with those who start off communicating in a competitive, non-NVC way. She has risen to the challenge of presenting a large amount of information in a small amount of time. She’s also an excellent model for the techniques she teaches. The workshop materials she helped us develop have provided the stimulus for us to practice compassionate communication both at work and at home, and to improve our relationships in both places. As new as we are to NVC, our unpolished beginners’ efforts get better results than our old style of interaction.
This is pretty powerful stuff . . . and is definitely worth pursuing. Incorporating these practices in our interactions would reduce misunderstandings and conflict in the workplace.
