How many times has an unsatisfactory and all-to-familiar conversation left you saying to yourself, "This just isn't working"? You're probably right. It isn't working ... not for you, and not for the other person either.
Your tone, word choice, and body language speak volumes. What you're trying to achieve, how you're going about doing it and how it's finally being heard by others might be completely out of sync. Maybe it's time to learn a new language - a language that helps you say what's on your mind in a way that doesn't alienate and frustrate.
Nonviolent Communication (NVC) encourages open and honest dialogue that can help anyone - boss, employee, partner, parent - have his or her input considered and valued without loss of self-esteem, build-up of resentment, coercion, or fear of retribution.
Whether you face conflicts and challenges at home or in the workplace, attending an NVC workshop may be one of the most rewarding decisions you ever make.
I have presented a variety of workshops in cities throughout Canada and the US. Private workshops are hosted by an institution or organization and can be booked by contacting me directly; Public workshops are hosted by my company, Mindful Communication as well as by Leader's Edge, a BC company that I affiliate with. Topics are specific, interactive, educational and informative – and a great way to meet other like-minded individuals. Workshop length can range from a basic half-day introductory session to a five-day retreat. All workshop materials are provided plus optional full-service workshop promotion and registration co-ordination. Click here for upcoming dates and cities.

Who should attend?
I enjoyed the relaxed presentation rather than ‘in your face’ style and how Rachelle related to her own life experiences. The workshop opens up new communication skills.
