Collaborative Communication Workshop

This highly experiential, hands-on workshop is based on Marshall Rosenberg's work on communicating and listening more effectively using Nonviolent Communication (NVC). We will cover the four fundamental steps of nonviolent communication: observing without judging, expressing feelings when observing, expressing and clarifying one's needs to the feelings one observes, and expressing specific requests. 

Participants will:

• Learn the four easy steps of collaborative communication;

• Practice communicating in small groups;

• Participants will learn how to use language and dialog to improve  performance, reinforce positive behaviors and improve negative ones
