An Introduction to NVC

– Workshop –

​Communication grounded in self-awareness and self-responsibility, not blame

a 90 min live interactive introductory workshop

In this 90-min session, we’ll give you a first glimpse of NVC and how it contrasts with the typical conversations we have when emotions rise.


At the core of the session is not only will you hear the difference in words, but you’ll experience the difference in underlying energy that you feel. Additionally, it provides a framework for learning NVC that we use throughout basic and advanced workshops.



The concepts introduced in this session include the four parts of needs-based communication (observation, feelings, needs, requests) and the four skills sets of needs-based communication (pausing when reactive, self-connection, authentic expression, empathic listening).


Come and see the beautiful simplicity of NVC along with the invitation—and challenge—to develop a new perspective of seeing people through human needs.

  1. ​It is a prerequisite for NVC BASIC
