The conflicts are inevitable – and they can also be the foundation for development of social and personal skills – if we are able to get closer and focus on the needs behind the conflict. We presents tools to understand and face a conflict by describing facts, feelings and needs and asking for a specific action. NVC (Nonviolent Communication) is a universal tool box you can use to solve conflicts and restore trust.
Regardless of your own role, you can become an agent of transformation within your organization and beyond with our services: coaching, consulting, facilitation, and custom-tailored training.
Our team has put together programs and resources to provide you and your organization with the tools you need to become local, national, and global leaders for transformational change.
We see how preschool children in Agedrup Skole work with NVC to understand their own needs and feelings as well as the feelings and needs of others. Film 1 provides an introduction to a conflict in a preschool. Films 2-4 repeat and elaborate the scenes from film 1 and show in detail how the teacher uses NVC to manage the conflict. Film 5 is about a boy from the 6th grade and his teacher. Children can work with NVC from the age of 6 or 7. Children of all ages can learn how to manage conflicts; the tools are the same.
