Nonviolent Communication - Module 1
Shaping change with people - not against them

When something bothers us about a person's behavior, we tend to evaluate the other person internally or verbally and judge their behavior. This way of perceiving and communicating is usually ineffective and hurts relationships, whether in partnership or in business. This first module supports you in recognizing your deeper concerns behind your criticisms and judgments and communicating them in a way that is appropriate to the situation. This enables clarity, constructive encounters and sustainable solutions.
