I’m so glad I signed up for this workshop. First, it prompted me to read the book which I’d been meaning to do for some time but never got around to. And second, reviewing the content in an open, supportive forum with like-minded individuals, under the supervision and guidance of our fearless leader, Scott, really brought to life the principles and perspectives of NVC in a way I could not have achieved from a solo read of the book. While I am nowhere near an expert in NVC, I’m noticing the effects and patterns of “violent communication” in my personal and professional life and have begun to discover the power of empathy as a “first instinct” when it comes to what would have historically been an otherwise tense and fruitless argument. All of this is a long-winded way of saying: attend a workshop!
