What is Nonviolent Communication?

Nonviolent Communication, also known as Compassionate Communication, is a process that was developed by Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D. in the 1960s.
It is the integration of 4 things

  1. Consciousness: a set of principles that support living a life of compassion, collaboration, courage, and authenticity.
  2. Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance
  3. Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even in disagreement, and how to move toward solutions that work for all.
  4. Means of influence: sharing "power with others" rather than using "power over others".

NVC develops a consciousness that promotes clear communication, deep understanding, and genuine, respectful connection between individuals and teams. Educational institutions, businesses, law enforcement, medical organizations, and governmental bodies across the world have attested to the effectiveness of NVC training.
