TESTIMONIALS:

 

  • "I find the weekly series to be very supportive for my personal growth in communicating needs and feelings. Getting in touch with my needs and feelings is something that I’ve lost as a child. I am also grateful for having a consistent group of folks learning and growing together as we are experiencing life and practicing the tools from NVC." —Jen Cheng, Senior Software Engineer
  • "James Prieto's NVC class was amazing! I will use his communication techniques the rest of my life. I'm deeply grateful." Tom - Principal at Tom Knott & Associates

DESIRES: Most of us want connection, to be known, to be understood and a sense of belonging. Even deeper, we want agency in how we show up in the world -- to develop skills that can improve the quality of our relationships, to deepen our sense of personal empowerment and to communicate more effectively.

 

CHALLENGE: Unfortunately, most of us have been educated from birth to compete, judge, demand and diagnose; to think and communicate in terms of what is “right“ and “wrong“ with people. At best, the habitual ways we think and speak hinder communication and create misunderstanding and frustration. And still worse, they can cause anger and pain, and may lead to violence. Without wanting to, even people with the best of intentions generate needless conflict. In our culture, we are taught to stuff emotions, to “suck it up” and “be tough”. We are often driven to be “selfless” in our giving, to give even when we don’t have resources available, and that our needs don’t matter. Our own “inner critic” has a tremendous impact on our mood, and we aren’t taught tools for dealing with them. At work especially we are encouraged to wear a mask to pretend everything is okay even when it’s not. Conflict arises when different positions are expressed, people’s emotions get triggered and usually blame others for them. The loudest voices and bigger titles usually win. It isn’t safe to be real; instead we are encouraged to be “nice.”

 

A NEW PARADIGM: The intention behind NVC is authentic connection, to get to a “symphony of mutual understanding.” Through NVC, we get to take off the mask, to fully express what’s true for us in the moment, while allowing others the same privilege. NVC encourages valuing dialogue over any particular outcome; to listen for what’s real and alive for everyone participating. Giving a framework for compassionate communication, we learn the importance of separating fact from opinion, to fully acknowledge and take personal responsibility for our feelings and to make clear doable requests. Beyond having a model, NVC can be practiced as a way of life.

About NVC:  The intention behind NVC is authentic connection, to get to a “symphony of mutual understanding.” Through NVC, we get to take off the mask, to fully express what’s true for us in the moment, while allowing others the same privilege. NVC encourages valuing dialogue over any particular outcome; to listen for what’s real and alive for everyone participating. Giving a framework for compassionate communication, we learn the importance of separating fact from opinion, to fully acknowledge and take personal responsibility for our feelings and to make clear doable requests.

NVC is a non-judgmental paradigm of relating that includes introspection, deep listening with empathy, and honest expression. NVC was started by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD in the 1960s. Today, NVC is taught around the world, and has been applied in a wide variety of contexts, including business and nonprofit settings. Formal studies have begun to document the benefits of NVC, which include organizational effectiveness, increased efficiency, and support for individual well-being.

1. Services Provided
Consulting, Coaching, Training, Facilitation services are provided. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is not therapy -- not a clinical service. Nonviolent Communication is a "language of life" -- reference the book with that title by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD. The purpose of coaching and training is to provide information about NVC related practices. While you may be invited to bring real life situations for practice, we will only work with feelings of intensity 5 or less out of 10 (being the most intense) -- i.e. not working with trauma. Consulting clients, coaching clients and workshop participants are responsible for their own personal emotional safety.

2. Prices And Payment
Prices for workshops or events are listed in the website; promotional codes may provide discounts to stated prices. Hourly service prices are negotiated and agreed by all parties and confirmed via email. Payment is expected before the scheduled session begins. Services scheduled may be canceled without penalty if done with 24 hours notice.

3. Shipping And Delivery
Not applicable at this time.

4. Guarantees And Warranties
No guarantees or warranties are provided.

5. Refunds And Complaints
Requests for refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis, in a good-faith effort to acknowledge everyone's needs. Some trainings require changes to be notified some time before the event and are listed in the event description. Complaints should be directed through the Contact form on the home page; the consultant providing the service will communicate in integrity with the values of nonviolent communication (NVC). If an impasse is reached, and the stakes warrant, another NVC mediation will be used to address the complaint.

Liability is limited to the cost of the services provided. Not liable for any indirect damages that may occur.
