Compassionate Communication or User Guide to NVC - with Natasha Hill
From young age we have been educated to compete, judge, criticise and demand, often communicating in very unhelpful ways that may create anger, misunderstanding, distrust and frustration. Nonviolent Communication is a powerful tool that can help you to transform your relationships with other people, and even with yourself. It enables you to shift from a world of blame, judgment and conflict, to a world of empathy, honesty, clarity and empowerment. In this workshop we will explore the basic concepts, practices and skills of NVC and we will practice using Compassionate Communication to: - connect to ourselves and other people in a more authentic way; - make requests that are more likely to be accepted; - transform patterns of thinking that lead to guilt, shame or anger. Agenda: 18:30 - Networking, food and drinks 19:00 – Natasha's workshop and Q&A 20:30 - More networking and drinks 21:00 - Departure About the speaker Natasha is an experienced and passionate Scrum Master, Professional and Agile Coach, servant-leader and Agile advocate from Hotels.com/ Expedia.
