What we're about

The purpose of the group is to learn and practice communicating compassionately through Nonviolent Communication (NVC). People with an interest in improving their communication skills in all contexts would benefit from this group (relationships, parenting, leadership, coaching, organizations, etc).

NVC is a non-judgmental paradigm of relating that includes introspection, deep listening with empathy, and honest expression. NVC was started by Marshall Rosenberg (http://youtu.be/M-129JLTjkQ), PhD in the 1960s, and has been used throughout the world as a tool for conflict resolution, community building and peace. For more information on NVC, please go to the Center for Nonviolent Communication at www.cnvc.org.

When joining this group, please include a picture that clearly shows your face. Business, business casual, or casual clothing required at all times.

About the "Giraffes" - the giraffe is used within the NVC community as a living metaphor for NVC consciousness because of its long neck for great visibility and hearing, for its ability to eat thorns for nutrition, and for its very large heart.
