You will learn the basic principles of NVC and Compassionate Communication and how to create a fruitful connection with others and yourself.
What is NVC / Compassionate Communication?
You probably will recognize this situation: no matter how hard you work and try and how positive the intentions of all involved may be, you are not getting the desired outcome through your communication. The reason is often simple: few people have learned to communicate effectively at the start of life. Because of this, the things we do and say to each other can create a lot of unnecessary confusion, misunderstanding, and irritation.
NVC / Compassionate Communication is the solution for this problem. You will learn to stick to the facts and get get better at understanding other peoples needs and your own. Learning to listen to and understand the intention people have rather than just hearing the words is quite an art. The clarity you get when you understand what is going on helps you make better choices.
NVC / Compassionate Communication allows you to:
- Communicate more effectively
- Experience a real connection with others and within yourself
- Better understand other people
- Keep listening to each other
- Stick to the facts
- Judge less
- Explore and set boundaries
- To deal with anger and sadness
- Better achieve your goal
During this interactive on-line basic training NVC / Compassionate Communication, Govert will show you the theory behind NVC and Compassionate Communication and how you to apply this in practice. We then start to explore our own feelings and needs in specific situations. You will work together on exercises in small Zoom breakout groups to get better at expressing what you are doing and trying to achieve and how to inform others of your intent. Obviously you want to speak in a way that your message gets across in such a way that it creates understanding and increases the chances for collaboration! This requires practice and you will notice that at the end of each session you will already have much more clarity for yourself. By looking at all of this with a sense of humor you will find it easier to assimilate what you learn.

The training brought me what I had hoped for. I arrived with a lot of positive energy and went home with a lot more positive energy. – Saskia Grooten
Immediately during the training I had the feeling that the quarter dropped for me; I felt touched because I could recognise the examples given in my own life and this made it real. I made me want more of this. Govert has the ability to put participants at ease and to create an open and pleasant atmosphere. – Lidi van Thuijl
During the training Govert inspired me and in a short time gave me useful insights into Nonviolent Communication in general and in my own role in this. – Irene Buijing
