Leslie Williamson On Nonviolent Communication

peaceful conflict resolution at work & home

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is both a philosophy and a system of communication that empowers individuals to achieve greater empathy for others by developing a sense of one’s own needs and feelings.

NVC can be used to resolve conflicts and create win-win solutions. It can be used in all relationships—in the workplace and with family and friends. Nonviolent communication techniques can enhance our sense of security, allowing others to be heard, which opens up communication and creates understanding. When we apply NVC principles, we are able to take control of our life and maintain integrity consistent with our deepest values.

practice nvc and discover how to:

  • Walk through your everyday life with a much deeper sense of confidence in self.
  • Feel confident about speaking your ‘truth’ as you know it.
  • Operate from a place of calm contentment in all areas of your life.
  • Be confident in having those uncomfortable conversations you find yourself facing throughout life.
  • As you continue to practice these communication skills, you will attain a more profound understanding of who you really are.

“Nonviolent Communication allows our natural compassion to flourish. It guides us to reframe the way we express ourselves and listen to others by focusing our consciousness on four areas: what we are observing, feeling, and needing, and what we are requesting to enrich our lives. NVC fosters deep listening, respect, and empathy and engenders a mutual desire to give from the heart.” –Marshall Rosenberg
