Free myself from cultural conditioning that is at odds with how I want to live my life; 2. To acquire the power to connect with myself and others in a way that allows me to give naturally from my heart; 3. To acquire the power to create structures that support that way of giving.”

How Non Violent Communication works for Employees self improvement, Understanding and discovery.

  • Observation -> what are you seeing, touching, hearing without evaluating or judging it (A)
  • Feeling -> what does it create inside you, what emotion without adding a story or thoughts to it (B)
  • Needs -> what do you desire without thinking of a strategy to get there (C)
  • Request -> what specific action would you like to ask without demanding it (D)
