[In English] Introductory lecture “Honesty and empathy – how to build connection with others”
Are you wondering what is the secret of creating good connection with other people?
Do you want to know how to talk to them so that they understand what you mean and do not get offended or angry?
Maybe you want support and understanding, but you do not know how to ask for it and you usually suppress your emotions till the moment of explosion “for no reason”?
Imagine how it would be if you could easily get along with people in your surroundings, experiencing authenticity, empathy and acceptance…
During this lecture we would like to share with you some tips that can help you take care of the quality of the relationships you are longing for. We will present you the concept of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and offer you simple tools that you can use in your everyday life.
If you take part in this lecture you will:
– get to know the definition of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and its basic assumptions
– learn what is empathy according to NVC and how to listen with empathy
– gain knowledge about possible barriers in communication
– broaden your vocabulary describing feelings and needs
– learn about four steps of NVC and four basic distinctions
– be able to formulate more concrete requests
– learn how to be honest without hurting others at the same time.
If you want to learn more and practice this knowledge on the examples from your life we are inviting you also to the deepening workshop. Check the details HERE.
For people wanting to improve their communication with others (partners, colleagues at work, friends, children, etc.), who are able to understand English.
