Event description

Description

In this deeply experiential program, you develop the skills needed to be an effective communicator in Agile work environments and in all your relationships.

Work with the only Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in Southern California who specializes in serving the Agile community. Through games, interactive exercises, mindfulness techniques, coached role plays and improvisational theater, you receive hands-on practice on how to apply NVC to transform common workplace challenges and real-life challenges you are currently facing.

What Is Nonviolent Communication (NVC)?

NVC is an empathy-based set of principles and practices that promote psychological safety, collaboration, innovation, inclusion and connection across differences. It's used around the world in companies including Microsoft, Google, Nissan and Samsung to promote human-centered work environments. It is also used internationally in education, parenting, mediation, social activism and other environments where people influence positive change.

Learning Objectives

  • Make it easy and safe to speak honestly and constructively during retrospectives and other performance discussions.
  • Engage people who might appear to have different values or priorities.
  • Get your message heard.
  • Ask for what you want.
  • Listen beyond the words to identify the core needs of the other person.
  • Empathize instead of react.
  • Influence without authority, especially up the chain of command.
  • Build a culture of teamwork, innovation, collaboration and inclusion.
