Numerous studies, books, and articles show that companies and organizations are experiencing a crisis.

Survey after survey shows that the majority of employees feel disengaged from their companies.
The epidemic of organizational disillusionment goes way beyond corporations – teachers, doctors, and nurses are leaving their professions in record numbers because the way we run schools and hospitals kills their vocation. Government agencies and non-profits have a noble purpose, but working for these entities often feels soulless and lifeless just the same.

All these organizations suffer from power games played at the top and powerlessness at lower levels, from infighting and bureaucracy, from endless meetings and a seemingly never-ending succession of change and cost-cutting programs.          
—Reinventing Organizations

Staff are disillusioned, de-motivated, burned out, and disengaged – both in the corporate and nonprofit sectors. Old management models are becoming increasingly ineffective and irrelevant in our highly interactive, high-tech age.

What can be done to help repair and heal this deeply challenging schism?

The practice of Collaborative (Compassionate) Communication offers a clear pathway for moving through this crisis. It provides specific skills for fostering intrinsic motivation, appreciation, openness, creativity, collaboration, and engagement – creating new systems at work and changing society as a whole.

Sharing NVC with people in organizations can be deeply satisfying and effective for a variety of reasons. First of all, you’re working with a built-in community (teams of employees) who’re spending a significant amount of time together – and they’re already motivated to communicate more effectively. Second, once the staff learns to practice NVC, they bring these skills home, impacting the community as a whole. And third – for NVC trainers in particular – sharing NVC with organizations can play a key role in our sustainability, supporting us in continuing to share these life-changing skills with the world.
In this videoconference, you’ll receive inside information and support from a coach and trainer with over 10 years experience working with a range of organizations, from small nonprofits to major NGOs and Fortune 100 companies. You’ll benefit by gaining “Know-How” and clarity about your goals for bringing NVC into the world… confidence in how to approach clients… how to design and deliver effective workplace trainings… and how to retain those clients and build your NVC business.

Participants will learn – and practice – how to:

What People Are Saying About This Course

For years, I've been interested in offering NVC to the business world, but I've known of only one or two people doing this kind of work. And, they've seemed private about how they approached it – meaning that they've seemed unwilling to describe how they went about it in detail. That all changed when I heard Dian speak. I'm very grateful for the clarity and insights you've given me.  —L.R., USA
