10:00am - 12:00pm
My friend Mali, who is a skilled NVC practitioner, is hosting this free workshop along with Ryan McAllister. To help learning go faster and to create a more engaging workshop, Mali and Ryan are organizing this as an interaction-driven workshop that will use real life events, scenarios, anticipated conversations from the participants who are willing to play out in front of the group. They recommend that you come with a scenario in mind that you'd like to work.
"Communication is a vast part of our lives. Yet, we may experience many communications, from conversations to emails, as unsatisfying, disconnecting, or the starting place for conflict. We will explore this listening aspect of collaborative communication in a facilitated, interactive format, using real-life situations and events that you can bring."
