Communication Dojo, Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

“Connected Conversation Process” – instructional video

Here Ali Miller (www.alimillermft.com) and Communication Dojo’s New Bailey portray a couple, Debbie and Jason, who have a mildly contentious conversation. They then try using the “Connected Conversation Process,” the foundational process of the Communication Dojo, to navigate through their conflict with greater mutual understanding and connection.

TIME 100:  One of the first books Satya Nadella recommended to his staff after taking the top job at Microsoft was Nonviolent Communication, an unconventional choice for a company where aggressive communicators thrived.  (See also: CEO Nadella’s interview, “…look, let us make sure we are empathetic to each other’s needs, because it requires that.”)

Collaborative Communication Training:

Findings from Merck, Inc., supported by research conducted by the Center for Collaborative Communication, document significant benefits of listening skill training in the workplace.

In a two-part study jointly conducted by Merck Inc. and the Center for Collaborative Communication, significant results were found as a result of workplace communication training, including greater efficiency, effectiveness, motivation and team work. See the report here:  Summary of Impact AssessmentResearch Report &/or Resources

See also ~  Testimonials such as that of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP):  “I have recognized that there is a science to the art of communication – there are models to be used; models that can be practiced. I know how to listen to clients, understand their needs and address their issues.”

    Wow! Pamela! Thank you so much for all of the links and information about what I am offering! This so supports the world we are co-creating! I want my grandchildren to grow up to study war in school as HISTORY instead of Current Events! With 7 billion people on the planet I calculate the tipping point to be around 140 million adapting Nonviolent Communication as a way to connect that will co-create a world that works for all. I sense we are almost there!
