This workshop will introduce participants to two interrelated concepts: non-violent communication, and accountable communication. The half-day training will provide a theoretical framework from which individuals can learn to communicate from a foundation of accountability and non-violence. Participants will be introduced to aspects of Marshall Rosenberg’s NVC framework as well as a framework developed by the facilitator – Accountable Communication. The workshop will engage participants in a fun and interactive manner. Participants will leave with new insights and some basic communication tools and strategies to enhance interpersonal, professional and organizational communications and relationships.
