What is Nonviolent Communication?
Nonviolent Communication is the integration of 4 things:
Consciousness: a set of principles that support living a life of compassion, collaboration, courage, and authenticity
Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance
Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even in disagreement and how to move toward solutions that work for all
Means of influence: sharing “power with others” rather than using “power over others”
