Needs-Based Communication (NVC) CORE CONCEPTS:
Enhancing Self-Awareness & Self-Responsibility
a six-hour live interactive Instructor-Led Workshop designed for the workplace
part of the Conscious Leader Development programs at Basileia LLC
This course helps you navigate that "space ... between stimulus and response." For most of us, it is a space where we can easily be triggered into the reactive "fight, flight, freeze" area of our brain. When we think and act from that fear-based place, our effectiveness and impact are diminished, especially as leaders within an organization.
In our values-based leadership assessments, this behavior shows up in our "personal entropy" score, where personal entropy is defined as the amount of fear-driven energy that a person expresses in his or her day-to-day interactions with other people.
Needs-Based Communication (NVC) is a potent process that stimulates new insights and gives us new tools to bridge the space between unconscious reaction and conscious response. It invites us to "stop playing the blame game," by enhancing our self-awareness and self-responsibility. At the same time, it enhances our ability to communicate and collaborate with others in challenging conversations, when emotions are rising, even when we seem to be heading into conflict.
Though this is a foundational course in our Conscious Leadership development programs, it is essentially a course on "Leading Yourself" ... and so it's really a course for anyone ready to enhance self-responsibility for their own life. And while there is a workplace focus on these sessions, participants are also invited to use personal or family situations in terms of applying the process if they choose. The skills and the mindsets are the same no matter where they are applied.
This series focuses on core concepts of NVC, and is a co-requisite for more advanced training for Conscious Leadership, e.g. Conscious Conversations or Conscious Accountability.
This workshop is an interactive, activity-based experience where participants are invited to learn through self-reflection, interactions in pairs or small groups, and engagement with the whole group. Workshops combine innovative, interactive strategies with essential principles of leadership and communication to create a robust learning experience.
Delivery of this interactive workshop may either be as a live on-site event or a live video technology event — or a combination of both, depending on your needs.
Dedicated workshops can be customized and scheduled to meet the unique needs of your organization. Contact us to schedule or for group rates.
