WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: This one-day workshop introduces a simple yet profound process: how to prevent or peacefully resolve differences by connecting with another person's feelings and needs. You may also connect more deeply and authentically with your own feelings and needs. When you use it, you will find more ways to address both persons' interests, and communicate in a way that increases goodwill and cooperation. This approach, used world-wide to resolve disputes, is also known as "Nonviolent Communication", or "NVC", developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg.

Constructive Communication helps people:
  • Express themselves fully and authentically
  • Practice compassion and natural giving
  • Resolve differences and accommodate different viewpoints
  • Break patterns of thinking that contribute to stress

Workshop content:
  • The purpose of Constructive Communication
  • "Power Over" vs. "Power With": the intention behind the model
  • The Jackal and the Giraffe: How life stances affect the language we use
  • Four Steps of the Model, examples
  • Respond to criticism, blame, anger
  • Using Constructive Communication with ourselves and others
  • Finding your own approach: how to apply what you’ve learned and make it your own
  • Small group practice

LEADER: Kathleen Conway (MA, Communication Arts) leads effective, engaging and practical workshops in communication skills throughout Canada and the U.S. She has been President of Camden Communications, Inc., a Montréal-based firm, since 1989. Clients include GlaxoSmithKline, ScotiaBank, Visa Canada, Indigo Books & Music, and Rogers Communications Inc.
