Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and the Enneagram (Our Family Services)

December 7, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come learn and practice powerful communication tools and a rich and deep personality system to understand human behavior and our choices in the way we live and how we connect to our needs. You will…

Increase your EQ (emotional intelligence) by learning which of the nine points of view you tend to use and how they impact your perceptions of the world.

Identify, understand and address the underlying needs present in every interaction you have – whether it is with colleagues at work, family members at home, or in your volunteer work with your church or neighborhood or that special non-profit you devote your heart to helping.

Understand how the wisdom of the Enneagram and the practice of NVC can transform relationships that are tense and frustrating into relationships that are respectful and productive

NVC is a concrete set of skills that helps us to clarity what we are observing, what emotions we are feeling, what values we want to live by, and what we want to ask of ourselves and others. The Enneagram teaches how valuable all perspectives are while helping us understand our unique way of viewing the world – both perspectives lead to increased rapport with each other.

These skills are important to…

Managers and co-workers in the workplace.

Teachers, faculty and administrators in education.

Volunteer leadership on boards of directors, in church communities, HOA’s and neighborhood organizations

Social service professionals supporting their clients.
