Cate Crombie uses Non-Violent Communication (NVC) to shift dysfunctional exchanges into out-come focused conversations

Today I had the pleasure of interviewing Cate Crombie, Australia’s leading NVC specialist.

NVC was developed in 1960s by Marshall Rosenberg, PhD Psychologist and first published in his book of the same title.

In the 1980’s he established the not-for-profit Centre for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) www.cnvc.org

This interview’s is a practical introduction to NVC.

Cate steps us taking us through:
~ the 4 key elements of NVC framework
~ how to handle conflict strategies
~ several case studies

Using this framework, not only guides you in the language you use, it provides a practical way to shift interactions from challenging exchanges to connected and collaborative conversations. This framework provides structure and revolutionises conversations.

Enjoy. Cheers Tess
