Jo McHale will be running a experiential session using the ethos and principles of Nonviolent Communication.
It’s often claimed that the thorniest problems at work and at home are about the ‘soft stuff’ – managing ourselves when our buttons are pressed, being empathic towards people who are somehow ‘different’ from us, communicating our intentions or dealing with conflict. Our habitual reactions tend towards binary thinking: right or wrong; good or bad; yes or no; it is or it isn’t. And, taking this mindset further, we resort to varying degrees of fight or flight, thinking that the only options open to us are ‘my way’ or ‘your way’ and that the best we can hope for is some sort of compromise.
Jo McHale will be running an experiential session exploring ways of moving from ‘me and you’ to ‘WE’. She will be using the ethos and principles of Nonviolent Communication (developed by Marshall Rosenberg), as well as drawing on tools from Organisation and Relationship System Coaching (ORSC) devised by Marita Fridjhon and Faith Fuller of Creating Right Relationship (CRR Global).
Jo describes Nonviolent Communication as a way of being masquerading as a communication process, and has made it part of her life for almost 20 years. She is also trained in Organisation and Relationship System Coaching and is excited by how the systemic approach looks at the practice of relationship and enables every voice in a system to be heard. Combining the two brings a powerful approach to coaching and facilitating that can get to the heart of things very quickly and provide a blue print to help people work together better. She is a highly experienced coach and trainer.
