Non Violent Communication.
Communication can be challenging in every field.
Here on the farm, living and working together, we can also face difficulties. Thus we’ve realised the importance of it for the sustainability of a project like ours.
Good thing is that amazing tools exist to improve communication skills.
The one I’d like to share with you is Marsall B. Rosenberg’s Non Violent Communication.
NVC aims to find a way for all present to reach their needs without the use of guilt, humiliation, shame, blame, coercion, or threats. It is a tool that can be used for resolving conflicts, connecting with others, and living in a way that is conscious, present, and attuned to the genuine, living needs of yourself and others.
NVC delineates four components of communication:
1) Observations free of evaluations;
2) Feelings straight from the heart;
3) Needs, values and longings; and
4) Requests expressed clearly in positive action language.
