“If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.”

(Henry Ford)

Positive communication at the workplace is a training offer for companies, organisations and individuals who wish to communicate in a way that creates and maintains connection – even in challenging situations. Based on the clearly structured process and life-affirming attitude of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) you will learn to:

  • Recognize and understand your own patterns of communication
  • Express your concerns without provoking resistance from your counterpart
  • Empathize with the concerns of your counterpart without necessarily agreeing to them
  • Find solutions to conflicts that benefit everyone involved

The results are respectful and authentic interactions at eye level.

Content and Methods

Typical content for trainings on positive communication at the workplace include:

  • The 4-step model of Nonviolent Communication
  • Creating connections through self-empathy, self-expression and empathy for others
  • Expressing appreciation in a way that it can be received well
  • Saying no without abandoning the relationship
  • Constructive ways of dealing with “mistakes”

All workshops and trainings are practice-oriented with short theoretical inputs, individual exercises or exercises in small groups, role plays as well as panel discussions. It is possible to work with examples from your own work life. The approach is relaxed and joyful.


Employee Trainings

For companies and organisations of all kinds, we offer tailor-made in-house trainings on positive communication at the workplace ranging from a half-day to two days in length as well as continuing practise-groups.

“Very inspiring! I would right away participate in another training by Lisa.”

– Simone Ungersböck, Head of Office in the local office in Albania, Austrian Development Agency

„Lisa’s NVC workshop was very powerful and really fulfilling for my team. The NVC approach really changed my awareness of how powerful words are and enabled me to understand myself and others better. With her understanding, warmth and perfect-going pace, Lisa really made it a great experience for us and I can definitely say that my team and I all remember it with great satisfaction. I can highly recommend it to any individual or group of people!”
