Connecting Honesty

 

We offer a variety of services to meet the various needs that people may have at different times.

1) Training

  1. To improve situations at work and in your personal life, you may need to know:

  2. 1.What connecting honesty looks, sounds and feels like.
    Many people tell us that they have rarely experienced this before - and they like it!

  3. 2.The specific tools and skills that produce connecting communication.
    What to do and say when. (And, maybe more important, what not to say or do when.)

  4. 3.How to access your willingness to communicate in this way - even when others aren’t.
    And to know why it is worth it - not just intellectually but in your gut.

2) Practice

Communication is a skill - like riding a bicycle. Just as most of us didn’t learn to ride a bike in a single session, most of us won’t master connecting honesty through training alone. It takes ongoing practice.

So we also offer regular practice sessions to give you a safe, supportive and encouraging space to try out the skills you’ve learned.

At these sessions, Glenda also offers coaching and support as requested, to expand on and deepen your understanding and skill,
as you are ready to take the next step in mastery.

See Practice Group Info (under “Upcoming Workshops”) for more

3) A Chance to be Heard

It can be really helpful to vent or talk everyday challenges through
with someone who will just listen - without judgement, storytelling, or giving you unwanted advice. 

This is one of the skills we work on during trainings & practice sessions.
And Connecting Honesty community members may also offer this to one another between sessions.

The neat thing is, it is as fun & satisfying to give this kind of support
as it is to receive it!  (For more challenging situations, see #5 below)

4) Community of Support

Trainings and practice groups provide opportunities for you to get to know other members of the connecting honesty community.

In the process, you may decide you’d like to meet informally for connection, support, and practice.

In addition, we hold periodic community social events. To stay informed about upcoming events, sign up for our monthly newsletter.

5) Skilled One-on-One Coaching and Support

Sometimes, when things are tough, you may want the support of someone particularly skilled, who can hear what you are thinking, feeling, and needing even more deeply and compassionately than you can.

Who can help you hear all parts of yourself with compassion -
even the parts you don’t like.

And can help you identify your right path forward - a path that honours
all of what is important to you.

6) Mediation / Dialogue Support

Other times, you may sense that it would be helpful to have a facilitator present to help invoke that certain “spark” that can help a conversation be truly connecting.

For example, maybe there’s an important but potentially challenging conversation that needs to happen.

Or maybe there’s a conversation that’s been happening over and over again - and you’d really like it to go differently this time. 

To explore this option, send us an email or book a free info phone call.

7) Group Facilitation / Mediation / Dialogue Support

Sometimes the situation involves a group of people - whether a family or an organization or a department. And things won’t fully be resolved until connections are restored between all the group members.

But it can be challenging to do this in a way that is truly effective and doesn’t take forever, but also doesn’t leave things unresolved or sow the seeds of future conflict.

Fortunately, there are ways of expanding connecting honesty to the group level that can achieve all of this.

To explore this option, send us an email or book a free info phone call.

Not sure where to start?

  1. We offer a lot of options - and sometimes that can be overwhelming!

  2. 1.If there is one aspect of our work you are really drawn to, I invite you to consider starting there, using the links above.

  3. 2.Otherwise, the Master Level 1 training is a very effective first choice.

    Even people who have taken many NVC courses before say that this training expanded and deepened their understanding of NVC.

    And people who were brand new to NVC said it was like slipping into a warm bath - it felt easy, natural and comfortable. And, at the same time, full of new and exciting insights.

  4. 3.If you are involved in a very challenging and stressful situation, then I suggest that you start with the Master Level 1 session - and choose the one-on-one format.

    The cost is the same as for a group session, but you get individual attention, which means there is the capacity to deal with a more challenging situation than works in a group setting.

  5. 4.If cost is a significant consideration for you, then you might want to start with a
    monthly practice group session. Note that, if you are not already familiar with NVC,
    you will need to do some reading to get up to speed on the concepts.
