The 4 Steps of Nonviolent Communication

One of my favorite models of oral communication – and one I find very effective for solving personal conflicts – is Marshall Rosenberg’s theory of nonviolent communication.

The goal of nonviolent communication is to express ourselves authentically and honestly, to listen with empathy and to deal with potential conflict respectfully and considerately.

The foundation of nonviolent communication is the willingness and the ability to approach and perceive issues in a non-judgmental way.

In other words, speak without any aggression, hidden threats, veiled criticism or (even) excessive praise. (In Rosenberg’s view, unless it is directed at a person’s actions and supported with specific facts about what needs those actions fulfilled for you, praise is also judgment; it can leave your communication partners feeling observed and in the dark about what you really appreciate about them.)
