What is Nonviolent Communication?

Nonviolent Communication is the integration of 4 things:
1. Consciousness: a set of principles that support living a life of compassion,
collaboration, courage, and authenticity
2. Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance
3. Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others
even in disagreement and how to move toward solutions that work for all
4. Means of influence: sharing “power with others” rather than using “power
over others”
