Saturday 8th August 2.00pm - 5.00pm
Jo is an experienced workshop leader, mediator and personal coach. She is a Certified Trainer in Nonviolent Communication – a powerful process for enabling people to enter into dialogue with one another, even in a conflictual situation when emotions are running high. Her website (www.jo-mchale.com) offers a rich array of resources offering insights into effective ways of communicating in ways that promote connection and lead to mutually satisfying outcomes.
Despite our best intentions, most of us are easily triggered into exasperation, upset, irritation or worse. And when we are triggered, we react. The primitive part of our brain takes over and we resort to fight, flight or freeze. Rational thought deserts us. We experience conflict as deeply painful and hurtful, and from that state of mind, we speak or act in ways that we regret later.
In the workshop, we will explore the thinking patterns that send us into that unhelpful state and delve into the alternatives that Nonviolent Communication offers us. We will explore how we can access our compassionate nature even when we’re under pressure, and communicate in ways that enrich – rather than diminish – our lives.
