Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life

Marshall B. Rosenberg
Do you hunger for skills to improve the quality of your relationships, to deepen your sense of personal empowerment or to simply communicate more effectively? Unfortunately, for centuries our culture has taught us to think and speak in ways that can actually perpetuate conflict, internal pain and even violence. Nonviolent Communication partners practical skills with a powerful consciousness and vocabulary to help you get what you want peacefully. In this internationally acclaimed text, Marshall Rosenberg offers insightful stories, anecdotes, practical exercises and role-plays that will dramatically change your approach to communication for the better. Discover how the language you use can strengthen your relationships, build trust, prevent conflicts and heal pain. Revolutionary, yet simple, Nonviolent Communication offers you the most effective tools to reduce violence and create peace in your life—one interaction at a time.

I will undoubtedly keep coming back to and re-reading this book, on my own as well as with my local NVC study group. However, I want to go off on my own to explore more updated versions of this idea, such as compassionate communication and other similar tools. That said, this book lays the foundation for doing what Covey said so long ago in his [b:The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change|36072|The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Powerful Lessons in Personal Change|Stephen R. Covey||6277] -seek first to understand. That seeems to be the basis of all empathy, which is what we all must work to learn and apply, continually.
