How do you practice NVC?
NVC endeavors to improve the connection and relationship between parties. The NVC framework entails empathetically listening and honestly expressing.
Building on those principles, NVC utilizes four language components:
- Observations: Without any judgment, observe what others are doing that you like or do not like.
- Feelings: Say how you feel when you observe this action.
- Needs: State the important needs that are connected to those feelings.
- Requests: Make a specific request that might help attend to those needs.
Using the language of NVC
- Ask for more information, creating an opportunity to listen and have an open discussion
- Focus on concrete data and facts, while open to listening and understanding
- Allow for different perspectives and work toward mutual understanding
