What is Compassionate Communication?
The US-American Psychologist Dr. Marshall Rosenberg (* 6 Oct. 1934, † 7 Feb 2015) developed a simple, yet powerful four step process based on three pillars to help people resolve conflicts and better connect with each other. He calls it Nonviolent Communication (NVC) or Compassionate Communication. It has been spread across the world since the 1980’s and the corresponding book “Non-violent communication” is available in many languages, also in Chinese (非暴力沟通).
The purpose of compassionate communication is to enable us to give one another from the heart by strengthening our connection through true empathy.
People applying this approach meet their needs much more effectively while avoiding or resolving conflicts e.g. with colleagues or direct reports at work, in relationships with partners or friends or between parents and children.
Communication is a basic human activity that is acquired throughout life but unfortunately not always in the most effective way. If we work on becoming more compassionate in our way of communicating with each other, our lives can be much more fulfilling and peaceful.
Compassionate Communication can save marriages, help parents raise their children in a more constructive way, and help schools as well as other institutions or companies to function better.
In summary Compassionate Communication helps building up a non-judgmental attitude of mutual respect that we theoretically all know is important but much too often fail to realize in practice.
