"One of [Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft]’s first acts after becoming CEO...was to ask the company’s top executives to read Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication, a treatise on empathic collaboration."

Fast Company Magazine

"To spread his ethos he's been pointing employees to Nonviolent Communication, a book that urges respectful listening instead of the classic Microsoft rejoinder: 'That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard!'"

What is Violent Communication? If “violent” means acting in ways that result in hurt or harm, then much of how we communicate—judging others, bullying, having racial bias, blaming, finger pointing, discriminating, speaking without listening, criticizing others or ourselves, name-calling, reacting when angry, using political rhetoric, being defensive or judging who’s “good/bad” or what’s “right/wrong” with people—could indeed be called “violent communication.” 

What is Nonviolent Communication? Nonviolent Communication is the integration of 4 things: 

  • Consciousness: a set of principles that support living a life of empathy, care, courage, and authenticity
  • Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance
  • 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
  • Means of influence: sharing “power with others” rather than using “power over others” 

Nonviolent Communication serves our desire to do three things:

  1. Increase our ability to live with choice, meaning, and connection
  2. Connect empathically with self and others to have more satisfying relationships
  3. Sharing of resources so everyone is able to benefit

Rosenberg, PhDEndorsed by Arun Gandhi, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, John Gray, Jack Canfield, Tony Robbins, Dr. Thomas Gordon, Riane Eisler, and others
