Meaningful Breakfast Conversation: Nonviolent Communication as an effective tool to improve personal and professional relationships

Are you passionate about your work? When you have a great plan and then something doesn’t turn out how you expected, how do you react?  We’ve all experienced setbacks and challenging situations in the workplace which, despite our best intentions, we may struggle to resolve.

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a process developed by Marshall Rosenberg which can help manage through difficult scenarios, through compassionate self-awareness and empathic connection with others. From the bedroom to the boardroom, from the classroom to the war zone, Nonviolent Communication (NVC) provides easy to grasp, effective communication skills to get to the root of conflict, pain and violence peacefully.

This meaningful breakfast will consist of a brief introduction to Nonviolent Communication and a real-life demonstration of how it can lead to more authentic connection in the workplace, enabling conflict resolution and collaboration. We will then open up the conversation with the participants.

Attendees are invited to learn more about NVC in preparation for the event by reading the following factsheet or accessing additional learning resources here

 

About the speakers – David Laou, Senovio Shish & Jay Last

He has broad interests, is an investment professional and business analyst (CFA L3 and CBAP candidate), passionate about development, sustainability and effective altruism. Now David wishes to bring together compassionate practice and communication, with impact in business and personal lives.

Senovio discovered NVC in 2018 while searching for ways to engage in productive dialogue on racism and politics in the U.S.  Born and raised in North America, he traces his roots to the indigenous Maya in the area now known as Belize, as well as to Northern Europe.  He holds a degree in Environmental Science from Harvard and an MBA from MIT and has worked in banking and management consulting for more than ten years.  He is a regular practitioner and facilitator of NVC within NVC Geneva practice group and is committed to nurturing a culture of nonviolence and sustainability, in personal relationships and within communities and organizations.

Jay has been practicing NVC since 2017 while searching for solutions to life’s challenges. Through regular practice at NVC Geneva’s events and integration of the techniques into daily life, he has an increasing harmony with others and understanding of himself. As a practice group facilitator and active association member he fulfills a desire to introduce the benefits he appreciates from NVC to other people. A mechanical design engineer with extensive project management experience, as well as a passion for 3D printing, Jay brings innovation and new technologies to improve industrial production. He finds that integrating emotional intelligence into traditionally analytical workplaces is challenging but rewarding.
