Nonviolent Communication™ Skills for Personal Development and Growth

“As we learn to speak from the heart we are changing the habits of a lifetime.”

- Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.

By using Nonviolent Communication skills for personal development and growth, you can live an empowered life free of self-criticism and debilitating behaviors. Nonviolent Communication skills for development and growth can help you transform your internal dialogue, while at the same time learning to express your needs and feelings clearly and non-judgmentally.

The self-healing you will experience when you undertake personal development and growth will allow you to let go of past pains and begin to live deliberately toward your goals. Unfortunately, many of us still hold on to pain and communication difficulties of the past, to the detriment of our present and future. As a result, we spend our daily lives caught up in a vicious cycle of destructive self-talk, toxic guilt, and traumatic emotional stress. When we cling to the guilt and shame that has perhaps become comfortable and familiar to us, our personal relationships, professional lives, and general everyday existence can begin to feel burdensome.

By using Nonviolent Communication skills for personal development and growth, we gain tools to identify and heal past pains that are presently holding us back from living a life of fulfillment and peace. This includes transforming thought patterns and subsequent behaviors, which disrupt our day-to-day life and lead to more pain.

Areas of Personal Growth and Development

With the help of Nonviolent Communication, you can work on many important areas of personal growth and development. By looking inward to uncover the blockages of consciousness in the forms of feelings resulting from unfulfilled needs, we can discern why we feel pain, hurt, anger, despair, or other negative emotions…. and become clear that these are never the result of anyone else’s thoughts, feelings, or words about us. Some of the areas of personal growth and development Nonviolent Communication methods can help you work on include:

  • Transforming negative thoughts and behaviors into personal empowerment
  • Actively healing old emotional wounds that still affect internal dialogue
  • Learning healthy internal communication methods
  • Cultivating empathy and compassion in the most trying situations
  • Expressing yourself and getting your needs met without demands or coercion

Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg’s Self Improvement Advice

Dr Marshall B. Rosenberg dedicated his life to providing effective self improvement advice by helping people of all walks of life and unique life situations heal themselves with Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Dr. Rosenberg’s belief that we should not do anything in our lives that is not “play” has provided clarity and inspiration to generations of people worldwide. Many of these people are dedicated to being the best version of themselves because they are not afraid to let their true self shine for the entire world to see. Dr. Marshall B. Rosenberg’s NVC self-improvement advice is wonderful in part because it is so simple, as well as practical in our everyday lives:

“When we sense ourselves being defensive or unable to empathize, we need to (a) stop, breathe, give ourselves empathy, (b) express nonviolently, or (c) take time out.”

- Marshall B. Rosenberg, Ph.D.
