Start Fostering Healthy Communication

NCD changes how you perceive and respond to situations where you’re feeling insecure, defensive, or vulnerable. It’s human nature to try to continue to dialogue in these situations, but that leads to the majority of conflict between people and damages relationships.

In this 3-session workshop, you’ll learn how to use NCD to proactively manage yourself instead of allowing vulnerability, emotions, and unhealthy conflict to manage you.
It blew my mind how complicated we make things and how simple it really can be when we just strip everything away and get down to the facts. EVERYONE needs this. Every manager, leader, parent, teacher, coach, counselor, etc... basically, anyone who communicates with others needs to take [Navigating Challenging Dialogue].

Act now to make your interactions less stressful and more productive.

The 4-step NCD process has helped hundreds of individuals and organizations to clearly communicate in ways that create connections, build bridges, and get results.
