In 1999 Kathy chose to move her work focus in a new direction and she became executive director of an organization mentoring troubled teens. In order to better support the youth and families served by the organization, Kathy searched for a communication tool to build and sustain respectful relationships based on trust. In 2000 she was ecstatic when she discovered Compassionate Communication and recognized its power to transform lives. She began training with Marshall Rosenberg and has since dedicated herself to living and sharing the principles of NVC. She now supports others in the practical day-to-day learning and application of the process.
Drawing on her prior management experience, Kathy also designs and delivers trainings to diverse organizations and businesses. Compassionate (Nonviolent) Communication (NVC) provides a simple yet effective framework to ask for what we want with clarity and authenticity. By facilitating the practice of Compassionate Communication in work environments, Kathy has taught individuals, executives and business leaders to connect in ways that unify and create effective work teams.
Kathy facilitates quarterly courses as well as workshops for individuals new to NVC. For more than 15 years she has led practice groups for those wanting to deepen their practice of NVC through her ongoing coaching and support in a small group environment. Whether you are stuck in a disconnecting communication pattern within your family or are feeling challenged to express yourself with clarity and honesty in your workplace, learn how to apply this powerful tool.
