In today's look at non violent communication, we've made it to Chapter 6 in the Rosenberg book. You'll hear me discussing how I'm playing with making requests in clear, concrete action-oriented language... and, of course, how this relates to my living room. :-) To share comments, questions, or your own experiences, please visit my blog: Non Violent Communication podcast day 17 If you liked this, chances are good that you know someone else who might enjoy it.

In today's look at non violent communication, I'm reporting on how things are going with using the phrase "I feel [insert feeling], because I [insert need]." Magical. Really, I'm finding this hugely helpful. There is also a little discussion about the fact that many of us lose sight of the fact that we have needs in the first place -- or at least I sometimes work with people who feel that way and feel that way myself at times.

Today's episode launches us into Chapter 5 of Rosenberg's book, and we're talking about taking responsibility for our feelings. Initially, I'm playing around with a specific phrase and noticing my first reaction (discomfort) and what happens later. If you like this, chances are good you know someone else who might like it, too. Be sure to use email, twitter, facebook, or another method to share this with them. It may be exactly the magic fairy dust they need to brighten their day, and it only takes a minute.

Today, in Day 13, we're wrapping up the discussion of "identifying and expressing feelings" from Chapter 4 of Rosenberg's book. Learn about my own challenges with using the phrase "I feel", when I'm doing a self-check, and why my emotional vocabulary appears to be stuck at first grade level. Hope you'll join me, and let me know your thoughts at my blog. http://www.lizmcgowen.com/non-violent-communication-podcast/NVC-Podcast-Day-13-Yes-my-emotional-vocabulary-is-at-first-grade-level
Today is an extension of Day 11, because I didn't want to leave listeners hanging. I go into connecting with people at a deeper level, bringing us around to the importance of identifying and observing rather than labeling someone with a feeling. Hope you'll find it helpful. If you'd like to start using NVC in your own life, or start some other new practice, you'll find lots of support at my blog. There's The Lemon Pie Group with support for starting something new, as well as The Elephant Manifesto to help you get started.

Today's episode of the Non Violent Communication podcast focuses on Chapter 4 in Rosenberg's book, "Identifying and Expressing Feelings." I spend quite a bit of time talking about the professions in which people don't show much emotion, why that often takes place, and what to do when you decide not to follow the crowd in this behavior. I hope you'll join me. For comments and other goodies visit my blog: http://www.lizmcgowen.com/non-violent-communication-podcast/nvc-podcast-day-11-showing-emotion/
Today I'm talking a bit more about "observation without evaluation". I've run across about 4 words that are often used in our family when we evaluate rather than observe. Find out what these are (and how it all relates to cookies!). Please leave comments and questions at the blog: http://www.lizmcgowen.com/non-violent-communication-podcast/nvc-podcast-day-10-words-of-evaluation/
On today's episode, I talk about my experiment of trying to see how many times I actually make an evaluation rather than sticking to an observation. (Hint: I do it, a lot). You'll hear about my 4-year-old and what happened last night, as well as my vow to practice a bit of non violent communication toward myself. Questions, comments, and feedback are welcome at the blog: http://www.lizmcgowen.com/non-violent-communication-podcast/nvc-podcast-day-9-tales-of-observing-without-evaluating
It's day 8 of the non violent communication podcast, and we've made it to chapter 3 in the book (Nonviolent Communication by Marshall B. Rosenberg). Today's topic is "observing without evaluating", a sticky issue indeed. Feel free to comment on the blog, http://www.lizmcgowen.com/non-violent-communication-podcast/day-8-nvc-podcast-observing-without-evaluating/
Wow, 7 entire episodes. It feels really great to get this out there. Today I'm talking bout the last couple of aspects of communication that blocks compassion, specifically, communicating our desires as demands. You'll learn about my day -- of jury duty -- as well as one final way we block compassionate communication that Rosenberg doesn't talk about. Feel free to leave comments and questions on the blog: http://www.lizmcgowen.com/non-violent-communication-podcast/nvc-podcast-day-7-communicating-our-desires-as-demands/
Today we're talking about "denial of responsibility". A challenge for you: how many times throughout the day do you use the phrase "I have to". Feel free to report your results at the blog: http://www.lizmcgowen.com
Today we're talking more about communication that blocks compassion, specifically about "comparison". You'll hear my thoughts on this and a couple of quick stories. Feel free to comment at the blog, which is at http://www.lizmcgowen.com
Today is Day 4 of the non violent communication podcast, and we're talking about communication that blocks compassion. Specifically, about moralistic judgments. This is a point in the book where I always struggle a bit. I'll give you a couple of very specific examples of moralistic judgments that occur to me, and why these can be hugely problematic when used. Hope you'll listen... and please leave any comments at the blog post http://www.lizmcgowen.com/non-violent-communication-podcast/communication-that-blocks-compassion-moralistic-judgments
Today we discuss what prevents us from communicating from the heart. What are the things that get in the way? You'll hear two very real examples from my own life, which I'm hoping the next days and weeks of my intentional practice of non violent communication will help me resolve.
