Non-violent communication will help you communicate with your coworkers in a manner that enables productivity and helps you understand how their unmet needs might lead to negative interactions. Successful communication is a huge part of a project’s success – everyone on the team can benefit from NVC. Non-violent Communication is based on the idea that all human beings have the capacity for compassion and only resort to violence or behavior that harms others when they don’t recognize more effective strategies for meeting their needs.

Unspoken expectations, ignored feelings, and accusatory or aggressive language can bring an otherwise productive team to a halt.
