Marshall Rosenberg tried to fix our ability to understand each other. He developed this system called Non-Violent Communication (NVC), which he used in a ton of different conflict situations, ranging from couples therapy to negotiating peace between warring states. There are a bunch of ways to approach and describe NVC, but today I’m going to talk about it like a system or a strategy that you can use and adapt as part of your “emotional toolbox”.
