Two day Immersion in Nonviolent Communication for Coaches

18-19 May 2020, RDS, Dublin

Reserve your place

Glenn Treacy and Anna Rowan will present a two day experiential immersion into Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication framework. We will be working with a group of up to sixteen to enhance the experiential aspects and maximise the learning. Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is currently enjoying a resurgence in the field of coaching and training as Rosenberg’s approach is increasingly applied in organisations and used as primary training for coaches in Europe, particularly in Northern Europe.

The framework can be described as a way of being very honest, without any criticism, insults, or put-downs, and without any intellectual diagnosis implying wrongness.

NVC emphasises the power of empathy, self-awareness, authenticity and collaboration in the workplace and in life. This is achieved by introducing ‘universal human needs’ as a key component of our communication along with thoughts and feelings.  NVC demonstrates the relationship and connections between these three layers of our communication and consciousness.

NVC provides a holistic and integrated approach to communication that can be applied at the individual, team and organisational level by coaches. Organisations with effective communication are 3.5 times more likely to outperform their peers according to the most recent Towers Watson Change and Communication ROI report.

When Satya Nadella became Microsoft CEO in February 2014, he urged his senior leadership team to read “Nonviolent Communication” by Marshall Rosenberg, claiming it was the single most important book they could read as a Microsoft employee. Since becoming CEO, Microsoft has added in excess of $1 trillion in market value.


This workshop has a capacity for 16 people in order to maximise the learning experience and enhance the experience.

Day 1 will introduce the model and the key concepts by experiential structures in dyads and triads and using a minimum of theory. NVC represents a paradigm shift in communication so experiencing the effect of this approach is key.

Day 2 will concentrate on applications in the coaching field. We will show how you can empower your coaching and use NVC to help your coachees.


On completion of the training you will be able to help your coachees:

  • Handle difficult conversations with skill
  • Give direct and honest feedback in a way that brings about natural changes in behaviour
  • Develop an understanding of the type of communication that brings about collaboration and co-operation
  • Understand the patterns of their conflict and how to avoid them
  • Use self empathy to avoid your “buttons” getting pressed in challenging situations
  • Understand how respectfully listening with empathy makes others feel truly heard and allows them to hear the true concerns that often lie behind others words

On 9 June 2020, Glenn and Anna will host a two hour group video conference call for feedback and reflection on the application of NVC in practice.

Location: The Conference Room, RDS Club, Ballsbridge, Dublin

Date: 18-19 May  2020

Cost: (including lunch) €495.00 / €450.00 Early bird booking before 17 April 2020

Exploring the deep hunger for safety

Releasing the power of protective structures using Nonviolent Communication

Saturday, November 17th, 2018, 10 am to 5 pm
the Cellar, Blackrock, Dublin

Glenn Treacy and Saskia Kooijman (Netherlands), NVC trainers, will give a workshop on aspects of safety and protective structures. In this workshop, you will be invited to look at your deeper core feelings and needs. These deeper aspects often give rise to our protective structures and our emotions provide the energy to hold these in place.

We will present the neuroscience behind our fear response and use safe and novel exercises to experience our limbic system that is responsible for building our protective structures.  With exercises, we will help you to connect with your inner protectors that you may experience as pain in day to day life.

Through this workshop, you will get more insight into these structures and how they affect your life on a daily basis. Inspired by the work of Robert Gonzales, we will guide you to connect with your feelings underneath your protective structures and show a way towards empowerment and connection with your essential self. Some experience of NVC is useful but not essential.

Location: 23 Rock Hill, Blackrock, County Dublin

Date: Saturday, November 17th, 2018, 10 am to 5 pm
