Nonviolent Communication (NVC): sharing my own notes and view of the book

“Nonviolent Communication: a language of life” cover, 3rd edition (Marshal B. Rosenberg, PhD)

Chapter 1: Giving from the Heart

Chapter 2: Communication that blocks compassion

Chapter 3: Observing without Evaluating, Chapter 4: Identifying and Expressing Feelings, Chapter 5: Taking a responsibility for our feelings AND Chapter 6: Requesting that which would enrich life

Chapter 7: Receiving Empathically AND Chapter 8: The Power of Empathy

Chapter 9: Connecting compassionately with ourselves

  • One is that its content made me remember the book “Mindset: the new psychology of success” by Carol Dweck, related to the fixed and growth mindset, since we tend to judge ourselves for some mistakes, but we always forget that we never stop learning;
  • And two is about translating “have to” to “choose to”. Here, Marshal proposes a step by step process to do our day to day things in a more positive way. When we translate an obligation (have to) to the reason we are doing that (with the “choose to”), we connect to the why and turn that thing more positive. Of course, it is not a straightforward process, but I honestly tried to do it with some of my day to day tasks and it seems working so far.

Chapter 14: Expressing appreciation in nonviolent communication
