When we apply and practice NVC over a number of months in an organization, it can create group norms that make learning go deep faster. These new norms can impact people's interactions with others both inside and outside of work.

This may create a ripple effect of interest in applying NVC across different domains in life.
Sitting With Not Knowing: Embracing the Heart of Nonviolent Communication
Sitting with not knowing is an NVC skill because its the opposite of reactivity. In our haste to find relief from the discomfort of not knowing, we often become defensive, jump to conclusions, and blame and criticize others.

NVC provides a way forward to enter into a space of wonder, possibility, and creativity.
