Using Candy to Demonstrate a Point!!

For my blog today, I want to share with you a video of me talking about my work and how I integrate Nonviolent Communication into my work. (This is Part 1. You can go to youtube to watch Part 2 and I will be posting it here as well at a later date.)


The video explains the process I rely on in my work as a Collaborative Attorney, Mediator and Coach. In case you are wondering, no, the candy was not put there as a prop for me, it was just there and I used it as an opportunity for demonstrating a point!

If you are interested in learning this approach so you can apply it yourself in your life or work, please go to to register for my upcoming Live Workshop in Bellingham, WA.

If you are unable to attend in Bellingham but are interested in participating either in a live workshop or teleseminar, please send me a note at and let me know. I’d love to support you.

Thanks and, as always, looking forward to hearing your feedback. Please post comments below.

In support and service ~
