  12. Feelings • Most people are raised to think or wonder: “What is it that others think is right for me to say and do?” • People tend to express their feelings through opinions rather than stating how we really feel. • Our feelings are a result of how we choose to receive others and based on our own needs and expectations.

  13. Needs • Feelings are an indicator of needs Feelings Needs

  14. Feelings and Needs “The more directly we can connect our feelings to our needs, the easier it is for others to respond compassionately.” Marshall B. Rosenberg Ph.D.

  17. Using Positive Action Language • Stop spending so much time at work… • I don’t know what I want… The clearer you are about what it is you want, the more likely it is that you will get it. Marshall Rosenberg

  18. Requests VS Demands • We can tell whether it was a request or a demand by observing behavior when the answer is NO • Criticizes or Judges, Blames, Guilt Trip • Coercive, manipulative, and the less we enjoy being around you • The Magic Words (Would you be willing) When a person hears a demand from us, they see two options: to submit or to rebel. Marshall Rosenberg
