Dangerous Assumptions Program

With Kathy Ziola

6 Thursdays, Jan 13 - Feb 17, 6:00pm to 8:00pm MST

At the end of your rope?

Making assumptions can get us into trouble! This course will focus on three key assumptions we make in relating that are dangerous to connection and harmony. Using the model of Nonviolent Communication/Compassionate Communication and unique inquiry processes, you will learn how to shift out of relating from assumptions into relating in ways that create real understanding.

  • Tired of going round and round with misunderstandings?
  • Weary of having to be right?
  • Dreading the next power struggle?
  • Longing for clarity and authenticity?

  • Week 1- Impact of Assumptions on Relationships
  • Week 2 - How to Shift Assumption to Real Understanding
  • Week 3 - I am Right, and You are So Wrong!
  • Week 4 - I Know What Your Intentions are, and They are Not Good!
  • Week 5 -Of Course You Know What I mean, and I know what you mean!
  • Week 6 - Assumption Free Communication

Using the skills and principles of Nonviolent/Compassionate Communication and unique inquiry along with practice and application we will explore and transform assumptions that are dangerous to the health of relationships and compassionate connection.

Having some previous NVC training is helpful.
