Consider this scenario: After a meeting lasting most of the morning, you return to the discussion forum. In the rough and tumble of a lively debate, one participant has posted a message that offends many of your deeply held religious beliefs. You also think that the message is likely to cause deep offence to many other participants. Using NVC methodology as described in the article above write a post in this forum addressed to the offending participant.
Write the actual post using NCV as we want to see how you phrase it.
- Describe your observation (instead of making a judgement).
- Identify your feeling (which is different from sharing your thoughts).
- Explain the reason for your feeling in terms of your needs (there are always very specific needs behind feelings).
- State your request.
