"Say What?!"

Compassionate Communication for Interpreters


Interpreters are professional communicators, we get paid to use language in ways that are clear and understandable. And we are rock stars at that most of the time!

But sometimes trying to communicate with our boss, referral agency, clients, and team interpreters just doesn’t go as smoothly. In this workshop we will explore the fundamentals of Non Violent Communication (NVC), a tool to help you communicate your needs effectively in a professional, connected way that will result in more understanding, more ease, less conflict, and ultimately: everyone getting their needs met!
