What will you learn?


During the nine-days’ training Needs-based Coaching, you will learn a series of coaching techniques based on the understanding of how needs are the underlying motivation for all our actions. The training is fully interactive. You will experience step by step your own deeper longings and how to allow them to point the direction in your life, how to face your vulnerability and fear, and how to compose action steps that are significant and doable. The main focus is, through theory and exercises, that you will learn how to support others on this path.

Coaching is a structured conversation where the coach through curious questions supports the client’s self-connection and deeper sense of self. From this state, decisions become stronger and more robust. Supporting the client to come into alignment with her or his deeper values is the main focus.

We use the terms ‘coach’ and ‘client’, and this covers other kinds of helping relationships, such as parenting, leading teams from a coaching perspective and being a health professional wanting to empower your patients to become co-responsible for their own health.

The training will expose you to:

  • Basic coaching tools, such as empowering questions, curiosity, presence, interruptions, metaphors, intuition and much more.
  • Five different pathways that you can use in support of the client’s coming to alignment with their own feelings and needs.
  • Discussions and practices about how to support the client and to stay self-centered while you as the coach also allow transformation to happen for yourself.

Who is it for?

This training is dedicated to people who have already met and got familiar with Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and now want to also take it into their professional lives. Even though NVC is the underlying foundation for Needs-Based Coaching, the training will focus on coaching skills rather than NVC. You will learn how to integrate NVC-consciousness when  having the position of coach, teacher, health provider, parent or manager and have a desire to empower your counterpart.

If you are inspired by NVC but haven’t been trained in it yet, we encourage you to connect with us and we will happily send you some reading suggestions as well as suggestions for basic NVC workshops in your area that you can choose to attend prior to this training.

If you are already trained as a coach and curious about the needs-based approach, this workshop may provide you with a bunch of new  tools.
