True Leadership ~
Building Human Connection and Trust
... Even in Conflict!

Collaboration Skills
for Purpose-Driven
Change Makers

We know that as a Leader, who we are, and what we say, matters.

Human interaction by human interaction, we are either consciously building teams of Trust, Alignment, Safety and Engagement...  or we are unconsciously creating something else.

Purposefully creating environments where we are enlivened to work, matters. It makes a difference in achieving the best with who we work with, in building engagement and trust, and most importantly to enrich life for everyone!

But to do this, we need to have the skills and self-awareness to say important and difficult things with connection and non-judgment.   We need to be able to really hear each other - especially when things are said in hard-to-hear ways... or worse, when they are not being said at all!

Authentic Communication* creates this Human Connection.  It is for the New Generation of Leaders who are called to elevate themselves, and their sphere of influence, by cultivating the most overlooked, yet vital, element...

Human Connection and Trust - even in Conflict.

It takes Genuinely Powerful and Self-Connected Leaders to create environments where people thrive and feel safe.

The next generation of leaders know how imperative these Human Connection Skills are.  The ability to be truly Present and hear another human being whilst maintaining their own self-connection.  Actively encouraging critical conversations and feeling confident to walk into potential conflict and meet it with inner clarity and openness - seeing it for the opportunity it is.  They have the practical know-how to identify and shift whatever current structures are NOT regenerative for everyone, and they know how to create new ones that do.

Hi! I'm Shari Elle

For the past 23 years I have taught and supported more than 10,000 people in Authentic Communication (based on NVC) and have walked beside about 800 people in long term, close-up journey's to give them the life-changing connection skills that have revolutionised their lives.

I have walked beside business owners and leaders of large organisations, as well as leaders in social change, and supported them to transform their businesses, organisations, movements and their family lives.

Because of my experience and the insight of who I am, I can see and assist with ‘the piece' that will shift the dial in whatever challenges the organisation is facing.  Ironically, often the same issues will often also be appearing in some form at home.

I see and love people beyond their roles, masks and coping mechanisms.  I’m not afraid to say things straight with love and respect.  It doesn’t feel courageous for me to do so.  It is who I am and it is my greatest joy to call forward leaders who are here to make a difference.

What we say, and what we convey IS powerful.

Our words, and the way in which we hear others, affects the level of trust and conflict within the environments we influence.  The awareness and intentionality in how you communicate matters!

By learning this simple 4 Step Process of Authentic Communication*, you can learn how to create environments of deep understanding and real connection… without backing down, chasing, "making wrong", or hiding who you really are.  You cultivate trust and integrity in the teams you lead, and within yourself.

Every person IS a leader and has way more power than they ever imagined within their circle of influence and beyond.

These transformational programs have been specifically designed to expand your professional practices with NVC... and will also radically transform all of your relationships...

*Authentic Communication is based on the principles of Nonviolent Communication, NVC, by Dr Marshall Rosenberg.

This time proven process of Nonviolent Communication, (named from alignment with Ghandi and Martin Luther King) is a world famous methodology to:

> Create exceptional personal and professional relationships
> Ask for compassionate understanding for ourselves
> Hear behind the way something is being said to hear what is really meant
> Prevent and resolve misunderstandings and conflict
> Speak authentically, in a way that leads to harmony
> Create willingness without coercion

These 4 simple steps within NVC help you let go of habits of blame, criticism, submission, aggression and “fixed thinking” which make it difficult to connect with those we care about. You really can build happy and powerful relationships.
