Anna Groves is recognised as one of New Zealand's most experienced facilitators of compassionate communication. She was certified in 2009 as a Nonviolent Communication
(NVC) trainer, and provides individual coaching for new trainers both nationally and internationally. Founded by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg, PhD, NVC provides a set of practical and accessible skills, which can be used to communicate more effectively with others in both business and life.
Deep listening underlies all of Anna's communication. Perceptive, pragmatic and candid, Anna can offer timely insights and facilitate a shared understanding when others may be inclined to withdraw. She is well equipped to support connection when conflict is particularly difficult or challenging, and can offer skills to clarify situations, support people to make sustainable changes. Her ability to empathise underlies a potent emotional intelligence that enables Anna to connect with people from all walks of life.
