Al Weckert is an expert in Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in large companies and organizations. More than 1,000 trainings, 10,000 participants in the field of Nonviolent Communication, 6 book publications (e.g. "Nonviolent Communication for... Dummies"), online trainings and video productions for major publishers underline Al Weckert's expert status in the field of NVC.
The examples/role plays illustrate the theoretical content well and make it easy to transfer to your own professional practice. The working materials in postcard format deserve a special mention, as they are not only incredibly helpful and good food for thought, but also of particularly durable quality.
In his training, Al Weckert skillfully combines elements of mediation with non-violent communication.
His training is practice-oriented and he manages to keep the training modules dynamic and entertaining with his spontaneous manner and practical exercises. In his courses, Al Weckert always motivates with the question: "What have you learned from this?" In this way, he not only creates a transfer, but also encourages participants to look at difficult situations in mediation work and take away a learning success.
In the workshop I recently took with him, it shows his great skill and experience. I also like his books, of which I have read several. I am happy to recommend the books. They are clearly written and offer good theory and many nice exercises.
I enjoyed the weekend! I admit that it was an outstanding experience for me. I am far, very far from having enough confidence in any of the topics addressed to apply them, but just the sensitivity of learning how much is interconnected and that accuracy and the time that accuracy requires is golden, simply helped me muster up courage to clarify. I work in my field not on quantity but on quality and I felt crazy comfortable over the weekend because it was impossible to miss that you were also verve about bringing your passion for the cause to us. Your conviction that it was worth the effort was genuine. When you said that the mediator should take money and leave after the mediation failed, that was fibbing. That would not satisfy you, that is not you. 😄
You made us want to go deeper, you showed us that it is exhausting but can also bring a lot of satisfaction to look closely and then not stop but go on upright. Thank you, Al.
Al Weckert has enormous knowledge and experience, which he knows how to convey in an ingenious way: for example, he combines his GfK and mediation expertise with facial expression resonance, which adds depth to his seminars. Al Weckert attaches great importance to the implementation and application of what he has learned in practice after the training sessions, which I find particularly effective.
His way of imparting knowledge is intelligent, demanding and at the same time entertaining and likeable.
I enjoyed the seminar on NVC with Al Weckert very much. He combines his profound knowledge excellently with his personal experiences and thus enables the participants to better grasp the theory of what they have learned with practical examples. In addition, Al Weckert's friendly, open, and competent manner engages everyone and encourages them to actively participate in the seminar. You can feel that he not only teaches the NVC, but also lives it. I learned a lot and am looking forward to applying and deepening the topic of NVC.
The GfK seminar was didactically very well designed. Through the continuous work on case studies, I not only heard the expertise, but felt it and thus internalized it. It is as if I had learned a new language. Many thanks Al.
I have now attended my second seminar with Al. In the context of my work in psychiatry, the seminar content provides me with intensive support in my daily work with my patients. Al knows how to present the contents in an exciting way and is always lively. I am already looking forward to the next seminar with him.
Thank you Al.
A little more than 3 h ago I left the seminar "Nonviolent Communication" by Al Weckert. I am insanely exhausted, but more satisfied than ever. Al manages to make it clear through his authentic, light manner and the exercises that absolutely everyone is capable of being mindful with herself, her or his counterpart and with words. Theory and practice are usually very far apart - however, through exercises based on our own case studies, he showed us that NVC not only sounds good in theory, but also helps to create a level in every situation where both parties can talk to each other openly and constructively. The course opened doors for me - especially the door to myself. A side effect that I did not expect.
I can recommend this course from the bottom of my heart to anyone and everyone.
Thank you, Al!
I was fortunate to participate in the seminar series "Professional Communication in IT Management", which provides practical support for the topic of "Nonviolent Communication" in the context of complex, sometimes politically motivated conversations.
I participated in the seminar with several of my colleagues. This allowed us to make good use of real situations from our own everyday work and to work out very concrete improvements in our own communication. Al Weckert's many years of experience as a trainer offered enormous added value here. Along the way, we colleagues got to know each other better in a more personal, pleasant way.
In addition, the seminar helped me to develop more awareness and mindfulness on a personal level as well.
I can recommend Al Weckert and his seminars without reservation.
Al presented the contents in an extremely practical and clear manner and made them tangible and comprehensible through appropriate exercises. His materials and books are ideal for following up on the seminar content and for preparing your own mediation processes! With humor, fun and natural sharing of his extensive experience knowledge, he prepared three excellent days for me. All around recommendable!
I was able to learn the basics of mediation from Al Weckert as part of a series of seminars. I am very grateful to him for this clear and practical transfer of knowledge. Whether in my professional or private life, he has managed to bring about positive changes in communication.
I was already able to conduct my own mediation in our company.
Rating: Highly recommended!
I actually NEVER write reviews, but ALWAYS look at reviews when I buy/book something on the internet, I guess that's how most people do it, SORRY. Al Weckert definitely deserves a feedback. I am glad and very grateful to have attended a total of 13 days over 2 years of the basic and advanced seminar at MD BB, because as an appraiser I have challenging conversations every day. I can now handle difficult situations much better and consequently sleep better. THANK YOU. Al conveys scientific knowledge from Marshall Rosenberg, Dirk Eilert and many more in a practical and understandable way, thus raising my knowledge and at the same time my communication skills and abilities to an unimagined level. I am more balanced because I have become aware that often feelings and needs are not sufficiently recognized and named. This is something that needs to be changed. I am now a certified "empathy professional." His courses are worth the money, that I say from full CONVICTION, without profiting financially from this evaluation. CONTINUE SO
Especially effective and sustainable for me were the many practical exercises and also examples from Al Weckert's practice!
The NVC and mediation techniques became tangible and liveable for me and thus directly applicable in my job and everyday life!
Despite the online format and the group size, I had the impression that he succeeded in connecting well with the participants. I take a lot with me from the seminar blocks!
Thank you Al for the valuable three days of Mindful Communication. They brought me a lot in the connection with you and my group and helped me to learn even more about my deficits. I am signed up for the deepener, so I guess we will meet again :). I can only recommend to everyone who wants to do something FOR HIMSELF to get involved in the seminar and treat yourself to it.
Al Weckert can provide a different, relaxed and appreciative view of situations/conflicts with a lot of empathy and clear words. He conveys knowledge vividly through examples and interaction. It is simply fun and creates added value in your own contact and in contact with other people (in professional and private contexts). Dear Al, thank you very much for your impulses. Gladly again at any time :) Nicole
