Taking Action

Join the world-wide movement supporting Conscious Eating. Here are a few of the ways you can get involved.

Making Collaboration Real. Newspaper articles and research studies emphasize the importance of a collaborative, empathic workplace environment. Even when committed to creating such a collaborative environment, many people struggle with the actual implementation. Using the principles of Nonviolent Communication, the Making Collaboration Real program provides the “how” to this emerging call to rehumanize the way companies and organizations do business.
