Are you an NVC trainer who wants to thrive by making the world of organizations more wonderful? 

Would you like to work with clients who adore you and who you adore

What if you could experience more time and money freedom with your family, friends and community while working in integrity with the needs you value? 

Join Marie Miyashiro, trainer, author and international organizational consultant, for the first-ever, step-by-step training in how to: 1) grow your NVC business AND; 2) identify and work with the invisible “universal organizational needs” that represent the living energy of organizations.

This one-of-a-kind program is the foundation of the Giraffe Business School that Marie developed to help NVC trainers thrive in how they bring NVC to NGOs, schools/universities, government agencies and corporations.

You will dive deep into the Integrated Clarity™ process that Marie developed and introduced in her book The Empathy Factor. You will benefit from the 17 years of field-tested success with client feedback over 15 years. This is a needs-based approach combining Human Needs with Universal Organizational Needs (a new concept Marie developed and successfully applied with organizations in over 60 countries). In this way, your NVC business can grow in integrity with your needs, become more profitable and joyful for you and lead to sustainable cultural change for your clients.

Additionally, a live session with Marie supports your integration of the multiple hours of online, self-paced content developed by Marie specifically for this course. 


This course is for NVC trainers and facilitators who:

  • would like to bring NVC to organizations in a sustainable, impactful and effective way;
  • would like to shift from being an empathy trainer to being an empathy consultant;
  • are eager to learn more about the invisible “We” of organizations and better understand their needs;
  • are already sharing NVC in organizations or plan to start doing it. 


What are the learning outcomes?

1) You will start by using the Integrated Clarity™ process on your own NVC business (or practice) to have more clarity and ensure that your business aligns with your needs while being extremely profitable. Clarity helps you attract your ideal clients and accelerate your strategic success.  

2) Then you will learn how to bring this lens of Organizational Needs to your work with your clients. This is a game changer because it moves you from being an empathy trainer to an empathy consultant. Consultants bring added value to their clients who are willing to pay a premium for this. This process is an effective shortcut for bringing an organization development consultant mindset into your NVC training. It helps you to see and work with the invisible “We” of the team or organization.

3) SPECIAL BONUS AVAILABLE ONLY HERE:  The Giraffe Business School’s “8 Steps to High-Performing Agile Teams and Psychological Safety.” Marie will share and outline with you this proprietary process for working with clients from the first meeting to contract renewal. Refined over Marie’s decades of real-world work with a variety of clients from NGOs and universities to multinational corporations, this step-by-step flow leads to multiyear, repeat clients for real Cultural Change. This process is also working for Certified NVC trainers who are being coached and trained by Marie.


An interactive format
