Nelle Moffett is an extraordinary listener. She has been coaching me for about a year, and I have gained countless valuable insights through her coaching with me. What I appreciate most is that her goal is not to impose her wisdom upon me, but to draw out my own wisdom. Whatever I am wrestling with, she gives me the invitation and then the space to discern what vision I am trying to articulate or what obstacles are in my way. Once she has guided me to greater clarity on my own thinking, then she offers ideas and advice, and asks if they make sense. Almost inevitably, they are right on target, and when they aren’t quite right, I am free to say so, and she listens some more. Often, her listening allows me to tweak the suggestions so that they fit just right. I imagine that anyone, no matter what their wants or needs, would benefit from working Nelle, because of her style of coaching. She’s not offering a set of prescriptions; she’s offering to help you mine your own wisdom. Thank you, Nelle, for helping me so much!
As a new director of a non-profit organization, I found Nelle to be most perceptive in her understanding of my situation and suggested practices. Her analysis of my issues and the program suggestions she made were right on. With her support, I became more adept at making clear requests and holding distinct boundaries, among other skills.
Nelle & Rick facilitated classes on Nonviolent Communication for both staff and participants of Helping Hands Re-Entry, a program for homeless and people with addictions. Many of our people do not have the skills to express their needs in an acceptable manner. They were shown how to create a connection with someone and find common ground… Many situations could be prevented from escalating by using NVC. Read More…
I can’t say enough positive things about Nelle and her wonderful coaching skills. My entire world view changed for the better as a result of Nelle’s wisdom and insight into the nature of what it means to be a happy and loving human being. That was indeed a pivotal time in my life.
One of my lifetime unforgettable experiences was that I had a chance to attend the group coaching telephone meetings taught by Rick and Nelle. I participated in the meetings for over three years. Their coaching helped me a lot in my communication with people around me including my communication at work a lot. It also improved my conference call skills tremendously. Also Rick and Nelle’s coaching helped me to improve my relationship with my two rebellious sons. Our relationships are much improved; they are now back in my life and close to me including my lovely new wife as well!
I have very high regard for Nelle Moffett as a person and as a coach. Nelle is compassionate and understanding. I enjoyed that Nelle was able to relate to my goals, my difficulties and my achievements equally. She listened patiently to me and honored my perspective. Nelle worked with me to create a positive plan of action for achieving my goals. She shared with me practical strategies and attitudes that she has found beneficial in her own life experience. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to work with Nelle. I always felt positive after our sessions.
Nelle is very skilled. She is very good with Nonviolent Communication and Focusing. Nelle is a great listener and has a lot of compassion.
Your sharing of the concepts of NVC and giving of the opportunity to practice them in a safe, nurturing environment has made me feel hopeful that I too can learn to communicate in such a compassionate manner AND inspired to keep trying! For this, I am truly grateful!
Nelle and Rick—thank you for taking time to teach us a new way of thinking and resolving conflict. I am so happy that I got to be part of it and so sad I had to miss classes for work. I truly hope to do these classes again, I still have a lot to learn.
I am grateful to Nelle and Rick for introducing me to NVC* and for their wise, patient, and insightful guidance as I try to learn and practice it. I have noticed that my skills for creating loving connections at home and work have improved. Nelle and Rick are the perfect coaches for any personal or professional situation where understanding, connection and joy are desired. They are down-to-earth, realistic and inspiring. They practice what they teach. Our community is fortunate to have Nelle and Rick available as resources for individuals, families and groups of all kinds.
