Webinar: Giving and receiving gratitude in a juicy and meaningful way

Note: Webinar også på norsk – se nedenfor. It is that time of year again, and whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you will probably be faced with gratitude – either being grateful or receiving thanks. Do you think it can get a bit “stiff” sometimes? A bit “automatic”? And even kind of “fake”? Enough of that! Let´s find juicier, more honest and more meaningful ways of saying and receiving thanks!   We have all been there – thanking someone for a gift, a compliment, a greeting or something else. The autopilot says “thanks”, “thank you” or even – with enthusiasm – “thank you SO much!” Sure – we mean it, we are grateful, right? And at the same time, […]

Webinar: Introduction to Empathic Communication

Do you have friends, colleagues, a partner or family members who ”make you” angry, disappointed, sad or frustrated at times? Do some people tell you that you ”make them” feel that way? Would you rather live your everyday life with less stress, frustration and guilt, and have more joy, calm and ease? In that case, we suggest you get to know empathetic communication, based on Marshall Rosenberg´s Nonviolent Communication (NVC) – by some also called the Giraffe Language. NVC is used world-wide and focuses on what we need – at any point in time – and ways through which we can get what we and others need without so much stress, frustration and anger. You can read more about NVC on cnvc.org. Empathos Partners now […]

Capacity Assessment and Development

  Sustainability is all about building on existing capacities, assessing what there is in the local context and exploring measures which can help widen or strengthen such capacities. We help you assess current capacities in your organisation, group, company or community and work with you to further strengthen them, where needed.


Drafting, Editing and Proofreading

  Do you need support in drafting or finalising a concept note, a project document or a new policy? Let us use our trained eye and native languages to give you the very best result.


Climate Change: Mitigation and Adaptation

  Communities are affected by climate change in many different ways. There is an increasing need to manage the impact of climate change in development in order to reduce its potential threat. At Empathos Partners, we can guide you in identifying measures to mitigate negative impacts and to adapt to climate change.


Context Analysis

  Before embarking on a new project or initiative, it is useful to carry out a context analysis in order to identify potential challenges and opportunities, weaknesses and strengths. We support you in analysing the political context, particularly looking at the main stakeholders and their relative influence over the success of your idea.


Effective Development Cooperation

  A timeless issue, ensuring that development cooperation is effective is a key priority for programme countries and development partners alike. Basing our experience on the nationalisation of the Paris Declaration, the Accra Action Agenda and the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation, we help you identify and implement concrete measures for enhanced aid effectiveness.


Environmental Management

  We can support you in assessing the impact of your interventions and help ensure that environmental considerations are integrated at the earlier stages of your programmes/projects and in their design and implementation. If you need environmental impact assessments, we can also prepare them with and for you.


Events Management

  A successful event is one which takes care of the participants´needs and ensures solid deliverables or results at the end. With our international experience, we can support you in planning for and organising your seminar, workshop, panel discussion or conference.


Facilitation (meetings, workshops and conferences)

  An impartial and effective process facilitator knows which methods to use to extrapolate the most meaningful messages and reflections from an audience or a group. With a highly participatory approach, we can facilitate your on-site or online meeting, workshop, conference or webinar.


Motivational Speaking

Inspiration is what drives us, what keeps us going, what makes us cross the finish line. We offer experienced motivational speakers who use storytelling and innovative methods to help captivate and inspire your audience and convey your message effectively.


Conflict Analysis and Management

  Conflict is not necessarily negative. Conflict can highlight new ideas, underline important priorities and help us identify pressing needs. Applying careful conflict analysis and using effective conflict management tools, we can train you or help you move from stalemate to effective solutions meeting everyone´s needs.


Empathetic Communication

As social animals, we might create or engage in destructive or violent behaviour – often without even being aware of it. Empathetic communication is based on Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication (NVC), a way of life and tools for true connection and effective communication between people. Empathos Partners offers introductory and advanced courses in empathetic communication – for you, your family, your workplace, your organisation and your community. Read more about NVC here.   We also offer courses in anger management, NVC in intimate relationships, NVC in the dialogue between parents and children, NVC in school, NVC at the workplace, NVC as used in conflict management and others. Please contact us for more information. NVC can really make a big difference in people´s lives. A course […]


Mediation

  Direct or shuttle mediation can be a very effective tool in managing conflicts and finding solutions which are agreeable to both or all parties. Through our experienced mediators, we can help you find agreements based on dialogue, consensus and common needs.


Gender Equality

  “Mainstreaming gender equality” is a well known concept in the development community, but unfortunately the concept is not always well implemented. We support you in ensuring that the integration of gender equality into your programmes, projects or initiative truly translates into concrete solutions which go far beyond the number of women in a workshop or seminar.


EmpathosPartners-LGBTI

LGBTI Rights

  Despite much progress over the last few years, with particular victories at the United Nations, the discrimination of and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people is a major concern world-wide. We can help your company, organisation or community design LGBTI inclusive solutions through the assessment of policies, infrastructure and culture.
