Manfred began practising and learning Nonviolent Communication (NVC) in 2000. Manfred studied with international trainers including Marshall Rosenberg, John Cunningham, Robert Gonzales, Gina Lawrie, Raj Gill, and Cate Crombie. Manfred’s first focus was in his role as a parent and in relationships. He later integrated NVC into business settings. His focus shifted 2014 towards mediation after he finalised a one year intensive mediation training with Ike Lasater and John Kinyon.
In addition to mediation, he is also a Certified Facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie and combines NVC with The Work. Manfred is available as a mediator for organisations, groups and individuals by phone, skype or in person. He also offers presentations, workshops and trainings for individuals and groups.
