Testimonial from Joyce van der Heijden, HR Business Partner Warnaco Netherlands B.V.

In February 2013 Warnaco was officially taken over by another company. A big group of employees would lose their jobs the months after that. We decided to offer our employees a training program to guide them during the changes, help them in their personal development and prepare them for a new job.

As part of this training program we chose the training non-violent communication by Bert van Dijk

In this program you learn that your success and influence in relation to others depend on the distinction you are able to make between your perception and that what you really see and hear. The more you understand the interaction patterns, the better you are able to keep your relationships relaxed. And the results of your interaction will improve dramatically.

Around 55 of our employees subscribed for the training and the reactions were really positive.

Bert van Dijk is also founder and director of the Leary Academy.
