Gratitude – such a simple thing

Dr Marshall Rosenberg is the founder of ‘Nonviolent Communication’ and someone I consider the best communicator I’ve ever met. Just by developing NVC he elevated himself to near genius status. A woman once came up to him at the end of a seminar and said ‘Dr Rosenberg, you’re great!’ He said ‘Thank you, but it would help me more if you explained why you think that.’ It’s not the way most of us act; most of us would have said ‘Thank you’ then carried on or talked about something different.
