Todd has been leading compassionate communication workshops in business, religious and community groups since 2012. Todd’s participation in the Houston NVC board stems from the desire to further his own learning and to foster the spread of compassion in the world. He is convinced that empathy is the key element in transforming the world and that NVC is central to practicing empathy in a practical way. He would like to be part of the change he sees in the world by spreading NVC as far and wide as possible. As a new board member in the North Texas Area, Todd invites collaboration with his local community as well as through projects such as these: US-CLO‘s HBCU Oral History Project.
