Living togetherness needs freedom and inspiration, while organization, on the other hand, requires method, firm commitments and leadership. How does this fit together? With the Four-Step Circle, the NVC-plus Matrix, and the NVC-plus Tool Cards, all freely available, you and your team will quickly learn how NVC-plus works. First, we'll explain the Four-Step Circle. It is the heart of GFK-plus. Click or tap on the four round fields and on the small cards below to learn more.

Your method for Teams, Start-Ups, Companies and Initiatives
NVC-plus is a new method for self-organized cooperation at eye level. Fresh dynamics, meaning and liveliness in teams, companies and initiatives that want to get along without a boss/determiner. Also partnership can benefit.
life-supporting     organic     self-organized Gabriel Fritsch - System development and method design
life serving organic self-organized
An organism is alive as long as its cells and organs are alive and interact in a life-serving way by themselves. Life is a self-organized process. The self-organization with which all living things, from individual organisms to the entire biosphere, flourish, works with something other than instructions, rules and laws. What can your team, partnership, initiative or company learn from this? With NVC-plus we have developed a simple method for you. With it, powerful synergetic cooperation does not remain just a dream or philosophical claim, but can actually be lived.

The culture level model of NVC-plus

The central model of NVC-plus is the four-step circle. In addition, there is the Utopia Magic Circle and the NVC-plus Matrix as well as helpful tools for all questions and problems that can arise in cooperation. With this video you get a good overview.

Living organizations

With NVC-plus, a team can organize itself at eye level. In today's culture of law, we have already pretty much optimized the functional togetherness in which people mesh like gears. But cogwheels are not alive. They function, but they do not flourish and thrive. With NVC-plus, we are moving into the realm of agile, participative and organic togetherness. The symbol is no longer the pyramid of domination, but the organic circular structure or spiral shape. NVC-plus helps partnerships, companies and communities that want to live the future today: Agility 5.0 privately and in your power team.
There are different basic qualities of togetherness, which gradually develop in such a way that an individual can live his humanity better and better. Roughly, three stages of development can be identified, which show the way from being against each other to being with each other. Self-organization, as we understand it, is only possible on the last stage.
1 . Culture of dominance Dominance of strong people and institutions 2 . Culture of functionality Dominance of rules 3 . Culture of care Dominance of heart
The cultural stages build on each other and each of these three cultures has a constructive and a destructive phase. We suspect that with dominance - the dark side of power - we rarely achieve good today. But in anarchistic and chaotic times, brute strength often creates the first order until it is replaced over time by the culture of functionality, which with its rules and laws produces a more powerful and therefore more favorable order. "Functioning" people may create prosperity, but they hardly become happy. Today, we are increasingly living in the late phase of this culture of functionality. It has already passed its zenith in many places, and there, even with even more rules and regulations, we can no longer properly regulate the increasingly complex interaction, either in private, professional or social contexts. What would be the next step now? If we do not take this step, things will go downhill again and we will soon find ourselves in the culture of dominance or even in chaos. However, if we move forward courageously, the evolution of togetherness will emerge as a peaceful revolution of hearts in companies and communities.

An Overview of NVC-plus

NVC-plus is creative commons

You can use the working material privately and commercially without restrictions. If you develop and design NVC-plus material yourself, we would be happy if you inform us about it. In the downloads and in the store you will find a lot of free material. All basic material is free. All information is open and freely available. We are happy if you use it and pass it on. You can also contribute to the organic development or go your own creative ways to create a colorful variety. On this website you will always find your way back to the central and ideology-free basic version of NVC-plus.
2. Pyramid  (functional order) 3. Heart (caring order) 1. Club (dominant order)
Life itself is based on organization and order. The inflorescence of a sunflower shows that there is the ability in life forms to create an order from within. However, how does interaction occur among the different life forms? The flowers need the bees and the bees need the nectar of the flowers. Is it just a coincidence that flowers came into being that produce nectar, which can attract bees with its scent? How could flowers come into existence if bees had not been there before, but without flowers they would have had no food at all? There are apparently self-ordering powers, which come from the totality of a biosphere. The order ability of each cell is thus a part of a higher organic order. We can use this principle for our partnerships, teams, companies and communities.

Self-organization needs an overview and for an overview it needs the abilities of differentiation and assignment. The three pillars of a company are formed by a) the interaction of the people in the project or company, b) the innovations and novelties that the company realizes and c) the business with which the company exerts its influence on others and environment. In each area, people think, experience and plan according to different principles. Thus the visions and strategies and realizations are to be regarded in each case separately. If this is not done, blind spots will almost always arise, which will have an impact. The NVC-plus matrix is an effective analysis, planning and control board for a self-organized team. Self-organized means that the team designs its own current project or company matrix and always adapts it to the current processes.

Your NVC-plus Toolcards
Self-organization is not only a question of the right method, but also a question of skills. In fact, there are many skills that come together. The more demanding your projects become, the better the cooperation will have to be so that you can be successful as a team. That's when you're always grateful for a tool or two to help you out of a jam. These free tool cards are a way to focus awareness on certain aspects of togetherness when needed, so that skills can develop there effectively. There are also good working materials for the tool cards in the store, much of which is also free. They are described in more detail in the NVC-plus book and videos.
Utopia-Magic Circle
The Utopia Magic Circle is an NVC-plus element, and as that it's a small tool that you can use very well without NVC-plus. With this tool you open an utopian space within you and your team. For NVC-plus it is essential that people are on their own life track and act from there out of their utopian power. But how do you find your utopia if you are not inspired at all? How do you find to your natural inner knowledge, which every being, involved in the creation, possesses out of its involvement? In any case not by thinking too much. Try it with the utopia magic circle. Try it best together with your team, if you want to look for your next step. Because self- organization starts from the conscious self. And remember: Life is utopian by principle.

NVC-Magic Circle
Sometimes it is better to sit back first and clarify yourself and the relationship level instead of continuing to work together under stress. With the NVC Magic Circle there is now an NVC-plus element, a small tool that you can use very well even without NVC-plus. With this tool you become aware of what connects you to difficult situations, issues or problems. For this we have brought the classical Nonviolent Communication according to Dr. Marshall Rosenberg into a magic circle process. For NVC-plus it is essential that people have enough peace with each other and with their situation to be able to act out of their utopian power. It means as to come out of crises. But how can this be done if we always resort to the same thoughts, words and actions out of the same understanding? How do you find your natural inner knowledge, which every being involved in creation possesses out of this involvement? At least not by thinking too much. Try it once with the NVC magic circle. Also try it together with your team if you are in a crisis and want to get out of it. Nature is and always will be creative. Bring some natural creativity to the same old problems.
