Compasses to point you towards emotional intelligence and NVC
The metaFox Emotions and Needs Compass Bundle consists of two complementary coaching tools designed to develop your emotional intelligence and assist your nonviolent communication practice. These compasses will help you identify, recognize and name your emotions and needs – fundamental skills in becoming emotionally intelligent and in practicing compassionate communication.
One of the first steps to holistic health and wellbeing is self-awareness. We created the Emotions Compass to aid you in enhancing your self-knowledge.
Identifying and naming emotions is often not easy. It’s sometimes frustrating when you cannot find the right vocabulary to express what you feel. Questions like “What emotion am I feeling?” are often overlooked and pushed aside because people have difficulty naming their own feelings.

Brief explanation of how emotions developed and how to deal with them
Recognizing your personal and social needs is the key to taking the next possible actions that will satisfy them. The Needs Compass is a valuable learning resource to help identify, understand, and express your needs.
When you are aware of what is most important in your life, your needs, you can start making ways to meet them and live a fulfilled life. And you can begin by clearly communicating your needs to people who can help you meet them.
Having a deep familiarity with your needs will also make you sensitive and considerate to the needs of others. Thus, you begin to see how people’s actions are influenced by their needs.
Two main categories
Structured into “Social Needs” and “Personal Needs”
Other useful categories
Organized further by “Context”, “Family of Needs” and “Needs”
Colors & icons for easy association
Warmer colors for immediate needs and cooler colors for long term needs
Concise info on needs
Provides short information about needs with essential concepts and practical advice
How emotions and needs are connected in nonviolent communication
According to Marshall Rosenberg’s theory of nonviolent communication, our needs can be understood as the roots of our emotions. When our needs are not met, we feel unpleasant emotions like anger and fear. Conversely, we feel pleasant ones like enthusiasm and happiness when they are fulfilled.
Thus, your feelings and emotions are signposts and signals of your met or unmet needs.
Effectively communicating these emotions and needs makes it easier for you and the people around you to work on satisfying them. But because most of us weren’t taught to think in terms of feelings and needs, expressing them to ourselves and others is surprisingly difficult in daily life.
This is the challenge that the metaFox Emotions and Needs Compass Bundle hopes to address. That by developing your ability to label and understand your emotions and needs, we can help you become emotionally intelligent and able to compassionately communicate with people.
