Team and GROK Story
GROKtheWorld has roots back to the early 1990s, when NVC Trainer Jean Morrison began developing, compiling, and implementing games and exercises to teach Nonviolent Communication (NVC). In 2006, Jean joined forces with fellow NVC Trainer Christine King, forming a collaborative partnership with the shared goal of bringing NVC games, materials, and products to a wider audience.
Their inaugural creation, "GROK Empathy Games," has had remarkable successful, with over 50,000 copies sold in 100 countries and translations into seven languages. Subsequent products include "Kids GROK," "GROKit Facilitation Manual,” “Big GROK Cards”, as well as Jean's books "Communication FUNdamentals" and "Feelings on Parade.” Their latest creation, “WeGROK for Two,” was inspired during the pandemic when people were home bound, and has proven to function (as one user commented) as “a communication coach in a box."
All GROK products are globally utilized to enrich the teaching of Nonviolent Communication, symbolizing the widespread impact of Jean and Christine's commitment to fostering compassion, connection, and empathy around the world.
While retired from the GROKtheWorld Team, Jean continues to teach and see clients. Below is her bio. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Promoting Empathy In Over 40 Countries!
To contribute to life in a positive and life-serving way, we began our business in 2006 to promote a more peaceful and empathetic world. Galloping Giraffe Enterprises began with the original GROK cards that morphed into our current version. We have shipped to over 40 countries and it is now translated into other languages.
We were so inspired developing this product that we continue to create more materials for your use, sharing, learning, and satisfaction. Thank you for being part of this all!
