About Circle Process: Since the discovery of fire, humans have gathered in circle to tell stories, share ideas and solve problems. Today, our work circles have morphed into long rectangular tables and the fire has moved to one end, known as the PowerPoint presentation. One speaker tells the story. Meanwhile, members or employees seek more meaning. Leaders seek engagement from/with their members or employees. Positive relationships, engagement (flow), a sense of meaning and achievement happens when we put the fire back into the center of our circle. It
happens when we face each other and have a different kind of conversation.
Circle Process intoroduces the concept of story and circle to create an evironment wherein all members/employees can become a part of something more meaningful than just a job.
Circle training teaches:
- to create a safe environment where people will share.
- Build trust between team members, breakdown hidden agendas and secrets.
- Clarify or create a sense of purpose and meaning for your work.
- Make every person feel appreciated, valued and accountable.
- Deal with "shadow", the unspoken rules, taboo topics and sacred cows.
- Eliminate secret meetings and underground communications.
- Turn your team into a tribe that truly cares, that lives to contribute.
