Art of Hosting practitioners – as well as others who use participatory process as part of their practice – are often familiar with circle mostly as a tool for check-in and check-out, or as a way of arranging the chairs to create an environment for something different to occur.
For those of you who want to go deeper, further in your capacity and ability as hosts of conversations that matter, I invite you to learn circle process. Get the listening, get the silence, get the experience of creating a center through which inspiration can arrive. Understanding the power of circle means being able to take the other practices and methodologies to a deeper level (such as World Café and Open Space Technology) as they all share the pattern of circle.
Join Nancy Fritsche Eagan and myself at a new two-day workshop, Transformative Meetings, which is based on PeerSpirit Circle's The Circe Way. The Vancouver dates are November 6th & 7th - come and discover how using circle process in meetings can establish conditions for better listening and intentional speaking, increase participation and collaboration in meetings, reconcile difficult dynamics, encourage genuine contribution and creativity, resulting in better outcomes in our work.
The early bird pricing of $325 for this two-day workshop is ending October 10th. Learn more about the workshop, the team and inspiration on the web at Transformative Meetings.
