LEADING THROUGH CIRCLE AND STORY -
FINDING STRENGTH FROM THE PAST TO BUILD OUR FUTURE
with Christina Baldwin, Ann Linnea, Marjeta Novak, and Natalija Vrhunc
Before there were rows of people there were circles of people who sat around a fire and spoke so that every voice contributed to decisions and actions.
Before there was data and huge quantities of information, people learned what they needed through story and listened for the common thread that could unite them.
When groups of people in the modern world sit down together in a circle and share stories relevant to why they are together, they discover the strength in their past to map a sustainable future.
This training (held in English) offers people skills to host meetings and conversations with authenticity and meaning.
- How to host a circle and create a space for people to speak truthfully, to heal old wounds, and to take personal responsibility.
- How to speak to the centre space, listen with agreements that keep everyone safe, and discover how diversity can lead to unity.
- How to ask questions that invite the contribution of stories, and to use stories to set direction and work together.
- How collective wisdom can be built from sharing what is meaningful to us through stories.
Circle is a common lineage found in some form in most societies. For 20 years, Christina Baldwin and Ann Linnea have adapted circle to be used in organizations and communities. They have created an infrastructure for circle that has been used across North America, Europe, Africa, and Australia. Within the circle they integrate the power stories to create identity and belonging. And they are delighted to join with Slovenian leaders Marjeta Novak and Natalija Vrhunc to create this training.
