Leading with Heart: Circle Leadership
New leadership is urgently needed as we find our voices and calling. Circle leaders are learning to become, in harmony with nature and in reciprocal relationships that bring integration and reconciliation.
Our interactive workshop(s) with break- out rooms will discuss the qualities, critical thinking and behaviors of Circular Leadership that replace domination and greed. This is about reconciliation with creation and each other, listening to what is and is not shared.
Together, we will work toward ensuring that all of humanity has clean water, air, enough food, medicine, health care, education and housing, providing strategies for participants to take home and a process for engaging people of all ages in becoming Circle Leaders.
Getting started with Circle Leadership
