Our founding Circle at The Argonauts has undergone a 15-year transformative journey, fostering a deep level of human connection and group coherence through personal and professional challenges, resulting in the creation of the Argonauts Manifesto that blends the ancient myth of the Argonaut saga with a contemporary vision for conscious leadership, enabling transformative personal and professional growth with powerful organizational and societal impact.

Our Core Framework

Start your journey from Me to We.

Conversational Fluency™ is the core of our methodology. It harmonizes our inner and outer dialogue through the principles of ARE™: Awareness, Responsibility and Empathy.

Implemented in the Trust Circle journey, it serves as a catalyst for the transformation from “me” to “we”. It moves us from a scarcity, transaction-based mindset of the intellectual mind to an abundance mindset of the soulful mind through meaningful conversations. We expand our worldview, nurture community, and elevate consciousness. Embodying Conversational Fluency™ unlocks endless possibilities for human magic.
