Every week leaders will be invited to reflect on offered material and then bring their reflections into a Trust Circle. A Trust Circle is a space where participants bring their full vulnerable selves. A space where we meet all of ourselves and each other, where we have the difficult conversations we don’t often have in other places. Without this practice of sharing and listening with courage and curiosity there would be no journey towards greater consciousness.
We live in a time where we have multiple complex challenges – climate change, increasing polarization, and mental health pandemic, only to name a few.
In this time of great disconnection and complexity, this Master Class provides a proven method for having conversations that really matter in personal, societal and planetary contexts.
More than ever our civilizations need to collaborate not alienate. This Master Class offers an alternative to current paradigms of personal and organizational relationships.
The Argonauts work with facilitators highly trained in the methodology of Conversational Fluency.
Our immersive program consists of weekly peer exchange and individual reflection activities.

The Art of Conversational Fluency begins with our ability to understand where we are in the conversation. We can either be reacting or responding to those we are conversing with. We introduce this difference by using the simple analogy of a line. You can either be above or below the line at any given time. But where you are will determine the "outcome” of that conversation.
We continue to expand our self-awareness with the help of others. We can never fully see ourselves, and so we need feedback from others to understand our blind spots and the masks we wear in different areas of our lives.
Conscious leadership is about both understanding ourselves and others more fully. In order to do this we must grow our empathy. One powerful way of doing so is by listening and allowing silence in conversations.
We can have conversations that are transactional, functional, connected or meaningful. Occasionally we will have a conversation that is transformational. Often this transformation lies hidden in what we call our missing conversations.
We have different responses to the world and our relationships. You might see yourself as a victim or as someone who is in control of life or you might see yourself as a conduit through which life happens. We will introduce a model to help you explore 4 potential ways of being in the world.
Conscious leadership begins by growing our understanding of who and how we ARE in the world. But true transformation happens only once we bring these learnings into how we ACT in the world.
We schedule cohorts in advance. Your attendance is required for all six sessions of the cohort. Please let us know your preferred cohort upon signup.
If you can’t make any of them, please submit your scheduling preferences after signup. We will do our best to accommodate your and your peers’ feedback in the next cohort, but please keep in mind we cannot guarantee a timely start date in advance.
