Experience a scalable approach to having meaningful conversations

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.

Why now?

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, organizational and societal  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.

Above and Below the Line

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.

Components:

  • 30 minutes preparation by yourself
  • 90 minutes session with your Trust Circle

Self-Awareness & the Johari Window

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.

Components:

  • 30-45 minutes preparation by yourself
  • 90 minutes session with your Trust Circle

Me to We: Silence & Listening

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.

Components:

  • 30-45 minutes preparation by yourself
  • 90 minutes session with your Trust Circle

Missing 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.

Components:

  • 30-45 minutes preparation by yourself
  • 90 minutes session with your Trust Circle

4 Ways Life Happens

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.

Components:

  • 30-45 minutes preparation by yourself
  • 90 minutes session with your Trust Circle

ARE & ACT

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.

Components:

  • 30-45 minutes preparation by yourself
  • 90 minutes session with your Trust Circle
