What does the Trust Circle for Teams Program look like?

Primary goal

To future-proof your organization by supporting teams to build a conscious culture of trust and purpose that nourishes innovation, collaboration and real impact.

Expected outcomes

Trust Circles for Teams and conscious leadership transformation establish key elements of a high-performing, trusting, and purpose-led organization.

  • Fostering trust and connection through facilitated, intimate conversations
  • Creating purposeful engagement through increased awareness and empathy
  • Unlocking collective wisdom to drive better collaboration and decision-making
  • Cultivating innovation in an environment that enables risk-taking
  • Aligning individual purpose and organizational mission to increase commitment and performance

Core method

Leadership transformation based not only on cognitive intelligence (IQ) but also empathy (EQ), and consciousness (CQ). A continuous, facilitated transformation guided by the Conversational Fluency™ methodology.

How it works

The key to a successful cultural transformation lies in a well-defined program that follows a three-stage, cohort-based approach based on the law of diffusion of innovation. The program includes Assessments, Master Class, and Trust Circle Journey, and by selecting participants carefully, your company can experience a seamless and effective transformation. 

What will you and your team experience?

Three core elements of our carefully designed process make the difference.

Step 1

The Conscious States of Leadership Profile™ (CSLP)

The Conscious States of Leadership Profile™ is a powerful tool developed by The Argonauts based on Vertical Development Theory. The CSLP supports pre-selection of change makers and people inspirers within your organization and is followed by a team workshop facilitated by our experts, helping to explore the relationship between different states and their impact on team collaboration and organizational success.

Step 2

The Conversational Fluency™ Master Class

The Master Class is a curated and facilitated 6-week program that initiates participants into the experience of Conversational Fluency™. This is a different way of having conversations that truly matter, one that creates openness and builds trust. Through its unique mechanisms, Conversational Fluency™ creates the psychological safety and trust needed to cultivate the individual and collective potential within teams.

Step 3

The Trust Circle™

Trust Circles™ are modular groups of 6-8 team members dedicated to a journey of conscious leadership for a minimum of 12 months. In monthly virtual meetings, the team engages in meaningful conversations that allow for more effective collaboration, better decision-making, and higher performance towards individual and collective purpose.
