Change the Chairs – Change the Conversation  

Joy hosts authentic conversations using The Circle Way methodology and co-facilitates Introduction to The Circle Way.

Who needs these intentional, authentic conversations? Well, we all do.   

I work with groups who;

  • Want authentic communication and meaningful meetings,
  • Need to foster and maintain engagement,
  • Need a platform where everyone can be heard,
  • Want to plan and make decisions collaboratively,
  • Appreciate the wisdom that arises from presence and good listening,
  • Are navigating uncertainty, possibility and transformation,
  • Desire a method for checking in and being present with each other.

This work may apply to;

  • Community groups,
  • Businesses, Non-Profit and Health organizations,
  • Leadership teams,
  • School Parent Councils, Parenting Groups,
  • Peer Support Groups,
  • …and more.

If your group would benefit from a facilitator-guided, authentic, intentional conversation, consider using aspects of Circle. The beauty of The Circle Way is it can be adapted to so many different circumstances, contact Joy to discuss your unique needs.
