Event Details

Are you longing to bring deeper consciousness to your work, into your leadership and to your work related relationships? Do you feel the potential of what’s possible and want to open to that potential more and let it emerge? If you are a yes to this and have a yearning to meet others more truly, communicate authentically and have more meaningful connections and conversations that matter with the people you do business with, then this training might be for you!


In this 6-weeks basic Circling in Business training you will learn and practice the basics of Circling so you will have a better understanding of the underlying principles and can start integrating Circling in your professional life.


Circling is a relational-technology based on cutting-edge but simple practices and distinctions that support you in:

– finding what is most true to you,
– communicating this powerfully and naturally,
– widening your perspectives and ability to receive and stay open to others,
– nurturing a sense of deep personal and collective trust that is both relieving and generative.


This training is for people that are serious about their development and growth!


— In six afternoons you will:

• Learn the principles of Circling and practice Circling in small groups and in a big group resembling smaller or larger meetings in business. Each week you will focus on and practice a specific Circling-skill so that after the training you have honed your skills and are able to Circle anywhere, anytime.

• You’ll practice noticing what is happening on different levels in the group: interpersonal, intrapersonal and in the larger field and experiment with expressing it so you will constructively influence the (group) process or dynamic.

• Practice to be in presence and connect with others from presence and experience the effect it has on yourself and others. You will notice a huge shift in your connections: from flatness to depth and fullness, from superficial to meaningful and real.

• Practice to notice and observe objectively, without prejudice and with fresh eyes in any situations and become more aware of when you are not. This will help increase your ability to get more informed before making decisions or taking action.

• Explore the edges between surrendering to what’s there in the field in the moment and taking leadership. We call this surrendered leadership, which is a leadership style based on presence, connection and authenticity.

• Increase awareness of when you are leading/ acting while being in connection and when not. You will learn to notice the difference in yourself as in the effects on others.

• To support your understanding of Circling you’ll receive learning material exploring the theoretical underpinnings of the practice.
