On June 16-18, 2010 in New York City, I participated in a training/co-learning retreat called ‘The Art of Participatory Leadership” which was called and hosted by Martin Siesta, Toke Paludan Moller, Tuesday Ryan Hart, Nancy Fritsche Eagan and Kelly McGowan.

The intention of this interactive training/co-learning retreat was to expand and deepen the understanding of what is possible when we create structures and practices that keep our primary purpose and passion in the center of our work.

This training was an opportunity for me to enter a learning journey that I have been going through for 2 years, with worldly hosts/trainers who have deep practices of participatory leadership. I began my journey practicing circle meetings with my business partners and then extending it to dream circle and congress of women circle meetings.

The business strategic and healing circle meetings are held every other week where our collective wisdom and intelligence are engaged to find best solutions on any issues we are having. We practice speaking and listening with intention and always tend to the well being of each other. There are principles and practices to the circle and four agreements that are kept. These agreements are:

  1. Listen without judgment
  2. Whatever is said in circle stays in circle
  3. Offer what you can and ask for what you need
  4. silence is also part of the conversation.

We are having the best business meeting we have ever had and we have been together for over 16 years.
