What are Wisdom Circles?
Wisdom Circles are virtually held twice monthly personal mastery and leadership development meetings that convene specifically for the purpose of supporting conscious and intentional self-discovery, growth, and transformative change.
The spirit of the meeting is to cultivate a fellowship of support by allowing the humanity of the circle to be its premise. Through a custom-created curriculum, structure, and highly trained facilitation, members explore topics and skillsets together, as well as deeply engage in their own learning edges just outside their comfort zones.
Homework and assignments take place in between calls to keep the learning momentum and engagement going, as well as practical actions steps to implement in your life.
How are members curated?
Several Wisdom Circles are in the process of forming at any given time. We pull together people who resonate with similar desired outcomes, learning styles, and qualities, creating a Circle that results in compatible objectives. We focus on creating a well-rounded group consisting of diverse interests, ages, ethnicities, and work experiences.
Once you express serious interest in being in a Wisdom Circle, we’ll share with you the description of each Circle currently in process of formation, and ask you a few questions about what you are looking for. When we know a bit more about you, we’ll invite you into one or more of the Circles that we feel would best suit you.
How many members?
Six to eight people, including a facilitator.
How long do they last?
An hour and a half, twice a month, for a minimum of six months. Many Wisdom Circles have lasted years.
How are they facilitated?
One EQUUS Faculty member facilitates the dialog, exercises, practical applications, and practices. However, much of the content is driven by the cohorts themselves – in the topics they explore, and in how they support one another and actively learn to peer coach.
Who are Wisdom Circles for?
Wisdom Circles are perfect for you if:
- You are seeking to jump-start your personal and professional growth.
- You seek a community of like-minded individuals who share your values for transformative change.
- You feel you are on the verge of something, but you need support to move forward in a meaningful way.
- You want to be challenged, supported, met, and held accountable.
How do we get started?
As soon as a minimum of six cohorts have committed, the Wisdom Circle will begin. If you know of anyone who is a dedicated learner and who would be a great Wisdom Circle member, share this information with them so we can get started!
Members of Wisdom Circles navigate changes and transitions in their lives with more success. They achieve their own personal goals and outcomes with clarity and purpose, and forge meaningful connections with like-minded colleagues for years to come. Connection, wellbeing and accountability increase. Personal and professional growth with the support of the Circle members is exponential.
