Here are 5 other ways Learning Circles can add value to your organization:
1. Transformational Change Initiatives and
2. Leader Development.
The success of both of these business objectives relies on people’s ability to adapt and integrate new behaviors. Learning Circles provide a confidential forum for participants to develop awareness, explore actions, and reinforce progress via accountability to the group.
The discovery method used in Learning Circles focuses on clarifying questions and exploring alternative perspectives and is a perfect forum to help participants flesh out new ideas.
4. Global Perspectives.
For anyone operating in a global, multi-national business, the Learning Circle format enables participants to explore implicit assumptions and develop deeper understanding of cultural perspectives in order to become more effective at getting the best out of the entire workforce.
5. Team Building.
In his book, Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Patrick Lencioni points out that lack of trust, inability to manage conflict, lack of commitment and accountability, and inattention to results can doom a team to failure. Re-brand your Learning Circle as a ‘high performing team’ circle and provide a structured way to address these kinds of ‘sticky’ issues in a safe confidential environment.
