Find Your Flavour - Circling Leadership Training
Circling is a powerful practice. Not just for your understanding your world and getting somebody else’s, but also for your leadership development.
I have not yet found a practice – outside the therapeutic realm – that highlights blindspots so clearly, and can be such a fast track for personal development. Ironically by not wanting to change or fix anything. If you are willing to go in. Into yourself, into your assumptions, into your stories. If you are willing to understand different perspectives, open your eyes to new worlds (including the ones inside you) and bring endless curiosity to what is happening in the moment, right now, even when you do not want to.
For me, Circling has been highly transformational. And learning to facilitate a good Circle takes it up a notch. Well, several notches to be honest. I am passionate about the ever-evolving skills that together make a good, or even a great, facilitator. The skills of curiosity, of setting a good context for a powerful space, of inviting in different perspectives, of spotting dissonance, of making choices and from where – when there are so many rabbit holes to follow, of leading a group without leaving them behind. Of being willing, endlessly, to look at yourself and what comes up in a space of leadership with kind and curious eyes. Leadership puts you, and all your stuff, in the spotlight. In martial arts they say: “A master is a full time student”.
I have taught Circling for many years. And I have found that teaching Circling Leadership is one of the things I love to do most. This training spans 6 months, where we have time together to learn, grow and thrive.
I am excited, as this is one of my zones of genius, and I am always learning. And I am excited because I know how deep you can go when you step up to the plate. I am “Integral Circling trained” and combine this with my sensitivity and intuition, my training in martial arts, energy work, embodiment and intimacy practices. I will offer parts of these whenever it feels suited and called for. But the core will be Circling, sitting in group and getting really good at listening, at attuning, at hearing another while holding space for the whole group and yourself and everything that comes up in the process.
This training is exclusive; I only invite 6 people to join me, so we can sit in one Circle a lot and can become really intimate with each other.
My dear friend and skilled facilitator & teacher, Andrew Venezia, will co-lead this training with me.
✦ The context
- We have 4 full weekends together: 22 & 23 October and 10 & 11 December 2022 and 4 & 5 February and 15 & 16 April 2023.
- In between our weekends we will have 6 online 3 hour meetings (to be scheduled with the group)
- You will get 2 private Coaching sessions to support you in your process.
- You have the option to try to get certified to facilitate Birthday Circles.
- After completing the course we will start a 6 month Leadership Intervision group to support you in your integration, and;
- I encourage you to meet up a lot and practice on and with each other.
✦ The process
This basically is a leadership laboratory: we will create a space together where we will learn from each other. We will bring in our skills and expertise, our knowledge and awareness, and will guide the container and content, yet this is also very much a co-created space where we will listen to each other and create the most optimal space for all of us. You will start practising being in the lead as soon as you can, and work with whatever that brings up. We will support each other deeply, and stay in, even as it gets rough. We will build a space where we will always look at each other with love, even when we are annoyed or worse. And honour ourselves and each other deeply.
It will be a deep dive and deep journey together. All in. In the end you have the option to try to get certified to facilitate Circles outside of this safe space. And I hope to have given you a solid skill set to apply in your daily leadership, wherever that may be.
✦ What you will get, no matter what, is:
- A deepened sense of self
- A stronger capacity to hold more of you and other
- A heightened sensitivity to what is happening in you and around you
- An embodied imprint of your unique way of leading
- A solid base in facilitation skill and a personal leadership upgrade
- A super toolbox (and the guts) for actively creating the life and relationships you want (by actively practising in a safe space)
- And hopefully, a much deeper appreciation of the beautiful life we get to live – together.

Anke & Andrew
"This training facilitated skilfully and artfully by Anke, is a potent immersion into the exploration of your leadership right at the frontiers of how you actually lead. This is NOT an abstract exploration that leaves you unchanged, but a direct relational experience of what happens in the moment by moment encounter, shining the light on all those less conscious choices you make while appreciating your specific talents.
The bandwidth of my leadership has increased exponentially through this training. I am feeling, being and making choices that align with the being I have always known myself to be on the inside. So much tension has dissolved around my internal and perceived external expectations of my leadership, hence my capacity to actively and effectively lead has increased. And the confidence in the value of my gifts brings so much freedom to life as a whole.
If you are ready to fully step into your Self, I mean really step in, then open yourself a little further to the idea that this course could be waiting for you. I highly recommend this training.”
