Agreement Circles

Take the steps to circle design to create your own Community Agreements or Values Exploration Circle using our new relationship building design guide for online circles and keeping for all your future circles! One of the biggest challenges groups face in cooperation in the classroom or in the workplace is misunderstandings and misinterpretations or values, needs and expectations. The way a person defines “respect” can be radically different from how others do it, which can lead to unsatisfied expectations and conflicts. For this reason, community agreements and value exploration circles are such an important tool for your class or team. These circles look in depth at what your group is trying to accomplish, what you`ve put together to work or see certain values. Participants can then communicate together what they need from each other, or explore how they define certain values and needs in the context of what their team or students are doing together. This process of empathy formation helps to clarify understandings and lays the groundwork for helping people meet their needs or identify specific needs and values that may need to be addressed further through future district practices. This training will teach you how to design an online community agreement and evaluate exploration circles by providing an exemplary framework and activities that facilitate the planning and management process. This training will also provide more specific problem-solving strategies to facilitate these practices on the internet. You get examples of community agreement circles and resources to design a wide range of commercial premises or work needs.
