Abstract

Circle communication is a form of group exchange that builds a network of relationships, a sense of community. Through practices of active listening, intentional speaking, and conscious self-monitoring, circle communication emphasizes individual contribution while building consensus to fulfill the purpose of the group. In this regard, circle communication supports a shared leadership in which all individual and unique perspectives are engaged to create the common ground for action. Circle communication emerges from a shared humanity, which can balance the "division of labor" and people only being known by their specific organizational roles. Both are needed to sustain an organization. By nurturing the human side, regardless of role and function, circle communication intersects with diversity or the uniqueness of each individual, storytelling, coaching, guiding, and mentoring, as well as discovering and responding to conflict.
