Lead An Inclusive Support Circle

In moments of uncertainty, people often lean on others to create psychological safety and draw support. This is a moment when individuals can seek alignment and a sense of belonging within an organization or can turn inward and feel isolated. Carving out space for authentic conversations designed to drive connection and empathy can ultimately foster a culture of inclusion, while bolstering team cohesion and increased resiliency.

This facilitation guide has everything you need to hold space for your team in both the good times and challenging ones.
