Exploring Human Connection & Belonging
I am excited to share a captivating topic that I recently introduced to my coaching cohort — the “Circles of Belonging.” This thought-provoking concept, curated by insightful authors Margaret Wheatley and Richard Richardson, takes us on an exploration of the intricate threads of human connection.
🎯 Navigating the Circles 🎯
Imagine three interconnected circles, each unraveling a unique facet of belonging:
The Inner Circle: This intimate space radiates deep acceptance and mutual understanding, nurturing personal growth and igniting creativity.
The Middle Circle: Shared with colleagues, friends, and neighbors, this zone kindles a sense of community and collaboration, enriching our collective identity.
The Outer Circle: Anchored in shared interests or values, this expansive realm broadens our horizons and intertwines us with the diversity of humanity.
🔮 Our Shared Exploration 🔮
As we collectively embark on this journey:
💭 Let’s reflect on the resonances of the "Circle of Belonging" model within your own life.
💭 Let’s navigate through your inner, middle, and outer circles, aligning them with your unique connections.
💭 Let’s enrich our dialogue with anecdotes that unveil the significance of shared values in your sense of belonging.
I encourage you to illustrate your insights through a personal 'Circle of Belonging' diagram, unveiling the profound layers of human connection and the threads of our shared experiences. Many in my coaching cohort were surprised to find that these circles have changed since living in a post-pandemic world.
