Allied to the Melbourne Men’s Group is the Business Men’s Circle.
Based in Melbourne, the Business Men’s Circle is a free forum for authentic, confidential, non-judgmental, communication between men in business leadership. It has been designed by men for men and is founded on the acknowledged experience that bringing together ‘men in council’ is a vehicle for powerful personal transformation. The foundation values for the Business Men’s Circle are Authenticity, Acceptance, Respect and Growth.
While contemporary in approach, it draws on deep tradition to expand emotional intelligence, relationship acumen and authentic leadership capacity for men looking for improved business leadership outcomes.
The communication style adopted within the Business Men’s Circle is very different to what most men in business are familiar with. Rather than debate and challenge often involving a few assertive individuals common in many businesses, the Business Men’s Circle is an equitable non-hierarchical setting where all have the opportunity to genuinely share and learn, leveraging collective wisdom to promote real insight and deepen personal growth.
It is guided by men with extensive life and business leadership experience. This is supported by substantial coaching, counselling and other personal development experience with men over several decades.
It is a contemporary development process that references the deep tradition of indigenous cultures – a shared trusted space where men are supported, listened to and genuinely heard by other men; an environment of meaningful, purposeful development and emerging wellbeing that seeks to loosen the ’emotional straightjacket’ that most men are socialised within, promote a deeper level of self-awareness and build authentic leadership capacity.
While you don’t know what you don’t know, the Circle enables the collective wisdom of participants to deepen individual perspective and normalises your internal experiences about how you make meaning in the world.
It also draws upon the Support team’s extensive long-term business leadership experience, working with men’s personal development programs, men’s groups, leadership and people development in organisations of all sizes, and in one to one coaching, counselling and mentoring.
However, the Circle is not about ‘fixing’ men challenged by the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business world. Men don’t need to be ‘fixed’ – you are not broken; however that doesn’t mean there is nothing new to learn about yourself and/or to develop new capabilities.
The development of people who come to the Business Men’s Circle is facilitated through the process of relationship, shared wisdom, role modelling, exchange and exploration within the talking circle, supplemented/supported by a tailored men’s Leadership Development program facilitated by the Business Men’s Circle team. In addition personal coaching / mentoring is available.
