Strengths in Circles: Building Groups that Flourish and Fly

Circles technology is a much-loved approach to group facilitation that is used in school classrooms, dispute resolution, mediation, juvenile justice, reconciliation processes and restorative justice practice. Group workers and facilitators around the world have adopted Circles processes.

And now here it is: the world’s first hands-on tool that identifies 42 key elements that sit at the hub of Circles conversations. These are the values or ground rules that build cultures of respect into Circles work. Based on Sue Roffey’s ‘ASPIRE’ acronym, Strengths in Circles is built around 6 essential themes:

Agency

  • We think things through
  • We use our strengths

Safety

  • We can get help
  • We build trust with each other

Positivity

  • We show gratitude
  • We explore possibilities

Inclusion

  • We welcome everyone
  • We believe everyone has something to offer

Respect

  • We are all unique
  • We hear each other’s stories

Equality

  • We each have a voice
  • We all have rights and responsibilities

Each theme names 6 key values that can be discussed, interpreted and considered for adoption as ground rules by any group. Watch the dynamics of the group evolve within the sphere of these values!
