Last month, I posted the first sections of the latest version of the circle guide. Now the guide is complete, and it has some important enhancements over the earlier versions. There’s now a simple set of instructions for each of the 12 weeks, and each section includes:
- a clear objective
- a suggested agenda
- discussion points
- answers to common questions
- links to suggested reading
It's both easier to follow and more complete, and the guide for each week can fit on just 2 double-sided sheets of paper.
Favor #1: Critical feedback please!
A few weeks ago, someone sent me email apologizing that they had found a typo in one of the guide sections. Apologize? I was eager to thank her!
Your feedback on the guides - from mistakes to exercises you don’t like to topics I’ve missed or mistreated - is invaluable to making the guides better for future circles. So please don’t think of your critical feedback as criticizing me. Think of it as a contribution that can help future circle members.
Favor #2: Positive feedback please!
If you enjoyed the book or found your circle experience useful, consider writing a review on Amazon. I’ve counted 23 reviews so far on the different Amazon sites, and each one of them makes a difference.
It’s a contribution to me for sure. And each review is also is a signal to other people that they might find working out loud useful too.
The most fulfilling part of what I do is interacting with practitioners around the world who are trying to help themselves - and often their friends, family, and people at their firm - to get a bit more out of work and life.
When that happens, work doesn’t feel like work. If you’d like to connect with practitioners around the world and get that feeling too, join the private Facebook group where anyone can contribute an idea or ask a question or simply cheer on others who are trying to make a difference.
