EMC Southern California Women of the West meet regularly to learn and grow together. The intention is to offer an environment where our group of like-minded individuals can talk about areas of common interest for development, professionally and/or personally. We all share the common goal of learning together and do this by following the Circle Fundamentals:
Communication: Commit to share openly and honestly—and to listen with empathy. Why it matters: Research shows that sharing begets sharing. As we share with one another, we will feel more connected and better positioned to offer helpful insights and ideas.
Confidentiality: Trust is critical. What happens in our Circle should stay in our Circle. Why it matters: Members won’t want to share real issues if they don’t feel they can trust everyone in the Circle.
Commitment: “Everyone should be invested in our Circle’s success and be fully present at meetings.” Why it matters: The more everyone participates, the more we’ll all get out of our Circle—the expression “groups are only as strong as their weakest link” is true.
