Working Out Loud: Opportunity to join a professional peer support circle

Wed, 24 August 2016

Working Out Loud circles help participants build their own network toward a goal they care about in 12 weeks by helping develop a mindset and habit which can be applied to any goal. Groups bring together around 5 people for an hour each week, using the time to build a network to help them achieve their goals.

Working Out Loud circles help you build your own network toward a goal you care about in 12 weeks by helping develop a mindset and habit you can apply to any goal. Created by John Stepper, these small peer support groups are now in 16 countries and in organisations ranging from multi-national firms to universities to humanitarian groups. The thing they all have in common is wanting people to feel intrinsically motivated to be more collaborative and effective.

Groups bring together around 5 people for an hour each week, using the time to build a network to help them achieve their goals. Each weekly meeting contains activities and exercises that are guided by the systematic approach devised by John Stepper, helping you create new positive habits.

We’re aiming to establish two groups to run for 12 weeks, from the beginning of October until the Christmas break. The groups are open to National Voices members and those involved in Wellbeing Our Way’s communities of practice, and will include an opportunity to join a virtual meeting with John Stepper to find out more about Working Out Loud. The initial groups will be based in London, with the potential for groups in other areas, or which meet virtually to develop in the future. Participants will be expected to attend all 12 weeks and cover any travel costs themselves.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a peer support circle and develop new ways of building relationships to work towards professional or personal goals.
