How Does it Work?

The structure of Empowerment Circles is deceptively simple and incredibly effective.

Online meetings are available at various times during the week across most time zones. It is recommended you attend 3 times a month. In these meetings you break up into Circles (groups) of up to 6 people and share based on the theme, challenge or inspiring project you are working on at that time. You receive feedback from all the others in your Circle. You receive support and/or encouragement according to what is happening for you in your life. Each time you attend you may be in a Circle with the same or mostly the same people or you may seek out new Circles as they become available.
  • If this sounds really simple, then there is a good reason for it. It is simple. It’s made simple because everyone who joins Empowerment Circles goes through a six module training program to learn how to get the most out of Empowerment Circles and how to offer others great feedback.

The Empowerment Circles Training Course includes:

In depth training on how to effectively participate in and get the most out of Empowerment Circles.

It’s the brainchild of Peter Hagerty who has dedicated his life to finding a way to make coaching and empowerment available to virtually anyone.

Empowerment Circles depends on the community to work. Everyone adds to the unique empowerment of everyone else by following an effective and precise method of sharing and giving feedback. Certain aspects of the method are firmly adhered to. Whereas the content of what is shared and worked on is highly flexible.

It is not a one size fits all method. It is adaptable and robust and can assist virtually anyone.

The method relies on:

  • Time Limits to produce
    • Powerful Focus
    • Prioritization
  • Limiting Projection of Opinions onto Others
  • Respect for Facilitators
  • Effective Sharing and Feedback Methods
  • Doing What Works
    • Eliminating Dogma
  • Participants who choose to:
    • Actively seek to support others
    • Be kind and compassionate when needed
    • Be honest and direct when needed
    • Be humble and consider feedback they receive
    • Consciously choose which feedback to take on
    • Politely ignore feedback which does not suit them

Empowerment Circles are effective because:

  • it adheres to what works without respect for dogma or beliefs which cannot be proven to be effective
  • it has been tried and tested over more than a decade
  • the method has been simplified to enable most people to get great results
  • everyone in Empowerment Circles is trained to help make their participation effective for them and for those in their circle
  • it has a low cost ensuring high accessibility
  • it is not free, ensuring commitment from members

Does it Replace Coaching?

Not entirely. Good coaching can be hard to find and can be too expensive for many people.

Empowerment Circles is designed to deliver most of the benefits of coaching such as:

  • guidance on tuning into your values
  • clarifying your purpose
  • achieving your goals
  • looking after yourself
  • receiving regular feedback on your progress

How is all this achieved with people who aren’t professional coaches?

The training course for Empowerment Circles is the result of many years of refinement to evoke the natural perception and wisdom that most people have. This perception is wisdom tends to be more easily evoked in people who have a natural tendency to assist others. In this way the effectiveness of Empowerment Circles approaches that of coaching from trained professionals.

Having more than one person providing feedback permits multiple perspectives. Not all feedback will be helpful however receiving feedback from a lot more than one person dramatically increases the chances that you will receive breakthrough feedback. Participants in Empowerment Circles frequently express surprise at the quality of the feedback they receive. What’s more, many participants who provide feedback discover that they tap into reserves of wisdom and depths of perception that they did not know they have.

As mentioned above, Empowerment Circles is the life work of Peter Hagerty, who has been actively coaching individuals and businesses since 1990. He has spent much of this time seeking a way to provide create such a community. The method has been refined to foster the inherent wisdom and perception everyone has inside them. This wisdom and perception becomes obvious to participants surprisingly quickly.

Facilitators with specific areas of specialty may at times offer extra training and guidance in their chosen field and may charge for more refined and specific coaching in conjunction with Genuine YOUniversity. Members may choose to upgrade their access to these Specialized Circles at times for specific periods if they wish to. Prices for such Circles are determined on a case by case basis.

What Can’t Empowerment Circles Do?

Empowerment Circles cannot and will not assist people whose goal is to suppress or harm others or themselves. It does not seek to resolve controversial social or political issues, it only seeks to empower individuals who wish to live a better life and who wish to offer others the same opportunity.

It cannot assist people who require professional assistance with deep mental health issues or extreme difficulties with long term grieving or post traumatic stress disorder or brain injuries. It may not be suitable for business owners who run companies with approximate revenue in excess five million dollars, such individuals are best suited to individual coaching. It cannot teach specific professional skills that might be provided by traditional tertiary education, such as accounting, law and other highly specialized knowledge.
