Face to Face in The Netherlands

Are you a Genuine Contact professional or interested in the Genuine Contact approach? Join us on 4 en 5 September 2020 in The Netherlands for the annual mentoring circle

International Mentoring Circle

The Dutch Genuine Contact team designs this two day international mentoring circle as a place to learn together, inspire and mentor one another in working with and in genuine contact. 

Why Mentoring Circles

An integral part of the Genuine Contact way of working is mentoring for ongoing professional and personal development. It is one of the essential components of the Genuine Contact Program. Mentoring is underpinned by key concepts and beliefs of Genuine Contact including:

  • working with the blueprint for health that is present in every organization
  • using life nurturing meetings as a catalyst for organizational success
  • developing systems for sustaining organizational health and balance that is needed for optimal effectiveness
  • working with the belief that change is constant and that ongoing mentoring is one way to develop mastery at working with change
  • opportunities for Genuine Contact in all relationships

The Genuine Contact community offers mentoring as a forum to learn the art of mentoring and to 'walk the talk of mentoring' for both individuals and organizations. Mentoring circles have been held regularly within the Genuine Contact community since their beginning in North Carolina, USA in 2001. The first mentoring circle in Amsterdam was held in 2010. As Genuine Contact professionals we can all improve our own skills and practices through mentoring.

Open Space Technology & Whole Person Process Facilitation

The design of the mentoring circle consists open space technology (OST) and whole person process facilitation (WPPF). Both are well-proven methodologies for highly participatory meetings and part of the Genuine Contact™ Program. This program provides for tools, techniques, and concepts of how to let organization of all kinds to thrive in today’s internal and external environments of constant change.
