Are you looking for a better way to communicate and collaborate? Look no further than the circle technique. Tackling sensitive conversations is never easy, but the circle technique can make it a whole lot simpler. Say goodbye to awkward silences and ineffective debriefing sessions and get ready to take your communication skills to the next level with this innovative technique.
Join Farley Schweigert on this episode of Teach Me Something Tuesday on the Healthcare Education Transformation Podcast for a discussion on the power of the circle. Farley shares their experiences using this technique in both the classroom and their hippotherapy clinic to promote communication, collegiality, and a level playing field. With a focus on debriefing after student clinics, Farley explores the benefits of circle time and offers tips for overcoming awkward silences and coaching students to work effectively within the circle. Tune in for insights on how to bring everybody on the same page and harness the power of the circle in your own conversations.
