Angela Watson discussing career issues with business leaders in Covent Garden

Why join a Careers After Forty Action Circle? Well it’s a fantastic way to share a common interest, dream, or passion with a group of like-minded people from all walks of life. An Action Circle is a 4 hour meeting held once a month, facilitated by certified Clean Language facilitators. Typically there will be 3 to 6 people attending.

Our clients tell us they love the support and structure of the sessions but you have to experience it, to believe it. We ask our clients for a 12 month commitment to this monthly session, offering the clients the opportunity to build life-long connections that will take them and their career or business to the next level.

Clean Language is an extreme listening process that is fast becoming the most effective way to change ideas into actions. The meetings will provide a supportive and encouraging environment for you to share and discuss ideas, practicalities and concerns, and also provides an extended pool of resources for all members involved. The meetings enable individuals as a group to gain focus, clarity and direction fast.

For 75% of the session you are asked to hold on to your opinions, suggestions, and advice. You simply listen to the thoughts and ideas of each other. You will be asked powerful and effective questions to gain better understanding and to enable you to find your own solutions and direction. In between you are given valuable time to reflect, research, and explore your challenges further. The whole process results in building your confidence in your own abilities, own ideas, own  plans. In addition to this you are able to hear how others solve their challenges and you absorb or exclude their ideas. No one is going to tell you what you should be doing, they will simply provide you with the space and questions* to help you decide for yourself. We have every confidence that the individual can find the solution that is right for them now.

For the last 25% of the time there is a break where you are able to discuss freely your experience and continue to build your connections further.

The aim of the Action Cricle is to provide an individual within a group the opportunity to:

  • Explore their own thinking
  • Celebrate Success
  • Find solutions that are right for them
  • Building valuable and profitable business relationships along the way

Do you want to make a difference in your local community? You could set up a local initiative, or initiate a community project and your Action Circle will provide the ideal arena for you to be proactive and inspired.

Careers After Forty believes that by creating powerful networks, hearing each other’s stories, and encouraging those around us, we can create communities where people learn, grow and celebrate success.

We believe that by working in the spirit of co-operation and empowering each other, new ideas and learning will emerge that will benefit  local and global communities.
