Leaders circle

Since time immemorial, sitting in a circle of competent personalities, and learning from and with each other, has proven to be a very special and exciting way of communication…


Established in 2006, the LEADERS CIRCLE has been carried and inspired by personalities who authentically stand for leading organisations with courage, mindfulness and foresight. They are people who are committed to lifelong learning.

As an active player in Kenya who wants to see the country develop to its full potential, we are inviting you to our next Leaders Circle. We bring together leaders like you who are committed to building and leading organisations that contribute positively to people’s lives.


The Leaders Circle has no patent remedies. Here you learn from the experience of others, from stories and an inspiring dialogue. No more and no less. Story telling and generative dialogue are the experimental and highly effective forms of communication in the LEADERS CIRCLE. Since time immemorial, it has proven to be a very special and exciting way of sitting in a circle of competent personalities, learning from and with each other.

Within the Leaders Circle, through our story-telling, each participant benefits from the experience of others, through facilitated dialogue. This sharing of inspiring stories by wise men and women is a form of learning and encouragement that has existed for as long as human beings themselves, and we know how much the earlier events have enriched and inspired us. For although storytelling may appear to be a straightforward learning tool, it takes a sophisticated awareness of its potential to make it work effectively… and in a limited period of time.
