Power of Peers!
An integral part of Weaving the Future of Animal Behavior (WFAB) is the formation of PoP Circles. Sometimes, though, participants are looking to join a new PoP Circle, or they wish to welcome new members into their circle to boost numbers and perspectives.
What are PoP Circles?
PoP Circles are based on a model described in the book "Every Other Thursday" by Ellen Daniell. The key features are that members join and commit freely, confidentiality, and all have agreed to follow the structure. The structure involves peer coaching -- asking questions that encourage self-directed learning and developing actions to move towards goal. Peer coaching is not mentoring, giving advice or suggestions, or sharing stories. Instead, this is an opportunity to help your peers figure out ways to help themselves.
