A new spirit is emerging in this momentous era. Individuals connect with others with whom they adventure development, innovation and change. These new kinds of connections are less ego-guided, align their collaboration to a higher purpose, and are driven by agile values. Their ultimate goal is to act to the good of humanity and earth, including the global, ecological and spiritual dimension.
In spite of good intentions, many innovative groups end in frustration. It takes more than motivation and dreams to turn longterm collaboration into a real transition of existing practices. Collaboration requires design principles in order to succeed. A collaborative circle is an agile ritual with specific characteristics and steps. Social entrepreneurs, change makers, leaders and community workers can use these principles to establish an empowering long-term collaboration with an effective impact.
