Designer Circle Frequently Asked Questions:
What is a designer circle?
A designer circle is a group of 5-10 growth minded individuals who are committed to working on themselves and sharing resources, comparing notes and acting as peer mentors along the way. Think book club – but make it self-development.
What is the format of a designer circle session?
Whether on Zoom in or person, Designer Circles start with introductions of each participant going through the program. Each session will be spent learning new tools and discussing how implementing the work between weeks has been going. One of the greatest side effects of this work is in the connectedness of the group which depends on each person’s participation in the meeting and completion of the work in between sessions.
Will I be visible in virtual meetings to the group?
Yes. If your designer circle is virtual, make sure you are set up in a place where distractions are limited, you have strong internet connection and the audio of our meeting can only be heard by you as confidentiality is a key component. You will be encouraged to participate using your video and microphone throughout the meeting.
How can I join a designer circle?
Designer circles are started seasonally, or by request. If you have your own network or organization you’d like to go through the Good Life Designed curriculum with – please email us directly to work with us to host your own private designer circle experience.
Should I join with best friends or family?
Designer circles are places for you to work on yourself in the way that you find most helpful. We suggest not doing this work with people you are closest to, so that you have space to sort out what you want to get to the root of and shift. We do recommend doing this work at the same time, in different groups, as people you are closest to so that you can encourage and support each others’ development from a distance. Please feel free to reach out to Sine at Sine@goodlifedesigned.com with questions.
How often do designer circles meet?
That is up to the group but usually designer circles meet weekly or bi-monthly. Meetings typically take 1.5-2 hours.
What is the cost of joining a designer circle?
That depends on each session based on who the facilitators are and the format / length of the session. Typically around $350 – 450.
What does the commitment look like to be in a designer circle?
Designer Circles do require a commitment to yourself and to the group you are on this journey with. Due to the pace and deep nature of this group – it is important that people who decide to commit to a designer circle are ready to do the work and show up to each meeting, whether it’s virtual or in person. With your commitment, this program results in a deep understanding of who you are and what your next phase looks like and a great support system to hold you accountable.
What happens if I miss one?
You will not be penalized in any way. Just know your group missed you!
If I can’t make a designer circle, do I get a refund for the classes I miss?
No – in an effort to encourage people to stick with the commitment they made – refunds will not be made for missed classes.
The designer circle experience helped me take a moment to dig deeper into my thoughts and to learn how to be more in-tune with myself.
I would recommend a designer circle to people who are open minded and looking for clarity and purpose in life to take action. It is great for those working on bettering themselves and interested in being a part of a group of like-minded people.
