WOL Circle Method. 12 weeks in 12 hours of sharing knowledge and networking within a protected experimental space.


The WOL Circle method

Effective growth: The WOL Circle method

Working Out Loud is a way of working, an attitude and a skill at the same time. We use the WOL Circle method to teach you these three aspects of WOL. This involves 3 to 5 people coming together in a Circle for an hour a week over a period of 12 weeks. A protected experimental space is created during this time. Each participant has an individual learning topic – for example, how to create a homepage. During the sessions, participants learn how to build up a network of experts around their learning topic in order to acquire the necessary knowledge for implementation. Other group members provide feedback and their own network to support you. In this way, you learn how to create a network of experts (also virtual) and how to work with its members to establish the network as a valuable knowledge resource.

And best of all: at the end of the 12 weeks, everyone has acquired an expanded network and achieved their learning goal!

What we learn in 12 weeks:

  • How to demonstrate and share our knowledge and expertise (overcome silos) and support each other
  • How to build and maintain subject-based networks 
  • How to develop a professional and positive approach to social media
  • How to achieve our personal goals

Trusting give and take

Sharing is caring – and it really is. When we share our knowledge and network, everyone benefits. But we shouldn’t expect a 1:1 return on our investment; WOL is also an attitude, since we don’t necessarily receive anything in return from the individual we have helped, but we do get something back from the network. This creates trust in the network, which extends to all of its members.

Who already uses WOL?

These companies all place their trust in WOL: Bosch, Daimler, Bayer, Deutsche Bahn, Siemens, Merck, Bechtle, SWR, DHBW, BMAS, Eppendorf, Thyssen Krupp, ABB, Haniel, to name but a few. In addition, medium-sized and small enterprises in all sectors and even public authorities, clubs and associations are all using the WOL method. 

By doing so, they are enabling their employees and managers to acquire skills that are indispensable for maintaining and expanding competitiveness in the current and future world of work!
