Book Review

The Circle Way: A Leader in Every Chair by Christina Baldwin and Ann Linnea (Foreword by Margaret J. Wheatley. 2010: Berrett-Koehler Pub. CA)

The authors of the book maintain: "Circle gives us space to sit down in our not knowing, to hear each other out, and to hold on to the story while taking the next step forward." This book is about a way to meet in groups and have every voice heard. It requires some preparation and an invitation. The authors use the term “host” instead of ‘the usual “facilitator.” A facilitator, they say, is expected to stay outside the process, and a host enters into it. The book has success stories from business, health care, education, and non-profit organizations to help readers understand how it can work.

Human trafficking is a global phenomenon that enslaves women, men, and children into situations of forced labor, debt bondage, and sexual servitude. Human trafficking is wide spread in many products’ supply chains, including products sold in the United States. For example, the United States imports 80-90% of its seafood, and tens of thousands of people are exploited at every link in the seafood harvesting and production chain. This exploitation occurs through abusive recruitment practices, as well as slavery at sea and in seafood processing plants.
