Medicine Wheel Tool Workshop

The beauty of this simple tool is that by learning one tool, it will work for you in so many team, organization, community, family, and leadership situations. Keeping it simple is one of our guiding beliefs. This goes right along with ‘if we use a simple to understand tool, we can handle complexity…the more complex the tools, the less effective they are in handling complexity’. The Medicine Wheel Tool is a multi-purpose tool that functions as a navigational compass for leadership and organizational development. As a multi-purpose tool, it functions as a framework for coaching, problem clarification, generation of solutions, project development, project turn around and so much more.

What is the Medicine Wheel Tool?

The Medicine Wheel Tool is one of the 11 key components of the Genuine Contact program. This tool is based on the medicine wheel used by Indigenous Peoples around the world and given for use in the world by all races by a group of native elders in 1987. Native peoples around the world had preserved the knowledge of the medicine wheel as a way of understanding life and communities and how to make adjustments as needed. As the story goes, the ‘Red Race’ was given the responsibility of preserving the medicine wheel by the Creator until the time was right to share the tool with the other races for the benefit of the whole human race. The time has come. Evidence of what is known as the Medicine Wheel is found in even the oldest cave art and in Indigenous people around the world, depicting a circle divided into four quadrants seeming to represent north, south, east and west.

The Medicine Wheel Tool is rooted in these ancient traditions and provides an opportunity for working within a holistic framework in a variety of applications in both business and life. Learn more.
