The Open Office Circle (OFC) enables people to share their work experiences and receive feedback from other teammates. The process takes courage as one has to confess his previous mistakes and highlight some of the milestones achieved as well. The colleagues help him grow from the missteps while also learning from his success. The article details HOW the OFC works and WHY it culminates in the quality of work and trust in an organization.
