Inspired by leadership principles of the Yukaghir people of Siberia the magic circle is a technique to break down staff hierarchies and create equal authority in an organisation when working together on a current challenge. Cultural heritage organisations can use this tool to include and empower staff members as well as to harvest the knowhow of different professions with practical experience from within the organisation, when facing both major and minor challenges.
