Samantha, With 17 people, you may want 2 circles to start. Get everyone a starting role w/ a purpose or accountability, or use Stephan's discovery process or something like that.

 

17 people is a pretty big GCC and can be unwieldy even if you have professional expert facilitation, so that is why I would consider starting w/ 2 circles instead of 1.
