Circl.es Partners With The Ken Blanchard Companies

Circles is pleased to join The Ken Blanchard Companies in announcing our partnership. The following is an excerpt from last week’s press release…

The Ken Blanchard Companies®, a global leader in management training, consulting, and coaching, announced today that it will be partnering with Circl.es to offer differentiated virtual and inclusive experiences using The Circl.es System.

The unique setting and features of Circl.es take small groups out of the day-to-day and into intentional dialogue about their most important issues and challenges. Blanchard plans to leverage the power of Circl.es for group coaching experiences, team acceleration, and small-group peer-learning programs. Blanchard envisions that once these Circles gel, they continuously meet to apply and practice, engaging over months instead of days. Blanchard will also offer curated meeting templates that can easily be scaled across organizations that bring Circl.es to their organizations.

“Online sessions must be engaging and memorable if they are to be transformative. Circl.es will enhance the interactivity of our comprehensive suite of digital offerings, enabling learners to make the most of each experience,” said Madeleine Homan Blanchard, chief coaching architect, The Ken Blanchard Companies.

Dan Hoffman, Circl.es founder, added, “Human connection has always been important in development programs, and those lucky enough to have a Blanchard learning experience often value the relationships they build as much as the skills they acquire. In today’s virtual world, a system to foster human connection has become a must-have.”

In a world of physical distance, circles facilitate authentic human connection.

In a circle, 3-12 participants contribute equally, share openly, and push each other to act.

We spent years with academics and practitioners, honing best practices and building a technology platform. Our circles have helped scale peer learning, sustain manager and leadership development, move live training online, onboard new employees, support career development, teach collaboration, and build community.

We’ve been grateful for the support and the referrals from our large corporate partners, schools, and communities who have been hiring us to help design, facilitate and manage Circles programs.

In order to keep up with the interest in our system and technology, please help us understand your needs by answering a few questions.
