About Us

About Circl.es and The Circles System

Technology has made it all too easy to create large, crowded, dehumanizing organizations. But technology can be used to return us to a simple, ancient, truth: we are at our best in small groups. When we feel safe, connected, and heard we get more engaged, creative and accountable. We bring our full selves. We can move fast, synthesize diverse views, and make better decisions. We are agile, learning and changing faster.

The Circles System is an approach, supported by services and technology, to infuse an organization with effective small groups. It enhances what you are already doing, applying social learning to developing leaders, onboarding new hires or merging companies, 

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Culture work, developing functional or cross-functional teams. With a robust small group component, these fundamental HR programs become silo-busters, creating deep ties across diverse functions and locations. As more and more “Circle Leaders” become comfortable leading great small groups, in more spaces, the culture becomes more human, open, engaging, and effective. This unlocks a social learning dynamic so people continually help each other develop at a fraction of the cost of training workshops, 1:1 coaching or even licensing learning content.
