HBS OPM Alumni Program

Keep learning and growing, together.

Confidential peer support groups are a proven model for senior executives to engage in powerful conversations about their toughest business, leadership, and personal challenges. HBS has been a pioneer in this movement with its unique on-campus living groups.  We are now extending this experience beyond campus with a Virtual Living Group.

What you’ll get from the program

A recurring structure to reinforce relationships made on campus

A space to deepen learning from the program by applying concepts at work

Peer support for your biggest challenges, opportunities, and decisions

How it works

Virtual Living Groups (VLGs) meet in a confidential setting, following a proven process, inspired by and modelled on other executive peer support programs like YPO and Entrepreneurs Organization.

A professional facilitator ensures high-value, deep sharing.

VLGs build on the Circles experiences from your unit and will continue to meet using the Circles platform.

Commitment

Clear expectations make the experience work

Feature 1

Attend all 6 initial sessions of your VLG 


Respect sessions like you do your Board of Directors. Schedule and commit to attending your Living Group’s virtual sessions that will be scheduled after finishing unit 3, barring an emergency. 

Feature 2

Come Prepared



Attend each session in a quiet place with a computer with a camera and headset. Live support will minimize any potential issues that might distract the group. 

Feature 3

Confirm the meeting schedule


After registration, your guide will reach out to confirm and agree on at least your first session date and time, and your second and third sessions, if possible.

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.
