Our vision is to power YOUR Circles.
You are experts on your people.
We can bring them together.
Here are some examples of partners that use the Circl.es System™️ with their own content and facilitation:
The Aspen Institute sponsors fellowships in many sectors, with a theme of moving mid-career leaders from “success to significance.” In 2020, unable to hold their annual conference in Aspen, 450 Fellows met for a week of powerful conversations, led by 39 Aspen moderators, on Circles. They are now combining Aspen’s curated content and unmatched moderators with the Circl.es platform to scale this transformative experience and reach many more upcoming leaders.
“[Circl.es] enabled the moderators to have intimate, absorbing dialogues about issues of racial and gender inequity in this pandemic period with virtual hugs no less. Absolutely wizard.”
–Keith Burwick (age 90), Aspen moderator
The Ken Blanchard Companies
The Ken Blanchard Companies have been equipping & inspiring leaders for decades with the most widely taught leadership model & flagship program SLII™. Their suite of leadership & coaching programs are now powered by The Circles Peer Learning Platform to enable virtual group coaching, intact team accelerators & coaching, and facilitated or peer-directed digital learning journeys.
“Online sessions must be engaging and memorable if they are to be transformative. Circles will enhance the interactivity of our comprehensive suite of digital offerings, enabling learners to make the most of each experience,”
–Scott Blanchard, President of The Ken Blanchard Companies
LifeLabs Learning is a go-to resource for lab-based, research-driven leadership solutions that ignite ‘tipping point’ savvy leaders, powerful teams & inclusive organizations. Inspired to offer ‘good in the world’ during times of immense change, LifeLabs Pops United Circles were formed as an avenue to connect People Ops People around the world with one another.
“We had a fantastic experience collaborating with the Circl.es team (and Circl.es is a seriously impressive platform). Our goal was to create rich learning experiences for our community and Circl.es made that happen!”
– Robyn Long, Direct of Growth at LifeLabs Learning.
Millennium.org is building a community of teaching professionals that are passionate about social-emotional learning. They have content, experienced facilitators, and a deep understanding from research and practice that informed Millennium Forum. This program carefully matches teachers across North America into circles of eight that meet monthly to learn together and support each other. It has proven impact. (link to blog post about that) Millennium has also helped other educators, administrators, and communities create their own Circl.es programs.
“As an early Circl.es partner, we’ve seen the technology advance tremendously. The team’s top priority is helping us scale powerful, intimate, authentic forum spaces.”
– Jeff Snipes, Millennium.org founder

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.
