In this article, we want to show you how to get started with Circles. Here are 4 easy steps for you:

STEP 1: Get in touch to start using the platform

STEP 2: Add members to your first circle

STEP 3: Send invites for your first Circles session

STEP 4: Enter your Circles meeting space


STEP 1: Get in touch

The Circles platform can be used for many different settings. We want to make it as easy as possible for you.

  1. Click on the button below and fill out the form.
  1. Within a brief period of time you will receive a personal email from one of our team members. According to what will likely work best for you, we will support you in getting onto the platform.

STEP 2: Add members to your first circle

A circle is a group of people that has its own Circles space. Each of the members has a personal join link that works like a password into the interactive video space. Your members do not need anything besides their personal links to participate. Here is how you add members to your circle:

  1. Go to your My.Circles dashboard by clicking “Log into your Circles dashboard” or by logging in at my.circl.es.
  1. When you select “Circles” in the top menu, you can access your individual circles:
  1. Select “Add members.”
  1. Add the first name, last name and email address of the person you want to add.
  1. Click “Add another person” to add multiple people at the same time. When done, click “Next” and then “Finish” on the following page.
  1. The new members now show up on your Circle overview.

STEP 3: Send invites for your first Circles session

Only persons that you invited into your circle can come into your Circles space. Using their personal join link, they can come into the Circles space at any time, for example to quickly check in with each other between official sessions. The easiest way to let your members know about a session and their personal join link is to send them the session details straight from your My.Circles dashboard:

  1. Go to your My.Circles dashboard, by logging in at my.circl.es and navigate to your circle: Select Circles in the top menu and click on the circle for which you want to schedule a session.
  1. Select “Send session details” on top of your circle’s overview.
  1. In the window that opens, select the date, time and duration of your session. Then, add a message about its purpose.
  2. Select which of your members you want to invite by ticking or unticking the box next to their name.
  1. Click “Submit” to to send an email to your selected participants that includes the following information:
  • Session details (date, time, and purpose)
  • Individual link to join the session
  • Tech best practices
  • An ‘Add to calendar’ link

NOTE: Circles spaces must be accessed on a laptop or desktop – no mobile phones.

STEP 4: Enter your Circles meeting space

  1. Head to your My.Circles dashboard by clicking the “Go to your dashboard” button or by logging in at my.circl.es.
  2. Select “Enter meeting space” in your circle or open your personal join link.
  1. Before your first Circles session, learn more about the features of the Circles space and check out our quickstart guide for facilitators.

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.
