How did today’s session go? How do the sessions in your circle go in general? Did they become valuable when you implemented a change?

You can easily gather and analyze the data for these questions, using the survey feature. Here is what you need to know:

STEP 1: Use the surveys in your session

STEP 2: Analyse your data


  1. The participant survey
  2. The facilitator survey

STEP 1: Use the surveys in your session

To make it easy for you and your peers to access the survey, it is a built in feature of the Circles technology.

  1. When creating your agenda, or when editing the agenda in the Circles space, you can prepare a ‘Group Survey’ button in your agenda. But you can also open it on the go via the left hand side menu.
  2. Trigger the survey by clicking the button in your agenda, or selecting ‘Group Survey’ in your left hand side menu.
  1. A pop-up window will open in your Circles space. Each circle member will be able to individually select whether they facilitated today’s session or participated in it.
  1. Matching their selection, each circle member will subsequently be shown be shown the facilitator survey or the participant survey.
  1. Clicking the x on the top right of the survey window will only close the survey for the person who clicked it. This way, each person can take as much time as they need to complete the survey.

STEP 2: Analyze your data

Go to your My.Circles Dashboard to consult your data. In the History & Metrics section, you can find the numerical scores, averages and evolution over time and selecting an individual circle and session, you can read the feedback each participant left.


  1. The participant survey consists of 4 easy but useful questions:
    1. How valuable was today’s meeting?
      1 = not at all valuable, 10 = extremely valuable
    2. Why? 
    3. Please assess your facilitator on how well they facilitated today’s meeting:
      1 = very poor, 10 = excellent
    4. Why?
  1. The facilitator survey goes beyond to work as a tool for more analysis and allow for easy communication with Circles:
    1. Rate your performance as a facilitator during today’s session
      1 = very poor, 10 = excellent
    2. Why?
    3. How valuable was today’s meeting?
      1 = not at all valuable, 10 = extremely valuable
    4. Why?
    5. What was most valuable for the circle?
    6. What needs improvement?
      (Agenda, structure, technology, training, or other)
    7. Technology status: How was the video platform experience?
      1 = Major issues, meeting had little to no value as a result
      2 = Many higher priority issues, meeting was severely affected
      3 = Several low to medium level issues, was distracting the meeting
      4 = Some minor issues, did not greatly affect the meeting experience
      5 = No issues. Everything worked great!
    8. Any tech issues you would like to highlight?
    9. If applicable, who is the next Facilitator?

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.
