  • What We Do

    We're on a mission to connect you to like minded peers to help you reach your goals, through growing, developing and nurturing your networks through Working Out Loud circles.


    Circles are a kind of peer support group where you develop the habit of working out loud while building a network related to a goal you care about .

    John Stepper

    Mission: Help people feel better about work

    "After years of trying to make work more effective and fulfilling, I’ve discovered how to help people take control of their careers and lead more satisfying lives. It’s called “working out loud.”

    Working out loud is working in an open, generous, connected way so you can build a purposeful network, become more effective, and access more opportunities.

    The good news is that anyone can learn how to do it. Most people, though, find it difficult to get started or to develop new habits that will allow them to realize the benefits."

    Circle Guides - the step by step process

    "...there’s even more of an imperative to help people find meaning and fulfillment at work and in their lives. I’ve found that the best way to do that is working out loud. I’ve seen – first for myself, then for friends and colleagues I coached, and now in peer support groups around the world – how working out loud helps people become more effective, more connected, and happier."
