FAQs

WHAT MAKES THE PROGRAMME UNIQUE?

Terms like ‘online course’ or ‘programme’ are useful for categorising Circles in Time, but in many exciting ways, the initiative isn’t like anything that exists today.
Here is why:

A DIFFERENT STANDARD FOR SUCCESS
Most online courses aim to teach you something. Their goal is typically either knowledge or skill acquisition. Circles in Time goes two steps further. Firstly, you need to actively apply the knowledge and skills you are learning to your personal life during the programme. Secondly, you need to integrate the personal systems you create, in a circulatory manner, as opposed to once-off, flash-in-the-pan activities, improving the chances of these systems persisting over the long run.

TIME-ZONE FRIENDLY
One challenge with running a live online course is the potential time-zone differences of different participants. As a result, many course creators have either opted for an asynchronous approach (no live workshops or lectures) or they only allow access to the narrow band of potential participants within a timezone that suits them. The mission of Circles in Time is to be globally accessible. As a result, being time-zone friendly is a core focus, so that anyone from any continent on the planet can take part.

SOCIAL AT ITS CORE
Many online courses have a social dimension to their experience. Yet, the social dimension often feels like an add-on, a feature or a box that had to be ticked. Circles in Time is social at its core. This is not just because social activities improve the experience of participants, but that a social dimension is also fundamental for any form of durable behaviour change to take place.

THE PROGRAMME IS JUST THE START
Typical online courses view course completion as an end to move participants towards. For Circles in Time, the programme is just the beginning. It is a way to provide participants with the necessary knowledge, skills and experiences so that when they enter the Circles in Time Membership Space, they can engage easily and contribute constructively to the community initiatives there.
