Welcome to Four Circles!

Four Circles is a simple but powerful exercise that has been used successfully by thousands of people to find greater harmony among the different parts of their lives. It was developed by Stew Friedman, who has taught at the Wharton School since 1984. Four Circles is one of the many tools described in his new book, Leading the Life You Want: Skills for Integrating Work and Life, which builds on his bestseller, Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life. The purpose of Total Leadership is to improve performance at work, at home, in the community, and for the private self (mind, body, spirit) by creating mutual value among these four life domains—to produce what we call four-way wins®.
