OPEN – Dynamic Governance Weekend Workshop with John Schinnerer

An intimate two-day custom workshop on Dynamic Governance a.k.a. Sociocracy.

SEPT 29, 1pm -5pm
SEPT 30, 8am - 12pm

Total group size for this training is limited to 12, so, if you're interested, register now.

This is an 'introductory' workshop but most people attending will have at least some experience with Dynamic Governance.

PREREQUISITE: Assigned reading and self-study prior to the workshop is required to attend.

Sessions will consist of both lecture and interactive exercises where we will use real-life examples to learn about:

~ How to form proposals

~ Making group decisions

~ Setting up and running 'Circles' and 'Sub-Circles' and how they interconnect

~ Key Dynamic Governance concepts such as "Paramount Argued Objections" and 'Log Books."

~ And more

If you missed John's full-day pre-conference workshop at the National Cohousing Conference in June, here's your chance.

    I thought it was very interesting, that John was excellent, and I enjoyed incorporating Dynamic Governance thinking and structure. I will need time to make it truly a part of myself

    I was only able to go to one day of event AND it was enlightening and enlivening. John knows his subject thoroughly, brings relevant personal experience AND knowledge/expertise from complimentary disciplines that relate to Dynamic Governance. Thanks for opportunity.

    Golly, I really wish that this had been posted EARLIER so I could have rearranged rehearsal schedule. It's even happening in me NeighborHood!! Attended the intro workshop DURING the Cohousing Conference and was REALLY impressed with John's work and the small amount of creative investigation/exploration we did....I get it that 2 days is optimal and best for community making as experience is gleaned with the process. However, if workshop is NOT full up, would like chance to be IN Group for "part" of event, if that works at all....Met some of you briefly at Natl CoHousConven and Dan, good to meet up with you at Michael S's Bday jam. small world, yes!
