This two-day intensive training gives you the essential tools for applying sociocracy (dynamic governance) in your existing or forming organization. This interactive, experiential workshop includes:

    •  Introduction to sociocratic values, principles and practices

    • Consent decision making - implementing equivalence and effectiveness

    • Circle (policy) meetings, roles, and elections - organizing work

    • Organizational structure - how to scale equivalence, consent, feedback, and transparency.

    • Operational effectiveness strategies

    • Inclusive facilitation and leadership skills

    The training will include a mix of interactive simulations, practice sessions, and exercises, presentation of essential information, and time for participant questions and feedback.
