Event Details

You’ve heard of sociocracy and you’re ready to learn it? This sociocracy beginner training is for you!

Join this 3hours sociocracy beginner training on Mon 20th June 3-5pm! In this workshop, we will give you an overview of the basic concepts of sociocracy also known as Dynamic Governance:

-how we make effective decisions

-how we empower and connect teams

-how to continuously improve processes over time.

Exercises and role-plays let everyone experience the clarity, consideration, and flow that sociocracy brings. You will leave with a big picture of the possibilities, practical tools to start using right away, and a vivid experience of what a Sociocratic group feels like. A third of the time will be on presentations, another third on practical exercises and the last third on reflection and Q&A.
