Event description
In this immersive 16-hour course, participants will learn the skills to run meetings more efficiently and productively using sociocracy.

About this Event

In this immersive online workshop, participants will learn the basics of sociocracy as well as how to apply the sociocratic method to run more efficient and productive meetings. Sociocracy brings about more transparent and sustainable decision making and encourages full participation, ensuring every voice is heard.

Using this method, participants are able to use their skills more productively, take responsibility, and thus better establish and contribute to achieving their team's shared goals. This results in meetings that are more effective and productive as well as shorter and more relaxed. This method is useful for meetings held by organizations, companies, projects, or other initiatives.

Participants will learn:

  • Sociocratic discussion and circle assembly basics
  • Consent principle in the decision-making process
  • The four basic principles of the sociocratic approach
  • How to establish a common aim as the focus for shared goal-oriented decisions

Learning format

The online training is broken up into multiple dates, allowing for reflection between segments. The trainers will share case studies drawn from their combined 20+ years of sociocracy training as well as participatory exercises based on practical examples, development of implementation strategies, and possible applications for participants' own intended practice.
