Do you want to get things done and have more fun?
Experience Sociocracy - a whole systems design for self-governance based on equivalence, transparency and effectiveness.
Explore relevant real-world examples of governance by design applicable to all types of organizations.
Learn how to:
- Have more enjoyable, efficient and productive meetings
- Make better decisions
- Incorporate individual perspectives and contributions into group decisions
- Optimize group skill, intelligence and wisdom
- Recognize and integrate multiple roles of group members
This two-day workshop will be highly experiential, drawing on participants' own organizational needs and experiences. We will engage directly with issues of governance structure, process, issues, and solutions and learn by doing - applying sociocracy in small and large group exercises.
Participants will receive a thorough introduction to the values, principles and practical skills of excellent governance. Members of any kind of organization - community-based/grassroots, non-profit, for-profit, educational, governmental, and more - will learn to design and facilitate for high engagement, clear decisions, and commitment to action.
Good governance is no accident - we create it by design, including greater creativity, faster adaptation, higher commitment, fewer and better meetings, and improved focus on organization vision, mission and aims.
An evening introductory session on Sociocracy and governance by design will be held Friday, October 5, from 6-8:30 pm. Come learn the basics - values, principles, and fundamental practices of this powerful approach to community building, collaboration, and decision-making. Cost is $20 for pre-registration by September 17th and $25 after September 17th. Introductory session attendees who want to learn more can register for the full weekend workshop at the last chance early registration rate of $325.
