Facilitator Training

If you have experienced dynamic governance (aka “sociocracy”) and want to grow it in your organization, this course is for you.
 
Valuable for:
●      Organization or company leaders.
●      People who have been elected to facilitate a circle and want to deepen their skills.
●      Users of dynamic governance (DG) who want to improve their skills in meeting participation and deepen their understanding of DG concepts.
 
Participants will:
●      Explore advanced DG structures and processes.
●      Plan meetings and facilitate DG decision-making processes, with coaching.
●      Practice handling challenging facilitation situations.
●      Get support in facilitating DG in their own organization.
●      Receive the instruction and some of the practice time needed for certification as DG facilitator.
●      Get to know others who are using and learning DG.
 
Prerequisite:
Basic knowledge about DG such as Introduction to Sociocracy or equivalent training or experience. Contact us if you’re not sure whether you have enough basic knowledge.
 
Course Format:
Six interactive teleclass sessions of two hours each.
 
Note:
●      There will be up to two hours of between-class homework assignments. In addition, each student is strongly encouraged to practice facilitation with a group outside of class time. You may already have a group with whom you can practice; otherwise we will assist you to set one up.
●      We will record all sessions so that you can listen if you miss a class. Students who attend at least four classes and offer evidence that they have made up the other two classes will receive a certificate of participation.
●      The class will be limited to 12 participants.
 
In-House Dynamic Governance Facilitation Option:
We will conduct Dynamic Governance Facilitation “in-house” by special arrangement. The required workshop contact time and between-class assignments can be scheduled to meet your organization’s needs and objectives. In-house training is an excellent method for building facilitation capacity and effective leadership within your organization. To learn more about our in-house training option or to set up a program at your organization, please contact us.
