When team members feel their voices are heard, the work is self-managed, and the culture is inclusive... improved retention is a natural result.
The wisdom of the crowd produces decisions the crowd fully supports. The sociocracy process uncovers objections that would otherwise remain hidden.
When teams arrive at decisions together, it's energizing! No one leaves a meeting feeling unheard. Meetings become fun and productive.
Sociocracy creates an environment of listening and leading with love. Yes humans have work to get done AND love and listening makes everything better.
When everyone consents to a decision, there is no time lost revisiting the same issues or worse becoming fractured or disfunctional.
Sociocracy's double linking ensures representation throughout the organization's decision making. Actively inviting objections encourages transparent sharing.

This 16 hours of training alternates explanations, interactive exercises, experiential learning, as well as time for questions and personal reflections.
You will complete the course with clear methods and practice for improving the effectiveness (and joy) of meetings, which often leads to them also being shorter and more relaxed. This method is useful for meetings held by organizations, companies, projects, families and other initiatives.
After completing Module 1, you and other participants in your cohort are invited to form a Community of Practice for facilitators that may include documenting and discussing your facilitation experiences. Module 1 is a prerequisite for taking Module 2. If you do go on to take Module 2, you are encouraged to continue attending a Community of Practice for facilitators.
Effective meeting facilitation is a skill that pays dividends for life!
Sociocracy is Transforming Society
Join us on our quest to transform society. All transformation starts with ourselves, then like all patterns in life, expands outwards in a circle pattern until the ripples we create impact the far corners of our world. If you just implemented these techniques within your family, your life would be transformed. Then when you bring them to your closet working relationships, you will soon realize how amazing it feels and works and will be on fire to share it with the world.
