Sociocracy and Holacracy course

Circle governance is an inspiring alternative to the win-lose approach of majority rule and to the muddled approach of not-well organized consensus. More importantly, circle governance is about more than decision making done well – it is about organizational structure that distributes authority and about the feedback processes that support the continuous evolution of individuals and the whole.

The primary approach in this workshop is to learn by doing, supported by lectures and question/answer periods. We will spend most of our time working in small groups.

The topics will include:
– overview of circle governance
– overview of organisational structure based on linked circles (teams)
– consent decision making
– generating proposals
– selection of people to leadership roles
– standard meeting format
– practice dealing with objections
– integrating nonviolent communication
– practice performance reviews
– designing circle structures
– benefits and challenges of adopting circle governance
– how to begin implementing circle governance in a variety of organisations
– history and potential future of circle governance

The course is aimed at the people who are already active in an organisation/initiative/enterprise and desire to take their present cooperation practice to a higher level, or people who are planning a new project/initiative and want to create organisation structure and decision making methods that are based on collective wisdom from the get-go.

The course will take place on October 9-11th in Hotel Europa conference center (Paadi 5, Tallinn).
