Holacracy Taster Workshop
Wed 26 April 2017, 13:00 – 17:00 BST
Organisations are the most powerful force on the planet, and the management hierarchy has been the dominant method of organising them for the past century. But the traditional top-down hierarchy wasn't designed for the fast-paced interconnected world we live in today, and when would-be leaders are stifled by an obsolete bureaucracy, everyone suffers.
Holacracy is an alternative - a complete, scalable system for structuring a company without a traditional management hierarchy, yet with more clarity, accountability, and agility. Holacracy's governance process allows a company to continually evolve its structure and rules in response to the wisdom of its workforce. And Holacracy's distributed structure empowers everyone with clear autonomy and clear responsibilities.
Hundreds of companies around the world have now adopted Holacracy; come and learn why and experience a radical new way to structure an agile, purpose-driven company.
The programme includes the following:
Introduction to Holacracy, what it is and how it’s structured.
Simulation of a tactical meeting: how to triage operational issues quickly and reliably.
Simulation of a governance meeting: how to evolve the organisation’s structure to better align the work to the company’s purpose.
Debriefs, discussion and Q&A to dive into the learning from the simulations.
Opportunity for informal networking & discussion.
The purpose of this half-day workshop is to give you an experiential taster of what working with Holacracy looks like.
Who is it for?
Organisational decision-makers interested in getting a taste of how Holacracy works.
Executives exploring if Holacracy is a good fit for their organisation.
Consultants who are interested in the latest methods of self-management.
To get the most out of this workshop, it is advised to read the book ‘Holacracy’ by Brian Robertson or watch this introduction video prior to attending: http://www.holacracy.org/intro
This workshop is an experiential taster into the world of Holacracy. We cover a great deal of content in 4 hours and begin to explore the levels of change that Holacracy can bring about including power distribution, getting things done and cultural shifts.

What people have said:
“Great introduction to a challenging but important concept”
“Sally ran an insightful workshop on Holacracy governance meetings which I was lucky enough to attend.

Not only was Sally's workshop hugely informative and relevant but great fun as well! Keep up the good work!”
