Event description
Participatory ways of working: An introduction to Sociocracy and consent-based decision-making.

About this Event

Sociocracy is an alternative to more traditional, more hierarchical ways of organising. It’s used by many organisations around the world, and is one of the common ways to implement more participatory ways of working (Teal, Agile etc). Using this method helps get buy-in from team members at every level of an organisation, so people really understand why they are working towards a goal.

This session is based on real-life experience of implementing the approach, in organisations in which the facilitators have been involved. The session will give you a practical hands-on taster of one of the core components of the approach: making decisions by consent (an alternative to diktat or consensus).

“Thanks for a great workshop. Thought-stimulating and uplifting on a personal, practical and strategic level. I’m looking forward to finding out more and implementing.”

Who is it aimed at
