We the People - Experience Sociocracy in Action

A session at Spark the Change

Thursday 3rd July, 2014

2:00pm to 3:30pm (GMT)

Sociocracy is being talked about a lot at the moment – but even for those who have read about it – the question that often comes up is “Yes, but what does that look like”.

This session is designed to give people a hands-on experience of working in a sociocratic manner. In particular, we will show how leadership is distributed, how decisions are made and action plans formed.

As well as a highly practical demonstration of a few methods and tools, the session offers an insight as to whether sociocracy appeals to you and might be helpful to your organisation. Finally, the topics we cover should result in some useful takeaways in terms of changes you want to prioritise in your day-to-day work.

Participants will gain:
* Practical hands-on experience of some sociocratic processes
* Tips or techniques to apply immediately in the workplace
* A very general overview of what sociocracy is and its relevance in the current climate of change and the role of busines
* A group action plan to spark change beyond the conference.
