Sociocracy, co-creation and facilitator training

A course for leaders, facilitators, teams and other people, who want collaboration to be driven by inspiration & commitment rather than obligation. Participate in the weekend to learn the basics. Stay for the full length of the course to get in-depth training.


What is this course about?

Sociocracy is also called “Dynamic governance” because the organizational structure is flexible and changes according to the needs of the organization. In this course, you’ll discover how to supports teams, workgroups and communities to collaborate in a way that’s perceived by people as healthy, empowering and productive.

Unlike traditional structures where content and direction are often accidentally controlled, Sociocracy brings the group’s collective intelligence into play and ensures that all perspectives are heard. As the decision-making process is fast, this method prevents long tiring debates between opposing views. Instead, synergy and collaboration are increased with training, thereby also productivity.

You will leave with a complete understanding of sociocracy, how it relates to various leadership styles and trained in the functions needed to implement it in your team. Teams, working groups, and communities who participate together will have the option to implement sociocracy in their team during the course.


What to expect

During the full course you will learn about:

Sociocracy implementation

You will achieve a basic understanding of what sociocracy is, how to implement it and the advantages and challenges you would face if it was implemented in your organisation. 

Sociocratic roles

You will get trained in the basic roles of the circle (≈ team) and learn how to change roles, so it’s clear when you are giving your personal contribution to a situation and when you are the leader/facilitator.

Sociocratic facilitation

You will get a basic training in sociocratic facilitation and learn how to focus the energy of a group, when you are in the role of a leader or facilitator.
