Sociocracy Workshop

With Ted Rau

March 9, 2024

Is your organization struggling with slow, frustrating decision making processes? Do you feel key voices are left out of important conversations? Do you go around in circles, with more talking than doing? Or with more doing than reflecting and listening?

Join us for an eye-opening, hands-on workshop on sociocracy – a revolutionary decision-making method that is empowering teams across the nonprofit sector.

In this practical training, you’ll learn:

  • Consent Decision-Making: How to achieve genuine agreement without majority rule so every voice is heard
  • Decentralizing Power: Foster autonomy and ownership by distributing authority across your organization
  • Productive Meetings: Facilitate efficient, collaborative meetings that build trust and drive progress

Through interactive exercises and real-play scenarios, we’ll equip you with sociocracy’s principles and tangible practices to transform how your organization makes decisions.
The result? More inclusion. Better decisions. Less frustration. And a team energized by the power to control their own destiny.

Who this class is for
  • nonprofits members and board members
  • purpose driven businesses
  • coops, activists, educators
