Peeling the Onion on Whole System Intelligence: A Webinar Introduction to Sociocracy

June 1, 2022 - online

Simple in principle and treacherous in application, is how founder Gerard Endenburg describes the Sociocratic Circle Method (SCM).

  • How do we teach and learn design thinking?
  • How do we apply both/and thinking to flat & hierarchical organisations?
  • How do we steer organisations with sensitivity rather than force?

This webinar is an active exploration of some meaningful answers through the SCM.

“Watching a group of people in the same business with differences of opinion make decisions they all agree to in 15-20 minutes is a powerful thing. After seeing that, new people will want to learn it.”
– Joe Garrison, Co-owner, Blue Scorcher Bakery & Cafe cooperative

Join us to learn about a whole-systems approach to collaborative decision-making, project management, and organizational governance. This approach creates a more inclusive, effective, self-managing culture, where good ideas can come from any part of the organization.

The methods we will explore in this webinar have been tested for more than five decades, including during times of crisis – when we most need agility. We’ll tell you about a few of those times.

You’ll get a taste of some of the processes and structures that generate and support adaptive, effective organizations.
