Sociocracy workshop at Outlandish

Hi everyone

We have had many requests for our Sociocracy workshops so we have scheduled in a few for this year and next.

We use Sociocracy as part of our business model and have done for more than 5 years. For us, getting this buy-in throughout the organisation has been invaluable and we want to share that experience and knowledge with others. Although a system in which everyone has to agree in order to make a decision sounds problematic, the evidence suggests that it’s an extremely powerful and even liberating method of governance. Sociocratic organisations have been shown to grow faster, weather problems better and be nicer places to work. We are a perfect example of how this type of decision making business model really works.

Attending this workshop you will get to grips with the principles of Sociocracy, learn the full process of making proposals and practise the skill of making consent-based decisions. You will learn enough to be able to take it back to your workplace and implement it.

At the end of workshop you will have:

  • A thorough understanding of the principles of Sociocracy and consent based-decision making

  • Practical skills to enable you to start running consent-based proposals as soon as you get back to work

  • An opportunity to ask real practitioners anything you want about Sociocracy and gain real insight in to how to make it work for you

Pete Burden and Abi Handley are delivering these workshop.

Pete is a business strategist who specialises in developing positive organisational cultures and promoting leadership throughout an organisation. He introduced Sociocracy to Outlandish and has been pivotal in supporting the development of the co-operative.

Abi is a key organiser within Outlandish. She is across programme management, finances, communications and business development and focusses much of her time in developing the communication skills across the Outlandish team.
