Effective Collective with Sociocracy - with Erin Young
Sat. 1 April 2017, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm AEST
Achieving our dreams and visions for a world that cares for earth, people, spirit and fair share of abundance and resources requires dynamic and effective organisation. This form of organisation is designed with transparency, effectiveness and equal-value, governed by a resilience resembling nature’s inherently sophisticated feedback loops, and provides connection, trust and fulfillment.
Sociocracy is a social technology for the governance and facilitation of these groups and organisations. Based on circle process, the methodology allows a clarity of group purpose on macro and micro levels, bringing together all elements of the system through a balanced “power-with” autonomy. Founded on the both/and approach, Sociocracy allows for both flat-structure at the appropriate level and a hierarchy of focus. Each person is invited to become a leader in their domain of influence, collaboratively deciding on operational policy in semi-autonomous self-organising groups in order to achieve the organisational mission.
This workshop provides participants with an interactive introduction of this transformative governance methodology. Explore the parallels and application of permaculture principles and ethics through Sociocracy’s agile approach for facilitating effective whole-systems organisation.
