Sociocracy Leadership Training
The use of sociocracy as the governance system and form of decision making in communities is growing. In the last few weeks I have talked to members of Champlain Valley Cohousing, Ten Stones Cohousing and East Village Cohousing in Vermont, Belfast Cohousing in Maine, Cambridge Cohousing in Massachusetts all of whom use some or most of the elements of sociocracy. I am hopeful that since the 2015 Durham National Cohousing Conference where Diana Leafe Christian and I presented several workshops, that sociocracy is now a clear option for communities considering/reconsidering their governance systems.
Information about sociocracy is available at the websites of Sharon Villines , The Sociocracy Consulting Group and my new project, Sociocracy for All .
Sociocracy For All has just launched its latest project, Sociocracy Leadership Training (SoLT). See the 2 min video explanation https://youtu.be/_4ELOmKfUdY, and more info on the SoLT webpage http://www.sociocracyforall.org/solt in the sociocracyforall.org website.
It is a 12-week sociocracy immersion learning program, done remotely and by *doing *sociocracy in a pop-up organization that we are setting up for
people. Anyone anywhere in the world who can make the commitment and speaks English can apply. This is an innovative way of teaching governance, and I hope we can spread learning quickly and effectively. We noticed that we can talk and talk about sociocracy and people are convinced that sociocracy sounds good, but they don’t understand it until they actually make decisions by consent. We want to give people that experience. SoLT is the
best way we can think of to give affordable, practical access to this experience to people, and through the SoLT project they can even contribute to the spread of sociocracy!
This is a great opportunity for anyone in communities that might benefit from sociocracy, It has been working great for us in Pioneer Valley
Cohousing for more than 3 years.
