There is a day workshop on Sociocracy, in Brighton on 24 Feb led by practitioner, trainer and writer Ted J Rau on a rare visit from the US. Ted co-founded Sociocracy for Alland co-wrote the Sociocracy manual Many Voices One Song.
Sociocracy is a system for organising together effectively, based on inclusion and efficiency. We use it in Sussex Cohousing. This workshop - for people with some experience or none - will really boost your understanding of Sociocracy and ways to work together.
We use Sociocracy for our decision-making. It is decision-making by consent - an inclusive approach that makes iteasier to reach agreements than consensus -and a team-based structure that gives people autonomy and influence in the organisation.
