Start the New Year by setting aside time to empower yourself and your relationships. Learn how organizations and businesses around the world are “thinking smarter with circles.”
Dynamic Governance (aka Sociocracy) is an elegantly simple, innovative change from conventional business methods. We encourage you to bring several people from your organization. Bring your actual work issues. Learn tools to get things done!
In the workshop you will:
·        Use collaborative decision-making, not consensus or win/lose voting.
·        Experience how everyone can have a real voice in decision-making.
·        Design power structures that foster creativity, reduce tension and prevent burnout.
·        Learn to have fewer, shorter, meetings, heighten productivity and increase commitment
·        Engage and empower both paid staff and volunteers.
