Sociocracy?

Many modern organisations are looking for ways to become more agile, lean, „teal“ or self-organised in order to foster self-responsibility of employees, use their collective intelligence and improve their identification. The quest for „purpose“ and autonomy of the other younger generations requires a culture change in many established companies.

Holacracy and Sociocracy offer promising frameworks for self-organisation with step-by-step instructions on how to achieve that in practice.

Sociocracy 3.0 is the latest version out of this 60 years evolved tradition. S3 is fully agile as a modular pattern approach, that enables organisations to co-create highly individual structures, flow of information, hierarchy, bottom-archy, roles, circles and links, that fit their situation and needs.

S3 has a full bag of tips and tricks to make meetings more effective and how to improve the collaboration within and in between teams.

Influences from Nonviolent Communication are at the center of S3 now and conflict prevention is thus preprogrammed. On top of that S3 has a full bag of tips and tricks to make meetings more effective and how to improve the collaboration within and in between teams.

The training, like sociocracy itself, works a lot with creative participation. Our trainings are constantly evolving and we collect feedback every day to adapt to the needs and interests of our participants.

Quotes from previous participants

„Sociocracy is like an update for our mental operating system“ (2016)

“This seminar brought the Principles of Sociocracy 3.0 to the audience not only by it’s content but also by the way the content was delivered. Even „dry material“ is well digested thanks to energizers and an easy going workshop leader.” (2017)
