The Sociocracy Movement

Sociocracy has been driven by a vision of social change from the beginning, a thread that continues in the present. Since Gerard Endenburg, sociocracy has been merging ideas from the Quakers (everyone’s voice matters), engineering (feedback loops and continuous improvement) as well as natural systems (nesting of semi-autonomous systems). Since the early days, sociocracy has grown, has been blended with other methods, and yet, the core is still the same: a non-coersive system that is based on trust and empowerment as well as equality.

SoFA is well-connected with other players in the field, from some regional centers, related branches, as well as holacracy and other teal practitioners and trainers. We are striving to contribute to a pluralist, cooperative learning community that embodies the values of sociocracy: helping each other, appreciating differences and finding the both-and in a non-competitive way. (For more information on the movement, read Sociocracy: The movement.)
