Sociocracy works best when all minds and hearts are open – but that’s not always the case. When there is conflict, our ability to listen and problem-solve is diminished. In this webinar, we will review all the ways in which sociocracy can support conflict resolution, and how it can be combined with other, related tools to transform conflict into an opportunity to connect and learn more about each other. Instead of interpersonal conflict resolution, we focus on what circles and organizations can do to prevent and address conflict. So this webinar is about institutional support for conflict resolution, so tools like governance agreements, conflict resolution circles, resolution groups, and how to exclude someone from a circle.
The Permacultural Collective Mandate of Alto Paraíso de Goiás, Brazil, was born with transparency, equivalence, efficiency, and a dynamic structure, capable of seeking unity within diversity. As a movement that seeks to keep people’s culture alive through caring for the Earth, caring for each other, and sharing knowledge and resources (human, natural and financial) fairly, there was no governance more appropriate to adopt than sociocracy.
