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.
We are observers and participants of a paradigm shift in management. More and more attention is focused on dynamic governance, which slowly, but inevitably replaces the so-called traditional management, hierarchical in the power-over meaning of the word. Different names are being used to describe organizations operating under the new model.
