performance module free 2 - - Sociocracy For All


How do leadership and accountability work in a peer-based organization? Can everyone be a leader? This free class will support you in re-thinking and improving your governance and your collaborative relationships – especially if you’d like to unlock sociocracy’s potential to be more productive and effective – operational roles will be one of our big topics.

We will also highlight how we can identify what is holding us back and how to resolve those tensions.


  • Feedback loops and institutional feedback
  • Surfacing tensions
  • Operational roles

Also, we will do one group exercise where we identify an organizational tension and formulate a proposal.
