Imago Relationships Worldwide is a network of Imago Relationships professionals and supporters in 17 countries, with the founders and majority of members in North America.
We are still in the process of adopting sociocracy which is part of a larger transition intended to create an organization that is aligned with the values of sociocracy and Imago relationships. We have created a circle structure that is still changing (and will continue to!), and have adopted a sociocratic meeting structure for our central circle. This session will focus on our recent transitional retreat, a four day experience facilitated in a combination of sociocracy and Imago facilitation.

The ABCDE of culture change

The ABCDE of culture change

“I remember the first time I noticed meetings there were different. It was one of those moments when you say something and then notice it is true when I heard myself say: “I am leaving the meeting more refreshed than I came, more inspired and feeling more connected to everyone in this group.” That was the moment I realized this is much bigger than just a way to make decisions. Feeling more connected and getting things done, that was new to me.”

How could Sociocracy help us reinvent our world in a context of complexity?

How could Sociocracy help us reinvent our world in a context of complexity?

Never had there been so much complexity in our world, even before Corona. Running organisations was proving increasingly difficult due to the complexity they were operating under. Partly this was because the methods we were using were never designed to run organisations in complexity. Leadership in complexity requires a completely different set of tools from conventional leadership. VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) also demands a completely different mindset.
