ITW is a non-profit private school and the main ingredients of the operating culture are Solution Focused Approach (Steve deShazer/Insoo Kim Berg), Nonviolent Communication (Marshall Rosenberg) and Spiral Dynamics integral (Don Beck/Christopher Cowan) extended by elements of Teal practices in last couple of years. While training NVC and SDi with all teachers and students, it seemed a natural and helpful step to adopt the framework of S3.0 to add clarity and orientation in our Flex-Flow transition organization. Today, major parts of the school organization are based on sociocracy including all students.

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.
