At Sociocracy for All’s 5th Annual
Global Sociocracy Conference 2022

Sociocracy and personal development —Pia Rohn, Sheella Mierson, John Schinnerer, Jerry Koch-Gonzalez and Toby Leugger

? This presentation will be in English.

Does success with sociocracy require personal development of those involved? What do different people experience when they realize their voice really matters? What challenges does our win-lose culture raise for people in a sociocratic organization? Join our panel conversation exploring how human personal development interacts with sociocracy! We will be soliciting questions from participants as well as sharing personal stories relevant to the topic.

Pia Rohn

I’ve worked several years as a consultant for kindergartens, thinking it was my life’s passion. Realizing that this was no longer the right place for me, I’m looking out to find a new one. At the moment I am very interested in “new” ways of working and living, and in using social media to share knowledge. At SoFA I’m involved in the German-speaking SozFA circle and the Social Media circle.
