Our training philosophy is that In Sociocracy For All, we’re aware that skills are the key to making sociocracy work. Knowing about sociocracy is one thing but being able to make real-life improvements to our decision-making, team structure and meetings is key to positive change. It involves knowledge, practice and some re-learning. All of our practical workshops include small group exercises.
Group learning, and affordability
The only way to learn is with other people. We are aware that training one person in an organization is not enough to change the culture sustainably. For that reason, we offer group discounts for all of our training offerings. When people sign up together for the same class, each person receives a 30% discount. That way, you can have buddies to practice with – and we are excited when your skills will be used!
We offer video-led courses for study groups of small groups. The reason for that is our theory of change: we want to make sociocracy training accessible in all sectors and places on this planet. The internet and video-led courses as well as live online training gives us the widest accessibility and makes high-quality training affordable. That way, many people can benefit.
If your budget prevents you from attending a class, especially if your region differs in cost of living, please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a stipend. Our policy is that no one is turned away for lack of funds. We’d love to support you!
