Are you frustrated with ineffective meetings, challenging team dynamics, or organizational disfunction?

Do you want to:
Learn to become more effective together?
Get things done and have more fun?

Effective, adaptable, thriving communities, projects, and organizations… is the vision many of us have in common. Good governance is no accident. We create it, by design.

Join us for this month's Living in Community Salon hosting John Schinnerer from the Sociocracy Consulting Group to lean some technologies that can transform the way you get things done in teams with Dynamic Governance and Sociocracy. Sociocracy is on the cutting edge of helping to maximize individual and group potential and make the world a better place through excellence in organizational design.

Systems for decision-making and governance can support your community or organization by valuing and improving what already works and transforming what doesn’t.
• Build Capacity
• Improve Outcomes
• Create Harmony
• Reduce Overhead
• Distribute Authority
• Work On What Matters

Enable your teams to lead their own work. Value and use change to innovate rapidly. Generate an organization that can run itself.

In this evening seminar we will introduce the concepts and some tools of Dynamic Governance and Sociocracy that can help you build a highly productive and synergized community, team, business, or organization. There will be some hands on experience, as well as time for discussion to address specific questions and comments from participants.
