Sociocracy – circles, rounds and consent | Feb. 21

Lynn Englund, local Sociocracy trainer, presents on Thurs., Feb.  21, 2019 the three foundational tools that are part of this common governance system that’s used in some self-managed cohousing communities.

These tools are: rounds, circles and the practice of consent in small group decision-making.

Informal networking will happen during the potluck that precedes the program.

Registration is open now. Optional potluck at 6 pm, program at 6:45 pm.

“I would love meetings if they didn’t have people…”

Does your group have lofty ambitions but struggle with making and following through on decisions? Learn the basics of Sociocracy, a system that distributes authority and helps groups to optimize their meeting time. This form of decision-making and governance allows all voices to be heard.

  • Potluck 6:00 pm
  • Program at 6:45 pm  

Location: Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, 420 Cedar Lake Road, Minneapolis
