Live Life Healing Centre & Shinota Consulting
a two day Non-Residential workshop @ Mumbai
with James Priest, UK
Conscious Collaboration for Effective Organisation
It is divided into two day introduction and one day (optional but recommended) deepening.
The challenge before us...
Complex and fast changing environments are outpacing the capacity of organisations, communities and networks to adapt. Despite innovative alternatives for improving decision making and governance processes, a lack of adequate knowledge, understanding and skills can leave groups frustrated and falling back onto more conventional, yet ineffective ways to try and cope.
We all recognise the need for change...
We want to be sure that investing precious time into learning new ways of doing things will give us practical skills and methods we can confidently use.
We are called to develop alternative solutions for addressing old problems, and to assume a new perspective that honours our individual needs while addressing the urgency for more integrated and interdependent human organisation.
Sociocracy 3.0 - a social technology for our time...
Sociocracy 3.0 offers a reliable framework to tap collective intelligence in order for us to make more conscious and effective decisions together. It facilitates co-creativity, fosters transparency and guarantees the equivalence of all participants.
Sociocracy acts as “social technology” for unlocking ownership, engagement and a sense of purpose while promoting respect, diversity and inclusion.
It's an invitation to bring greater awareness to the underlying things that motivate us to act.
Who is this workshop for?...
This workshop is particularly suited to social transformation networks, non-profits, social enterprises and intentional communities.
During the workshop you will...
· Discover what Sociocracy 3.0 is and why it helps organisations to become more sustainable, resilient and elegant.
· Know how sociocracy’s core methodology and principles free potential and support system wide optimisation.
· Develop skills you can apply within your groups, organisations and relationships.
· Learn methods to facilitate collaborative processes, draw on the collective intelligence of groups, and guarantee the potential for equivalence in decision making.
· Develop a “solutions focus” and explore the creative opportunities lying buried at the heart of seemingly challenging situations.
More about sociocracy and Sociocracy 3.0
Sociocracy, which means “governance by peers or colleagues, is an increasingly popular system design, governance and decision-making method based on the principles of transparency, equivalence, and effectiveness. It transforms organizations culturally and structurally, enabling collective intelligence to lead the evolution of an organization, fulfilling team members while creating impressive results.
Sociocracy 3.0 builds on The Sociocratic Method and integrates principles from Holacracy and Non-Violent Communication. It:
· ...utilises people as living sensors that pick up changes and respond promptly by creating strategies to satisfy organisational needs as they arise.
· …meets organizations where they are and supports them in continuously improving work and services through a painless and iterative approach, and at their own pace.
· …helps organizations make the best use of talent already present, and enables them to grow structures for effective collaboration.
Who is using sociocracy?
Sociocracy has been applied worldwide in corporations, small businesses, non-profits and non-governmental organizations, grass-roots movements, nursing homes, colleges, eco-villages and cohousing communities, religious organizations, private schools, Agile/Lean teams and international professional and educational membership organizations.
About the workshop journey
Our journey together will focus mainly on a deep exploration of Sociocracy 3.0 principles and processes and will consist of a balanced programme with a combination of theory, practice and reflection.

What past participants say
“The most humane governance and decision making model I’ve seen so far! I rate the session 5 out 5” – Johannes Nordh.
“When I was 25-30 years old, companies tried empowered workgroups, self steering groups, collaborative decision making. In conclusion it failed, to my view, because enthusiasts believed that it could all work without governance. With sociocracy governance, it can work.” Myra Beckman
