Sociocracy 3.0

Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) Growing Organisational Agility, Navigating Complexity

Sociocracy 3.0 (also known as S3) is a free and open, principles based practical guide of patterns for people wishing to collaborate more effectively and grow happy, humane organisations. It builds on sociocratic practices, integrating principles from Agile / Lean and Non-Violent Communication and provides a rich variety of compatible options to choose from and adapt, according to unique context and needs.

S3 addresses generic complexities arising when collaboration needs to scale across multiple teams and domains and acts as a “social technology” for raising self- accountability and engagement while promoting respect, diversity and inclusion. It supports distribution of power to all, within interconnected domains of accountability, freeing people up to decide and act. It facilitates co-creativity, fosters transparency and guarantees equivalence for all concerned.

Who this course is for

  • Agile coaches and consultants
  • Leaders and managers
  • Organisational change facilitators, consultants and HR

During this workshop you will:

  • Discover what Sociocracy 3.0 is and how its various patterns provide a menu of options for organisations wishing to build resilience, adaptability and effectiveness.
  • Learn about the S3 framework and find out how its patterns and principles free potential and support system wide improvements.
  • Understand the principle of consent, appreciate its effectiveness as an alternative to consensus in decision making and learn skills in its application.
  • Develop skills you can apply within your groups, organisations and relationships.
  • Discover methods to facilitate collaborative processes, draw on the collective intelligence of groups, and guarantee the potential for equivalence in decision making.
  • Develop a “solutions focused” attitude and explore the creative opportunities lying buried at the heart of seemingly challenging situations.

About the course journey

Our journey together will focus mainly on an exploration of S3 principles and processes, consisting of a balanced programme with a combination of theory, practice and reflection. Our courses are constantly evolving based on experimentation, experience and feedback. The general trend is increasingly towards experience first, theory later. We’re excited to be sharing with you this latest iteration where we begin exploring S3 patterns in the context of individuals and teams, moving later to cross-teams and the big picture of collaboration at scale.

Course language

The course will be held in English and there will be translation support organized according to needs.

I attended a workshop on Sociocracy 3.0 and consent decision-making that James held a few months back. Since then I've had absolutely amazing results using the tools I learned from him in various teams. Consent decision-making (hand-gestures and all) have allowed those teams to make quick, well-informed decisions in a way that makes everyone feel included and engaged. I've found the mindset, principles and tools that James teaches to be immensely powerful.

A great workshop. Mindful, makes you think, reflect and make sense of the reality around you. The concepts & techniques are highly applicable in organisational environments.

James and Lili are two amazing facilitators, with an impressive experience working with teams and organizations. They have a deep understanding on Sociocracy 3.0 and their energetic and warm presence really contributed for the success of the workshop.

It was a great experience. As I said, I am very glad that a group of us came from our organisation. It was my first experience in a workshop with other people from abroad and it was great, a lot because of your beautiful facilitation. It is amazing that the contents of the workshop are exactly what we needed and I am sure we will implement a lot from S3. Personally I think that I developed a lot from the workshop.

Mor Gilboa, Executive Director, Green Course – Israel

This immersive course went much beyond my expectations. It gave me a fantastic opportunity to deepen my understanding of S3 principles and implementations through facilitated experiential processes, plus practices. This has empowered me to take my learning forwards and integrate S3 into our organisation.

Katy Momo Fox, Founder, Designer at Cell Centre for Ecological Learning – Luxembourg

The workshop has not only been informative in a very efficient way, it is also given with skills that go far beyond trainer ship. The levels of knowledge and experience in working with people, and of personal development and consciousness of the trainer made that I felt enriched in many ways. This for me turned this workshop into an extremely valuable experience.

Monique De Jong, Netherlands

The S3 course was great. I learned a lot about organisations in general and how applying S3 can make an organisation both effective and inclusive. The course was taught in a very effective way and included theoretical framework, practical details and practical sessions. Great fun and connection.

Marius Blanke, Germany

Amazing, present and super professional and skilled, but at the same time human, fun and love-full. A perfect “balance” between focused and balanced facilitation and behaviour! That´s not an easy job, especially in relation to the stress involved in facilitating a workshop as intense and demanding as this was. Demanding in a positive way.
