Do you want the way you run your enterprise to be aligned with your values? Do you want your decision-making processes to be inclusive and yet still efficient?
Sociocracy is a governance framework that combines decision-making, empowerment of small, agile teams and a meeting format that helps us build trust and continuous improvement. It has a resemblance with an agile mindset, people care in permaculture and participatory decision-making. In this presentation, we will try out shared decision-making in different areas: consent decision-making as a group, decision-making in linked circles, and elections sociocracy style. Everyone can participate in sociocratic processes to experience the flow and wholesomeness it brings to groups. It will be insightful, entertaining, and meaningful. Everyone will walk away with little ideas to try out immediately -- and big ideas to explore more.

About the Conscious Conversations series Our Conscious Conversations are designed to facilitate peer exchange about a specific aspect of Conscious Capitalism. Each event consists of a short panel discussion, followed by small group discussions to allow participants to share ideas, challenges and solutions. We leave plenty of time to make new connections with other conscious capitalists.
Who we are Our mission is to connect, educate and inspire leaders and workers to consciously build businesses that positively impact the world. Members of the Boston chapter of Conscious Capitalism are diverse individuals who recognize the power of capitalism to improve the human condition and create enduring value for all stakeholders. We come from organizations large and small, at different stages of our careers, from CEO to student. We’re bound by our common curiosity about these ideas and the desire to create change in organizations and society.
This event is brought to you with the special support of Impact Hub Boston.
Conscious Capitalism Chapter of Boston is a Chapter in Formation of Conscious Capitalism International.
