Practice Facilitation Processes in CoP-F East and CoP-F West, 2nd Monday, 90 min, 14:00 UTC and 18:30 UTC

Sociocracy is a governance system that aims to create more inclusive and collaborative decision-making processes within organizations or communities. When applied to a community of practice for facilitators, sociocracy can have several advantages, including:

  1. Equal participation:

Sociocracy emphasizes equal participation and empowers all members of the community of practice to contribute to decision-making. This can create a sense of ownership and engagement among the members, leading to more commitment and accountability.

  1. Improved communication:

Sociocracy emphasizes clear and open communication. Members are encouraged to express their ideas, opinions, and concerns freely, leading to better communication and understanding among members.

  1. Effective decision-making:

Sociocracy decision-making process is through consent, which ensures that all members have a say in the decision-making process. This can lead to more effective decisions that are based on the collective knowledge and experience of the group.

  1. Flexible and adaptable:

Sociocracy is a flexible system that can adapt to changing circumstances or new information. This can be particularly useful in a community of practice for facilitators, where new ideas and approaches are constantly emerging.

  1. Increased accountability:

Sociocracy encourages accountability by ensuring that decisions are made collectively and transparently. This can help to create a culture of responsibility and accountability among members.

Overall, sociocracy can help to create a more collaborative, inclusive, and effective community of practice for facilitators.
