Sociocracy and conflict resolution (additional training)

Ideally , sociocracy prevents conflict – but what if that didn’t work? Let’s look at how sociocracy and conflict resolution can integrate for more connected, harmonious and authentic organizations.


  • How to prevent conflict with sociocracy: clarity, connection, and consistency
  • How to address conflict with sociocracy: circle care, Helping Circles, resolution groups
  • How to hold conflict resolution institutionally: care & council circles and relevant policies


Jerry Koch-Gonzalez.

He has shared sociocracy and NVC with dozens of communities in North America and abroad. Jerry was born in Cuba and immigrated to the USA as a child.

Sociocracy and conflict resolution (additional training)

Love you all!

p.s. Are you holding the role of the facilitator of a circle in your organization? Would it help you to reflect with others on what it means to be a facilitator in a sociocratic organization? Would you like to practice being a facilitator? This Community Of Practice might be helpful for you:


In the Community of Practice for Facilitators (CoP-F) no one teaches anyone, but we all learn from each other by practicing and sharing real life experiences.

We welcome your presence and contribution. It will enrich all of our sociocracy knowledge.

Best wishes to all of you!
