Dear Cohousing friends, I will be teaching a 6 session telecourse on meeting facilitation and group decision-making using the sociocratic approach beginning March 7. I view sociocracy as the most effective and efficient method of consensus decision making I have experienced. I've taught consensus off and on for more than 30 years and lived in cohousing for more than16 years. Many a cohousing community has struggled with consensus decision-making. I find sociocracy to be an effective and efficient method for running meetings and organizations, and for making decisions where everyone has a voice. I like sociocracy (or as it is otherwise known, dynamic self-governance) because it embodies the principles of power with and power within. And the methods of Sociocracy can be applied beyond cohousing - in family circles, in community-based organizations, and in for-profit and non-profit corporations. I'd like to contribute to the growth of sociocracy in cohousing. This course is 6 Mondays by phone. No previous experience with sococracy is required. It is being offered through the NVC Academy. NVC as in Nonviolent Communication. Some familiarity with NVC is useful for the course, so if you are interested in the course I'd be happy to share with you an overview of NVC.
