Community of Practice: facilitators of sociocratic circles

October 23, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

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?

This Community Of Practice might be helpful for you!

What is a community of practice?

  • It’s a regular group with defined members – so we can build trusted relationships with each other.
  • It’s open to people who are in sociocratic circles and hold facilitator roles in them.

We will support each other in all the questions that come up in our role. For example, how do we balance being a circle member and a circle facilitator? How do we navigate heightened emotions? How can I better integrate objections and synthesize proposals? Plus any question that you want to put on the agenda!

What happens at a meeting?

  • Check-in
  • Building the agenda: gathering topics from the group in a round
  • Talking about the topics (in rounds)
  • Check-out
