Social Tools Training Circle No. 5

Welcome to the fifth follow-up event of the Social Tools 2018 conference. Since new practices cannot be established during a weekend workshop we decided to host six separate training sessions.

The program for the sessions will be based on the "12 Patterns of Decentralized Organizing" as outlined by Natalie Lombardo and Rich Bartlett (Enspiral/Loomio) in their workshop, which took place at the 2018 Social Tools Conference.

For each of the peer learning session, we will focus on one pair of those 12 patters. We will exchange experiences and practices, do some exercises and deepen our understanding of the patterns. We will pull in other resources and discussions, for example from Sociocracy 3.0 or Cultural Democracy.

Session 5 will focus on Patterns 5+6: "Keep talking about power" and "Conflict is normal - agree how to deal with it"

We will look into how inevitable power imbalances in a decentralised organisation can be addressed and consider an escalation model to address conflict.

The event is open to anyone. No prior knowledge or attendance of the 2018 conference is required!

The space for this event is generously provided by QUERQ ry (ex. “Kehä Nolla”) – the Pixelache office became slightly too small for hosting the event.
