Sociocracy & Better Decision Making
7 October, 2pm - 4.30pm
Despite some organisations or collectives having the best intentions to spread power and decision making among workers, we know that in reality it is incredibly complex to foster autonomy and get things done. The good news is that Sociocracy is a practical way to move quickly where it’s safe and understand when it isn’t. Apply for your place

Remote Team Working

This is an opportunity for you to become more effective and efficient in your work, be accountable and productive, and feel connected still to your teammates. In this webinar, you will discover for yourself how to overcome blockers in your day, how to create structure and get disciplined, whilst feeling closer to your colleagues and to your other commitments.
