If you are trying to organise in a decentralised, collaborative, less-hierarchical team, you are probably asking yourself: How do we include people in decisions without spending so much time in meetings?
How do we encourage participation, engagement, and shared responsibility? And if nobody is in charge, where does accountability come from? 

You are not the only one. For the last decade, Nati and Rich from The Hum have been immersed in these challenges, as they co-founded and built Loomio and Enspiral, two pioneering decentralised organisations. In this 3-day residential training they’ll share with you what they have learned along the way.

Food

Your booking includes training, accommodation, dinner on Sunday, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Monday and Tuesday, and breakfast and lunch on Wednesday. All food will be organic and mostly locally grown in Monkton Wyld Court's market garden, and other local farms.

Times

Arriving before 4pm on Monday 27th April. Departing 30th April after lunch.

Patterns for Decentralised Organising

  • A training experience that covers all the Patterns for Decentralised Organising, the key components that support a thriving collaborative team. Like decision-making, power dynamics, conflict, digital tools, communication skills, accountability, and team culture.
  • An immersive learning space, set aside from your day-to-day routine, for you to focus on your personal and organisational development. 
  • A balance of theory and practice, with engaging exercises and real-world examples from our lived experience.
  • An opportunity to get into the real work of addressing organisational challenges, and co-designing experiments you can apply immediately.

The Hum is Nati Lombardo and Rich Bartlett. We have been immersed in decentralised organisations since 2011, playing co-leadership roles in the Loomio tech co-op and the Enspiral network of social enterprises. For the past 3 years, we’ve been travelling the world sharing our experiences, and learning with others about self-managing organisations. We’ve worked in 17 countries, with a huge diversity of organisations across all sectors.

For people who are already working in decentralised organisations, or just starting their journey into self-management. You might be a founder, coordinator, community builder, facilitator, social entrepreneur or organisational designer.

This training is designed for individuals, but it will be even more valuable if you can bring multiple team members to participate together.
