What Does an Efficient Local Democracy Look Like? A good democracy has many voices representing the whole community making better decisions that produce better outcomes for everyone. Finding and practicing a process that facilitates this is part of the CHEER community improvement process. CHEER is honored to host trainings in CircleForward presented by John Buck and Monika Megyesi of the Sociocracy Consulting Group. John and Monika offer highly interactive and engaging trainings designed for everyone who’s ever been in a meeting and wondered, “How can we do this better?”
CircleForward, also called Sociocracy, is a consent-based decision making process and a new way of structuring power. Elegantly simple, CircleForward is a profound change from business as usual.
Through this training participants will :
Have smarter, more energized meetings,
Prevent burnout and increase participant commitment, and
Grow more sustainable organizations and businesses.
This approach applies to business, government, and nonprofit groups. CircleForward also helps regional groups of organizations coordinate common aims.
