Learn how to support engagement, creativity and focus throughout your team. Tap on the wisdom of the group. Keep everyone involved in democratic ways, maintaining everyone’s equivalence. And at the same time structure your organisation to become more effective at following its calling.

All over the world organisations are experimenting with new tools and methods for increasing effectiveness and organizational agility. One pattern we see emerging in this new paradigm is self-organized, semi-autonomous teams, energized by a personal sense of calling to serve effectively their collective purpose. At the same time it’s becoming clear that each organization’s context is unique and that prescriptive, “one size fits all” solutions can cause more harm than good.

Sociocracy 3.0 (also known as S3) is a free, modular and principles-based practical guide for people wishing to collaborate more effectively and grow happy, humane organisations.

It builds on sociocratic practices, integrating principles from Agile, Lean, and Non-Violent Communication and provides a rich variety of compatible options to choose from and adapt, according to unique context and needs.

S3 acts as a “social technology” for raising self-accountability and engagement in teams while promoting respect, diversity and inclusion. It supports distribution of power to all, within interconnected domains of accountability, freeing people up to decide and act. It facilitates co-creativity, fosters transparency and guarantees equivalence for all concerned.

This be training will be given by Liliana David and James Priest of Thrive-in Collaboration – experienced course trainers and authors of Sociocracy 3.0. For more information and open source learning materials, go to

What past participants say

I have been on many workshops and trainings during my life and treasure some of them. This workshop will definitely be one of them. James and Lili are great facilitators and create a safe, open and creative environment. I learned not only S3, which I had hoped for, but also about myself(ves), which will help me be more whole, authentic and therefore a better person and leader.

The workshop is highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn about collaboration and ways to increase engagement in your organization. Anders L – Agile Coach, Crisp, Stockholm, Sweden

A great workshop. Mindful, makes you think, reflect and make sense of the reality around you. The concepts & techniques are highly applicable in organizational environments. Natalia – Agile Coach, Spotify, Stockholm, Sweden

This immersive course went much beyond my expectations. It gave me a fantastic opportunity to deepen my understanding of S3 principles and implementations through facilitated experiential processes, plus practices. This has empowered me to take my learning forwards and integrate S3 into our organization. Dr Katy Momo Fox – Founder, Designer at Cell Centre for Ecological Learning – Luxembourg

About the course journey

Our journey together will focus mainly on an exploration of S3 principles and processes, consisting of a balanced programme with a combination of theory, practice and reflection.

Day 1 focuses largely on theory and learning about the basic elements of the S3 practical guide, including an exploration of its principles. Be prepared for learning, un-learning and for your brain to get hot!

Day 2 we move via demonstrations to practice, where you will apply S3 patterns for tapping collective intelligence and decision making, touch base with a few more patterns and review learning so far.

Day 3 continues with reflections on effective ways to pull in S3 patterns in organizations. Later you’ll learn about and experience Driver mapping, a pattern that enables fast start-up when a group of people wish to self-organise and collaborate together around a shared Driver. We close with open-space sessions where you can focus attention into areas most supporting integration of course content and allowing further chances to apply patterns in practice should you choose.
