Holacracy Taster Event for Business Owners, Consultants, Strategy & Organization Development Experts

Is your organization agile and adaptive to its environment - even as it scales? Are the functions and roles within your organization clear, yet also continually evolving, and driven by those doing the work? Is the work aligned with the organization’s purpose, without egos getting in the way?

This workshop introduces Holacracy: a real-world tested "social technology" for structuring, governing, and running a purpose-driven, agile company. Holacracy fundamentally changes how decisions are made and how power is distributed. The program includes experiential meeting processes and Q & A throughout the presentations to integrate your learning. It satisfies the prerequisite for attending the 5-day Practitioner Certification Training through HolacracyOne.

You have probably seen Holacracy mentioned in the news around the announcement of Zappos announcing it's full intention to transition to a holacratic organization. Here are a few links to Holacracy in the media: CBC Radio and the Washington Post. Here is a video of Twitter founder, Evan Williams, at the Wisdom 2.0 Conference talking about his new company, Medium, and refers often to Holacracy. His talk was entitled: "Mindfully Building a Company from the Ground Up."

Conscious Brands is a Holacracy Agent that has completed both Holacracy Practitioner and Holacracy Coach training and have been licensed to deliver Taster Workshops. They have been employing (and thriving) under Holacracy internally for over 2 years.

What you will experience at the workshop:

  • Try a transformative governance process that creates crystal clear roles and accountabilities even while dynamically evolving as-needed
  • Interactively explore Holacracy's distributed authority structure, and learn how it scales across organizations small and large
  • Experience Holacracy's lightning-quick, action-focused Tactical Meetings

Who is this workshop for?

  • LEADERS: Business, community, non-profit, education, healthcare leaders who are seeking ways to make their organizations more nimble and sustainable
  • BOARDS OF DIRECTORS: Deepen understanding of governance practices and organizational models
  • EDUCATORS & INNOVATORS: Introduction to leading edge systems thinking
  • CONSULTANTS & COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS: Experience evolutionary organizational practices

Lead Presenter:  Matt Mayer

Matt is a strong believer in the notion that business can be a force for good only if success can be redefined to include measurable returns for all stakeholders (rather than simply shareholders). Though the process of redefining success for a company can be messy, Matt thrives in creating and witnessing those conditions – the process of creation, re-envisioning and expanding. Holacracy is the perfect system for organizing a business around these principles in a structured and elegant way. As such, he is a strong proponent of Holacracy being the "organizing structure for the 21st century business."
