Experience Consent Decision Making in practice… with a game!
Many leaders and organizations aspire to embrace diversity and make inclusive group decisions. Doing it in practice remains a real challenge.
- As a team or a leader, how can you navigate complex cultural dynamics, to make agreements across boundaries?
- As a diverse voice, how can you propose change, so that your perspective is heard and integrated
Sociocracy 3.0 offers a facilitated group process to overcome these challenges by:
- Giving a practical process to initiate and accept change using reasoned arguments
- Creating an inclusive decision-making environment based on consent and equivalence,
- Giving a step-by-step-practice for creating agreements across boundaries.
In the workshop I'll briefly introduce this Consent Decision Making process, then we'll experience its effectiveness with an immersive role-playing game. 🙂
You are part of a diverse group of leaders at AdaptCycle – a fictional organization that manufacturers bicycles in Holland. The organization is value-driven with a flat hierarchy.
Your goal is to agree on the product features of a new Omafiets (grandma bike) for cyclists with reduced mobility.
Can the CEO, an Iranian muslim woman with a handicapped mother, agree with the autistic Logistics Manager, whose first concern is the supply chain?
Can the young asian female engineer, who fled the American east coast to escape anti-asian discrimination be supported to collaborate with the white male COO?
This game is based on the RPG game system FATE and courses I've taught to leadership groups and diverse international teams who are serious about making inclusive decisions.
How will this diverse group of leaders come to an agreement?
Come and play to find out!
