How do we organize us? How do we make an easy and effective decision? Those are the live issues that we deal with every day when we organize our community and the non-profit training center. The sociocratic method we are using today is an further developement from the holacracy that was used since 2009.

In sociocracy there is a bigSoziokratieger focus on companionship and the strong hold in a community which is needed to make decisiones. For this reason the sociocratic model fits better to our way of living together. Sociocracy concentrates on the concepts of cooperation and paticipation. There are various application possibilities in which this concept can be used, for example in shools, politics, universities or even in companies. In all these diffenrent places and occasions sociocracy can help to create an easier and more trustful contact. It is also able to strengthen our respect for each other, and offers new possibilities to cooperate with and live your own freedom in a responsible way.

Our decisiones are mostly made by the concept of consens, within which everyone can be heard and give approval. We always come together as a group before we make a decision to share our different opinions and objections so all oft hem can be integrated in the process and further developement can be possible. Maybe one day the concept of sociocracy will be used for all the different questions that come up in the ZEGG community, but until that day we will go on experimenting.
