Dynamic governance-sociocracy

Dynamic governance-sociocracy

I work in partnership with global network of sociocratic experts at Sociocracy group founded in the Netherlands. It is emerging today as a global network of organisational professionals who bring this unique and effective way of collective work to the business, social and governmental organisations trough teaching and facilitation, consulting, executive coaching and board-level advisory.

How Sociocracy works

Sociocracy is an effective way for groups to self-organise and cooperate to accomplish shared objectives. Sociocracy has been used in hundreds of organisations world-wide over the past 40 years, and provides a reliable way to increase productivity, safety, happiness, and engagement in organisations of any size.

Sociocracy is a whole-systems approach to management and governance with full array of core practices and systems needed for running most types of organization, from cohousing communities to manufacturing firms to schools to small businesses. At its core are four principles: Consent, Circles, Feedback, and Election by Consent.

More about the 4 principles.


Dynamic governance, or sociocracy, is a decision-making and governance method that allows an organization to manage itself as an organic whole. To make this possible, dynamic governance enables every sub-part of the organization to have an authoritative voice in the management of the organization. The dynamic governance method has three defining elements: consent, circle, and double-linking. These elements derive from the science of cybernetics, systems theory, self-organization theory, and fractal mathematics.

Dynamic governance is also quite distinct from the management concepts underlying quality circles, socio-technical analysis, organizational development, cooperatives, and employee stock ownership plans. While it applies the best financial and business management practices, it focuses on modifying or rewiring the autocratic power structure that is the backbone of modern organizations, whether profit or nonprofit.

Organizations using dynamic governance report increased innovation, productivity increases of up to 40%, reduction in the number of meetings, decreases in sick leave, and higher staff commitment to the organization. Both workers and managers like working in dynamically organized companies. Quite simply, businesses and organizations are easier to guide and seem to have an unusual capacity for initiative, self-regeneration, and repair. The method is operating well in organizations of up to 1800 people and substantially larger organizations re applying it on a limited basis.

Strategy session

As a former Strategy director for the major Lithuanian private company and as a consulting practitioner (over 6 years) the advisory services I provide to my clients – the owners and top managers of Lithuanian private companies - are focused on developing and facilitating strategic discussions resulting into co-creating mutual identity (vision, mission and purpose) and inspire creative actions (action plans) towards the emerging future of an organization.

I use Art of Hosting methods for facilitating creative work in groups which leads to strategic insights and mutual understanding.

I use Sociocratic methods for facilitating collective agreements on action taking, so that creating insights become collective action for the emerging future.

Group Facilitation

Facilitation helps when conversations are difficult because they are important. So an experienced facilitator helps you to lead a meeting on issues that matter. I use Sociocratic and Holocratic methods for facilitation of collective agreements so that:

The Whole Situation is Clear to all Members

Collective Decisions are Fast and Effective

and

There is 100% REAL Collective Commitment to

Execution of Decisions


There are 2 professionals needed for any meeting:

- the host (i.e. you), who knows why the meeting is called, who should be invited and what needs to be done collectively

and

- the facilitator, who knows how to design and facilitate collective work, so good space is created for conversation on important issues.

Consulting on Dynamic Management

Dynamic governance today is emerging as the most efficient management system in the fast-moving and chaotic world.

I help clients to transform how the collective action and decisions could be transformed to become responsive to quick changes in the environment.

I help to transform one meeting as well as the whole system of meetings by facilitating meetings myself as well as teaching internal people to become sociocratic/holacratic facilitators.

It works because you learn to be clear between:

  • what has to be spoken and decided in the group collectively and

  • what does not need to be decided in the group and better be delegated.

It works because you learn to stop discussing and start really dialoging:

  • all information is open and needs to be understood (emotions are also information)

  • listening co-creates a better decisions when debate
