Enspiral Labs is running a series of workshops across Australia to help give context, tools and an experience in open participatory systems, based on our lived experience of working in a non-hierarchical network of startups.
Enspiral is a bold experiment in participation by design. We use the tools of business to create positive social impact and develop software and practices for non-hierarchical, open and participatory working cultures.
We prioritise a way of working where people can focus their energies on what is most meaningful to them.
During this introduction we'll spend 90 minutes exploring the following key areas followed by another 90 minutes for those who want to dive deeper.
• Money: How do you democratically fund a community?
• Decisions: How can you come to consensus with hundreds of people and not sit in long meetings?
• Management: How do you hold accountability and support in an organisation without managers?
• Leadership: How might distributed leadership actually work?
This event is cohosted by Joshua Vial and Damian Sligo-Green from Enspiral in collaboration with David Pecotic from the Public Sector Innovation Network, The Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals and Bradley Allen Love Lawyers. There will be light catering provided.
