      The workshop introduces the theory and practice of Holacracy, a new way of structuring, governing, and running a company. Holacracy fundamentally changes how decisions are made and how power is distributed. The goals of Holacracy are bold: make your organization more agile and responsive, increase clarity —that means to determine who does what, expects what, and decides what—minimize 'office politics', and enable deeper employee engagement and empowerment.
