Sociocratic meeting technique

I'm exited to introduce a take on meeting facilitation called "the round" in my next meeting. It is certainly not a new technique, and it is already practiced a lot. However, few can imagine to use it thoughout the meeting, as it is perceived heavy and a little tiresome - to some. The thing is, it's a good technique to make sure that everybody in an assembly is heard. That noone takes over the discussion and the decision process.

Everybody gets a chance to speak, and you have to wait to speak untill your turn. You may have more to say, and you may have arguments against somebody else's opinion, but you don't get to influence consensus before it's your turn.

It's interesting. Try it.

The idea was introduced to me by Tyge Mortensen on an evening course.
