• The ARC Process

    Our interactive course for groups helps clarify their purpose while creating alignment around their goals and values-even in the presence of competing interests among members.

  • Facilitator Training

    Anyone who works with groups can become a trained Prosocial facilitator, adding to their existing toolkit. Prosocial is designed to complement, not compete with, other change methods.

  • A global community

    Working together, we can evolve our methods and create positive change on a global scale, starting with single groups and multi-group cultural ecosystems.

All types of groups can benefit from The ARC Process

  • Business Teams: In all kinds of settings, our method plays well alongside Agile and many other management practices.

  • Organizations with several groups: Coordination with other groups is one of our core principles and integral to the method.

  • New Groups: The ARC Process is the ideal first step for any new group, building a strong foundation from day one.

  • Self-Organizing Groups: Such as community groups, political movements, non-hierarchical groups with complex structures.

  • Expanding Groups: Our method clearly outlines goals and internal processes, making it easier to onboard newcomers and grow.

  • Groups in Conflict: The Prosocial ARC Process is designed to balance conflicting interests and align members around a shared purpose.

New Courses Coming Soon

Prosocial World is undertaking a major ‘discovery process’ to learn more about the needs of our community. As part of that process, we have used input from our community to rethink our training offerings for 2022.

We think the new offerings described below consolidate our identity as a source of practical approaches to enhancing cultural evolution. 

Here are a few of our planned changes:

Introductory 'Taster' Sessions:

  • These will be 90 min interactive webinars focused on introducing the basic ideas and practice of Prosocial.  They will come in 'general' and context specific flavours for different sectors (e.g. education, health, regenerative action) and contexts (e.g. Brazil, Japan, etc). We will be kicking off with introductory webinars in December.


Prosocial Learning Journeys/Adaptive Action Labs:

These will be 8-week flexible experiences built around questions of deep interest to our community like “How can we build more trust and collaboration in our group” or “How can we best decide together”. We will be seeking your input on learning journeys you would like to see offered, and engaging our facilitator community to help bring their expertise to facilitating them.  The aims of these experiences will be to a) have a lived experience of what a trusting, prosocial group looks like, b) form a community with a cohort of like-minded social change agents and c) learn and experience the rudiments of Prosocial.


Prosocial Cultural Evolution Professional Program:

This will be our new and extended facilitator training program. Over 9 months we will explore how you can facilitate Prosocial Learning Journeys and Adaptive Action Labs with groups and topics you care about. As with the old training, this program will suit people wanting to facilitate or consult with Prosocial. But there will be more time to reflect on your learning, apply it to contexts that matter to you and form a strong community with your cohort. 

You will emerge with a unique skill set that will allow you to work with groups and systems of all sorts to consciously evolve them more toward a world that works for all. We won't be offering this training until the second half of 2022 as we work to consolidate the Prosocial Learning Journey/Adaptive Action Lab approach and build new content for this facilitator training.


Building your Facilitation Toolkit – Workshop #1

But, in the meantime, you will still be able to improve your facilitation skills. We are partnering with Zenergy International to offer a course in basic facilitation skills. Zenergy is famous for their ‘whole-body’ approach to facilitation which helps you speak to, and utilise, participants head, heart and hands.

Please note that this is NOT a training in Prosocial, but we wanted to put it on because quite a few people doing the Prosocial training wanted to learn more about basic facilitation skills.


What our students are saying

CHLOE SPOERRY

CEO Hivisasa

"Prosocial tools have allowed me to manage a very difficult conflict inside our company. Instead of the conflict damaging or ruining our company, it made us stronger and built better foundations."

MATT M PEREZ

COO/Co-founder, Nearsoft, Inc.

"The most valuable thing about this course is to know that I am not alone, there are others out there, at the edge, moving in the same direction. The course material was very helpful, beyond what the PROSOCIAL book offered. Paul did a great job of bringing the material alive and he made it all look easy."

KIRSTEN PETERSON

Head, Australian Institute of Sport Performance Psychology

"I have found both the process and the products of this course to be so very useful. Paul embodies being prosocial in how he shares his knowledge, showing participants how Prosocial feels on the way to understanding how it works.”

KERRY PAXTON

Director of Wellbeing K-12, Catholic Learning Community

"This training provided us with a toolbox of effective strategies for enhancing interpersonal relationships and collaboration within and between groups at school. The matrix has the potential to transform not only thinking but communication, with the Core Design Principles providing a framework by which classes and staff teams can develop effective norms and processes."
