The Sociocracy Consulting Group and Sociocracy For All
Amherst MA
I am passionate about living the revolution now in organizations. So talk to me about two elements of that I am excited by:
1. Sociocracy (pronounce it like a combo of sociology and democracy). The operating system for the New Economy! Meaning it is a more egalitarian approach to decision making and organizational structure than the traditions of top-down hierarchy, voting democracy and consensus. Watch this 4 minute video (https://youtu.be/l3zFWpntExg) for a quick overview of what I am talking about. Check the settings if you want Spanish, French or Italian subtitles. Check out my sociocratic collective (actually an LLC) at sociocracyconsulting.com or my nonprofit at sociocracyforall.org.
2. Nonviolent Communication. Everybody's needs matter! And as equals we can put both of our needs on the table and together figure out how to best meet those needs. Regardless of role in organization or family. Check out NewEnglandNVC.org or CNVC.org.
3. Did I say two. Yes, well I also live in a cohousing community so I am happy to talk about that. Pioneer Valley Cohousing in Amherst MA. Check it out at cohousing.com. We operate on Sociocracy.
