Productive for business - Sustainable for people. Make the change in a 2-day workshop
17th - 18th October 2013 at Newbold House
Question: What’s the one organisational tool that Buddhists and Muslims, corporation bosses and non-profits, teachers and financial companies all agree works?
John Buck joins us once again with the answer - Dynamic Self Governance: Inspired, graceful tools for group empowerment, improved business and a happier workplace (it can happen!)
“DSG is one of those tools that it’s hard to explain how powerfully effective it is... until you use it - and wonder ‘how did we ever function without it!?”
Traditional organisational structures *generate* stress and inefficiency. Yet we keep using them – because a lot of the time they work. But who doesn’t want something better for their organisation?
If you’ve ever felt yourself thinking any of following, DSG will revolutionise your organisation:
The workshop will be led and facilitated by John Buck and Diana Leafe Christian.
Sociocracy expert John Buck, CEO of Sociocracy Consulting Group (www.sociocracyconsulting.com) excels in teaching the only organisational and decision making system your organisation will ever need – whether you’re a large, industrial corporation, a small local religious group...or something in between!
John is brimming with techniques that ‘mindful managers and governance entrepreneurs’ have been crying out for. He argues that the traditional business structural paradigms actually generate stress and inefficiency. Yet he also recognises it strengths – hence DSG’s ability to make the most of what you already have...and make it better. John’s process works for small, local concerns as well as it does for huge corporate machines.
Diana speaks at ecovillage and cohousing conferences internationally. See her interview on Peak Moment TV.
John will be focusing on teaching workshop participants from businesses, nonprofit organizations, and schools, and Diana will be focusing on teaching participants from cohousing and other kinds of intentional communities. Diana and John will be supported by our Nathaniel Whitestone (business) and James Priest (communities).
Said one student from the course earlier this year:
‘DSG as presented by John Buck has led me to revise my understanding of the words governance and hierarchy...Inspired by the inclusiveness, equality and dynamism which DSG creates, I now feel much more motivated to participate in the decision-making structures of the community I live in’
It’s a new way to organise power for managers who want creativity and innovation but also order and productivity
It gives a voice to the employee or committee member that they can be sure is heard and that the company can really make use of to increase efficiency and productivity
It links lower to upper, empowering all members of staff within traditional business hierarchies ...and brings clarity to democratic organisations that just can’t move forward.
