Thanks! I've just started reading We the People. In fact, I'm reading Holacracy at the same time to compare. Thought I'm enjoying Holacracy as a book in its own right, I'm already finding some things are ruffling my feathers! I shall keep an open mind for now though in the spirit of Socratic wisdom...
Well, I'm not sure what you remember me saying about my video, but it is now done (after about 4 years) and is 29:06 long. I am dropping French and German subtitles into copies so that I can have something to present to speakers of those languages, but that is going very slowly. I'm trying to get it set up on Dynamo, but can't figure out how to get support to answer my questions.
Hi everyone and thanks for the welcome. I've just had a good chat with Louis and I look forward to working with you in any way I can. My time, like yours, is a bit limited as I am running local things as well as planning an event for September. Just trying to sort out Taster Workshops (see www.residentsassociations.co.uk). Any ideas would be most welcome.
I've studied and practiced NVC over the past 11 years. Several years ago, I learned of Sociocracy, then I heard Marshall Rosenberg was looking at it as a model for expanding local NVC circles around the world. I then researched at least to the point I could get on board. Now, I'm ready to participate.
I've read much; yesterday John "tasked me" with reviewing the sociocracy information online. I've got a few more hours to spend before I find the rest of it and I'm enjoying what I'm finding. There does seem to be a bit of dis-connection among movement members, information and online resources. Among other things, I'm interested to see keywords associated with the movement from an outsider's perspective. I want to increase visibility worldwide.
I'm in Montana, just outside Livingston (Latitude = 45.6463, Longitude = -110.3546), about 2km above sea level. I've been a technologist most of my life and want to lend my expertise to bettering the world we live in. Sociocracy is at least one way to participate.
I'll definitely go through the ning's resources, probably still today.
Interested in developing our structure along lines of consent rather than policy. Heresy the scream at me at work. Strewth how do freinds order a tapas meal. It's not a policy you want bit of what you like. You hope others have something they like and perhaps you find something new you learn to like.
No control so it's Heresy at Magpie. Is that not the inherenet danger of a policy system control is surrendered to drafters and not kept with the grafters.
