Our Team

We are a joyful community devoted to transforming society. First, through our own inner transformation, then through the foundational pillars of sociocracy combined with other social technologies.  Sociocracy has been successful since the early 1900s.

What makes the mass adoption of sociocracy now possible (besides humanity’s willingness), is technology like blockchain, distributed ledgers, and smart contracts.

Our core community consists of 18 members.  John and Monika, the founding partners, have persevered through a VUCA decade, applying the principals and methods we strive to impart to you.  Living what we teach.

Books by John Buck

We the People: Consenting to a Deeper Democracy – Our understanding of how the world works was fundamentally altered when the mechanical model of closed, linear systems was replaced with cybernetics and complexity theory. Sociocracy is a governance method that uses these new sciences to design organizations that are as powerful, self-organizing, and self-correcting as the natural world, including the honeybees.

Company-wide Agility with Beyond Budgeting Open Space & Sociocracy -Today companies are expected to be flexible and both rapidly responsive and resilient to change, which basically asks them to be Agile. Lack of an overarching theory about how to expand the Agile Manifesto has led to many fragmented attempts to apply Agile company-wide.
