an operating system of governance that creates a horizontal flow of distributed power with feedback loops.
They say 'the more you tell, the more you sell' which is true... but only if people actually read what you write.
In the past 3 years more than 2,000 blockchain projects have failed. Forbes, Cointelegraph and Deloitte have written about governance being one of the key areas of failure.
The global blockchain market size is expected to grow from $3 Billion USD in 2020 to $39.7 Billion USD by 2025. The money is here to attract incredible talent but how to recruit and retain them?
Ineffective meetings, drain energy, waste time and slow down results. When meetings are dominated by a few loud voices or go in circles instead of defining clear next steps, it feels chaotic and repetitive.
Sociocracy aligns the ethos of distributed technology with a parallel distributed governance system.
When team members feel their voices are heard, the work is self-managed, and the culture is inclusive... improved retention is a natural result.
The wisdom of the crowd produces decisions the crowd fully supports. The sociocracy process uncovers objections that would otherwise remain hidden.
When teams arrive at decisions together, it's energizing! No one leaves a meeting feeling unheard. Meetings become fun and productive.
Alignment with Ethos
Building decentralized tech using decentralized governance creates inner and outer alignment.
When everyone consents to a decision, there is no time lost revisiting the same issues or worse becoming fractured or disfunctional.
Sociocracy's double linking ensures representation throughout the organization's decision making. Actively inviting objections encourages transparent sharing.
"GovernanceAlive works with organizations that desire to give voice to all of their employees so as to create a valuable feedback loop to top management. This ultimately facilitates communications, engenders greater trust and connectedness throughout the organization, which in turn increases productivity and profits.”
Larry Checo, Branding Guru
Humans building blockchains know the value of decentralized technology and naturally want to experience it when operating as a team.
Teams feel empowered and make better decisions when arriving at solutions together.
How are new members onboarded?
How will we fund ourselves?
What happens if we don't have a governance model that aligns with our aim of decentralization?
Here are some of the common questions, if you have others please send us a text or email.
1 to 2 people is ideal. If you need a longer call with a larger group, we can discuss that option on our call.
At least one of us will be on the call with you! We strive to coordinate schedules so we are both on the call.
