Cooperatives

You’re a coop? That’s great! Sociocracy and cooperatives go together like peanut butter and jelly! Both sociocracy and worker-coops build on shared ownership and shared decision-making.

Your worker cooperative should consider sociocracy if

  • you want your work units to be more effective
  • your meetings take too long
  • you feel like you spend too much work time with power and personal struggles
  • you’re longing for more efficiency in how you work together.

The good thing about sociocracy is that is offers you a way to have clear roles that make work efficient while the group remains in power. You can be equals while being productive. You can be efficient without leaving anyone behind.
