What does a consultant or coach do for you?

consultant identifies with you what stage of implementation you’re on. Implementations follow a series of steps, and understanding what’s next for you might even be all you need.

The consultant also assesses with you what kind of support might be useful to make your next steps effective and successful.

Services that are typically part of an implementation:

Services that are typically part of an implementation:

  • assessing training needs
  • forming, coaching, and strategizing with the implementation circle/transformation team
  • observing and facilitating meetings
  • 1:1. or small-group conversations with stakeholders (the board, leadership, or people with concerns) and open Q&A sessions (e.g. for the whole membership or staff)
  • Holding and facilitating “kick-off” events – we help you set up the first circles and the General Circle. This can be, for example, a two-day event with deeper training, formal adoption, and “flipping the switch” into your new governance system.
  • Designing your circle structure and key roles, as well as documenting your governance system (see our samples and templates)
  • Aligning your documents and bylaws with sociocracy
