Sociocracy For All

“We all know what deep connection feels like. 

We all know what deep belonging feels like – when we enter a group and we tap into knowing deep inside that these are our people.

How can we be aligned with our need for connection wherever we go, in our workplaces, our neighborhoods, towns, clubs, faith groups, associations and our families? 

We think that sociocracy can contribute to a more connected, integrated life.”

“Finally a handbook for Sociocracy! The handbook is detailed, practical, full of examples and insights from experience. A wonderful contribution for people striving for better workplaces and communities.”

– Fredrick Laloux, author of Reinventing Organizations

“I appreciate the warm and kindly tone, clear graphics demonstrating many possible configurations of linked circles, and sheer comprehensive coverage of the topic in Many Voices One Song. The authors include valuable field-tested tips using socriocracy, drawn from their personal experiences. I highly recommend this book for existing and forming communities using or considering using sociocracy”

– Diana Leafe Christian

“This is a very important book. Many people will find its specific guidance very useful as they start using sociocracy to make their organization more nimble, adaptive and humane.”

– John Buck (Co-author of We The People)

“This book delivers the essentials of sociocracy by sticking to its core values and principles. It’s a rich, balanced mix between pure sociocracy and valuable tips from experienced practitioners. It’s good to finally have such a practical manual available: It is the Bible that any organization going to implement sociocracy should procure itself.”

– Stéphane Brodu, Collaborative governance coach and collective intelligence consultant
