Why should nonprofits use sociocracy?
Many nonprofits use sociocracy as a governing method. Sociocracy works well in mission-oriented organizations as there is a very clear path towards clarifying your vision, mission, and aims. This clarity helps drive the organization as a whole to carry out its mission more effectively. Additionally, staff members have an opportunity to represent their interests in the organization. Having staff voices at the table helps to reduce burnout, a key problem in many nonprofits. Overall, sociocracy can help bring greater effectiveness, inclusiveness, and clarity to nonprofits.
