Ted spends most of his time training and consulting in sociocracy and leading SoFA as an organization. Ted is co-author of the sociocracy handbook Many Voices, One Song. He enjoys writing articles, and teaching meeting facilitation. People and their universal need to connect and move things are at the center of his attention. He pays attention to the co-housing movement, transgender rights, and non-violent communication.
Outside of SoFA work, Ted is a parent of 5, former linguist, and singer-songwriter. The training in linguistics taught Ted to find patterns that work well for the human mind, to work empirically, and break things down so they can be understood. Being a parent of 5 had taught him to be extremely pragmatic... maybe this earned him the label of being a "manifestor"; at the end of the day, dinner must be on the table no matter whether the new vision statement is done.
