  • equivalence is the essential principle underlying sociocracy

  • no individual or group is disregarded

Quote:

Seek the win-win: Every situation will be approached assuming that there is a solution that is mutually beneficial. Scarcity thinking (“when you get what you want, it means I get less”) is not accurate. There are countless examples of how synergy can make an exchange mutually beneficial.

Quote:

Open to emergence: Acceptance of not knowing and letting go of an attachment to an outcome. The less ego is involved, the easier it is for a solution to present itself. In complex systems, we cannot predict what will happen. No one person will have access to the absolute truth or the perfect idea. Considering everyone’s input is key.

The principles of sociocracy are wonderful. I guess that if we implement them properly, we could progress together, without anyone being left behind.
