I joined SoFA when I participated in the translation of “Many Voices One Song” and I’m happy to share that I just published my own book, called “Shared Decision-Making in the Corporate Arena.”
It gathers 50 real-life stories in 34 organizations in 14 countries, based on 19 interviews and research over the last 10 years (including many references like MVOS of course): my intention is to show how all kinds of organizations have found ways to involve more people in their decision-making, with an impact on the teams, the organizations’s sustainability and the planet (ie society and environment.) I believe it can help others follow that direction.
Chapter 5 is about sociocracy and holacracy, with examples.
I’m always happy to share about the stories and concepts in my book: feel free to reach out and we’ll talk! I thank you in advance for your feedback.
The description of my book is here: https://bit.ly/SharedDecisionMakingBook
You my buy it for you or for someone else here: bit.ly/tell-everyone
The next step for these stories is to set up conferences in organizations: if you have contacts in the kind of organizations mentioned in the book and believe their teams and leaders could benefit from a participative conference, let me know!
Have a wonderful week,
Congratulation for your book “Shared Decision-Making in the Corporate Arena”

I will set the necessary time to read your book.
Now I’m reading Ted’s new book Collective Power Did you have the chance to read it?
I also invite you to join us on SoFA “Self-Governance and Money conference 2023” on Sept 28+29, 2023 (this week).
Do you think we could collaborate on the SoFA @work community of practice? I guess you could inspire many people. If it would be a useful / interesting experience for you as well, let’s keep in touch. There are a lot of opportunities which could arise from the Sociocracy For All environment and ecosystem. We could explore them together.
Just bought a copy (thanks to SoMBu for the tip!) - looking forward to reading it!
Hello Adrian and thank you for your kind words.
I apologize for my slow answer.
Let’s talk about the community of practice and exploration: I’m not sure how we can connect, I might use Linkedin.
Talk to you soon!
Thank you Ted and sorry for being away from this board in the last month or so.
I hope your recent book and the translation of “Many Voices” in French (that’s how I got involved with Soda) will help organizations become more responsible!
Let’s keep in touch.
Thank you Ania, I appreciate it.
I’m looking forward to hearing any thoughts or impression you want to share when you read the book. Let’s keep the conversation going!
