The new team at the North Kohala Community Resource Center has adopted this revolutionary way of governance that involves all team members in decision-making. They share the title of Co-Director of Operations with specialties in finance (Michelle), programs (Leslie) and Administration (ʻEkela). While it is a new concept to the team, sociocracy has been used for decades in the Netherlands and has gained momentum and is being established in organizations in the US.

How it works is that unlike traditional majority rule (or boss’ decrees), Dynamic Governance uses innovative consent-based decision-making. It encourages collaborative thinking and saves time and energy because it doesn’t require consensus/agreement. Our ideas are melded together to create an outcome that we could not have envisioned alone.
