Dynamic Governance
Empowering People & Organizations
Introductory Public Talk
with John Buck & Manfred Friedrich

Friday, January 9, 2015
Santa Barbara County Public Health Building
$5-10 Sliding Scale

Learn how businesses & organizations around the world are "thinking smarter in circles"

Dynamic Governance (aka Sociocracy) is an elegantly simple, innovative new method of governing that creates more inclusive and efficient organizations, while creating better human relationships.

Join long time Dynamic Governance pioneers and experts John Buck and Manfred Friedrich for an introductory talk on Friday, January 9, as they share the ideas and concepts of Dynamic Governance as a way to empower and bring out the best in people working together for a common purpose.

First developed and honed in the Netherlands, Dynamic Governance has spread around the world and is currently used by several thousand organizations with inspiring results. Working in a wide range of settings including families, volunteer groups, community organizations, non-profits, government agencies, schools and universities, small businesses and large corporations, Dynamic Governance rewires the decision-making process to mine the intelligence and creativity that already exist in organizations.

Structured around self-organizing circles that make policy decisions and assign tasks and responsibilities through various group processes that engage the perspectives, skills, sympathies, and inspirations of all the members of a group, Dynamic Governance then strategically connects these individual circles to a wider interlinked organizational network.

John Buck co-authored We the People: Consenting to a Deeper Democracy, a book about a new, more inclusive way of governing ourselves using Dynamic Governance; and is the Division Director of The Sociocracy Group in the Netherlands, consulting with businesses, nonprofits, and collaboration councils around the world.

Manfred Friedrich is entrepreneur, organization builder, and mediator who uses Dynamic Governance to support organizations whose intentions are to foster collaboration, equality, personal growth, transparency and better decisions.

The event takes place on Friday, January 9, 7-9pm, at the Santa Barbara County Public Health Building, 300 North San Antonio Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93110. Admission $5-$10 sliding scale, no reservations required. More info: Lesley Weinstock: lesleyweinstock@yahoo.com, 805-212-0052, https://www.facebook.com/events/369751236538965/.
