Gavin’s philosophy on the “sociocratic life” is best summed up in his own words:
I organize my life sociocratically and am pioneering new techniques in sociocratic management. I have been engaged in organizational design and development most of my life; two years ago, I discovered that there is a name for what I had been trying to develop on my own: Sociocracy. Since then, I finally started to hear and understand, when my friends were saying I should get paid for my work, that I could acquire clients.
I have trained with John Buck, head of the English-language Sociocratic Professional Association and the operations manager for the SCG, in the patterns of sociocratic organization and assisted him in training others. I need only to facilitate two more full-scale sociocratic implementations in order to qualify for certification as an expert sociocratic consultant.
My playground is networks of people…businesses, communities, families, individuals.
I create clarity. This is how I play at work. I engage with clients to clarify their purpose and intentions. What’s the difference between what you are making in the world, and what you want to be making?
Are you willing to close the gap?
I collaborate in creativity. This is how I work at play. My friends and I make up games, stories, meals, and new ways of moving through the world. We grow ourselves through the exploration of relationship.
What can we cook up together?
My dance is everything I do. Where is the balance point? What is the energy of this moment, this music? Who is my partner, where do we pivot, and what is our next step?
Less effort, more fun.
Less conflict, more business done.
Easy movement. Joy.
