Fewer Meetings, Better Decisions

We adopted dynamic governance and all of a sudden there is a room full of empowered people helping make decisions. People feel different. I’d say that at the end of 100% of our circle meetings - where we set policy - everyone says, 'My goodness. I feel so much more energized.' We have fewer meetings over time as we’ve implemented Dynamic Governance, the decisions are better, and the follow-through is better because everyone’s on board.

A Collective Effort Like no Other

When we set up the International Movement Teachers Association we wanted to create a genuinely inclusive organisation run on a less hierarchical model. It’s been quite a journey - learning new ways of being - transparency, equivalence...passing decisions of to those responsible for the area of work - and letting them get on with it! We ended up with a lot more than we had bargained for. More hard-work in some ways...but also a collective effort like no others, and intelligent decision-making that genuinely stems from collaboration and creativity. The biggest surprise for many of us is how heart-warming the process is - and how it supports the making of bonds between us.

Giving Volunteers an Essential Voice

Dynamic governance has helped our membership and attendance at events expand tremendously. Now our volunteers show up, do great work running the dances, and come back to do more. I think they really know they have an essential voice in the organization.

Access Collective Intelligence

It's phenomenal how it accesses and makes available all the intelligence in the group.
