How can companies respond to rapidly changing conditions, with physical distancing and most people working remotely? A manager and team members, who may have been in the same physical space before COVID-19, are able to check in with each other less frequently and easily now. If team members always need to go to a leader or manager for decisions, that can create a bottleneck, reducing the team’s ability to respond to rapid changes.

When managers make decisions without broad team consultation, they are working from a limited perspective. People at all organizational levels often have creative ideas about challenges facing the company. If a company uses distributed leadership and coordinated decisions, decisions are made throughout the organization. Remote teams are able to make decisions more quickly without running into that decision bottleneck. And the decisions are likely to be better because they are based on more diverse information and perspectives.

All of the above is pertinent for many types of organizations. Whether you are in the C-suite of a for-profit corporation, or you are an executive director or team lead in a non-profit or community-based organization, you want to benefit from everyone’s ideas, information, and perspectives in your decision-making processes.

Collaboration in teams and organizations can be challenging in the best of times. More than ever, organizations need effective ways to collaborate, taking into account the remote modes now playing out in our world. The collaborative approaches we use support collective intelligence and have been tested for more than five decades, including during times of crisis – see our white paper. We can help.

This one-hour interactive webinar will give you insights to increase collective intelligence and get the best ideas in your organization to deal with any challenge. You will learn about organizations that have effectively navigated trying times using the Sociocratic Circle-organization Method (SCM).

The presenters – Sheella Mierson and Francine Proulx-Kenzle – will introduce you to some SCM processes, providing you a taste of adaptive and effective culture.

Leverage the collective intelligence of your team and organization. Grow your capacity to handle rapid change and complexity.
