Centre Français de Sociocratie Sociocratie: La fin du management ? Le billet de ce jour fait suite à de nombreuses suggestions que j’ai reçues de me pencher sur la sociocratie, en particulier suite à mon billet précédent sur l’effet d’échelle. Les articles sur la sociocratie font souvent référence à la cybernétique et aux « systèmes complexes », ce qui a également aiguisé ma curiosité.

6 Of The Best Pieces of Advice From Successful Writers I’ve been reading some advice from successful writers lately and exploring what their routines are like to see what I can learn about Here are six of the most common pieces of advice I came across that have helped me a lot improving my writing here at Buffer. It also features actionable tips for you on how to implement them in your own writing. 1. I write because it comes out — and then to get paid for it afterwards? Unlike Charles Bukowski, writing well doesn’t come so easily for a lot of us (including me). The pure effort of writing is hard enough, but coupled with the pain of putting your work out into the world and letting others judge it, this can be enough to stop you from getting started at all. The trick to overcoming this isn’t easy, but it’s surprisingly effective: give yourself permission to write badly, and just start. Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird wrote an excellent essay on why writers must start with horrible drafts: (Great infographic from Copyblogger) 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Laird's Greatest Hits — Ecovillage Education US JULY 9th, 2014: Consensus 101 Making decisions by consensus is an unnatural act. At least it is for people raised in a hierarchic and competitive culture--which is just about everybody. We'll go over the cooperative roots of consensus and explain why it requires unlearning old adversarial responses in order to succeed. We'll go over the essential ingredients of consensus, explain blocking and standing aside, and make the case for why it's the most efficient form of decision making, once you've learned how to do it well.

We seem to rely on reasonableness, diligence, honesty, and, above all, solidarity of our fellow humans, but people are also uncaring, idle, and unreliable egotists. More than guaranteeing the familiar tolerant attitude to minorities and individuals who deviate from the norm, we must systematically guarantee optimum tolerance for each individual and group when establishes rules for decision-making. And that guarantee comes from.... The previous three paragraphs are quoted and paraphrased from Gerard Endenburg's book Sociocracy: The organization of decision-making .
