Shareable.com quoted me on cooperative leadership
The author explores the benefits of building a cooperative infrastructure for getting work done. She used my thoughts to conclude so please read to the end!
In the US, most cooperatives are formed around buying high quality natural foods and/or housing but more and more coops are arising in energy, financial and services fields.
This article is a great international take on how the cooperative model not only supports democracy, but also helps create infrastructures for organizations that keep people happy and healthy financially, physically and socially.
At a time when we desperately need to reinvent business as usual, this article sheds a lot of light on what works when people operate in partnership with one another rather than in servitude to a dominator infrastructure.
