Webinar: Cooperative Decision-Making Across Space
Facilitate a meaningfully democratic process for efficient and innovative decisions
February 18th at 2pm EST | Free Webinar | Concrete Tools —Registration below!
Co-presented webinar by Loomio and Round Sky Solutions
The Future of Work is moving to more and more remote collaboration. More people have the option to work from home even across the world! In addition, more leaders are craving and experience the wide array of benefits to collaboration. In our cooperative teams, the question of how we make decisions together is long lived.
Come to this webinar for collective decision-making that uses the power of the team for aligning and clarifying decisions!
There are many practices out there from voting to consensus. However, sometimes even reaching the part where your team is ready to vote on a decision is not as cooperative and democratic as you’d like it to be.
It is completely normal to feel frustrated with the sometimes… messiness and slowness experienced in collaboration. However, there are tested and proven ways to really use that energy you have in your coop in your decision-making!
It is actually a myth that cooperatives are not as efficient because the collaboration “slows” us down. You don’t need to cut corners here to get movement. In reality, the right, supportive process can make us more efficient than the hierarchical ways while also getting our team on board!
Decision-making in cooperatives can be abundant, innovative, creative, and even fun!
Come to this webinar to learn about the tools crafted by Round Sky Solutions alongside Loomio’s decision-making platform!

Feedback Practices & Strategies for Collaborative Teams
In this FREE webinar, we discussed feedback practices in collaborative teams. As cooperatives and collaborative shift to self-managing teams, it can be difficult to figure out how people give each other feedback (positive and negative) on the team and how to do it in a way that builds up leadership. It’s essential that we’re able to both receive and give feedback to our peers for our collaborative workplace to be functional and growing, and to do this on a regular basis — not only when someone holds back a project.
