Free Webinar on Cleaning up Power Dynamics
Tuesday, March 19th at 1pm EST — Registration below!
We all want humanizing processes and healthy power flows. However all too often, our cooperatives and mission driven organizations unwittingly recreate the destructive power dynamics and uncomfortable situations that we’re trying to replace!
It takes some examining, unlearning, and integrating of new structures to help us create the workspaces that we dream of.
We need new ways for power to flow through our teams and organizations. Developing humanizing and collaborative processes can help guide us in our work together.
In this interactive webinar, we’ll dive into a framework to analyze the power (both harmful or generative) dynamics in your team using an organizational tool: The Power Matrix. We’ll share our organizational analysis of power, discuss how power affects every facet of our work lives, and most importantly we’ll give you tips you can use everyday to use collaborative power generatively through shifting power in your communications, meetings, agreements, and more!
*This is a part of our spring cleaning power challenge for generative practices in our teams!
- A new understanding of those challenging power dynamics in cooperative and collaborative teams
- A framework for analyzing how power shows up in our work together
- Actions for shifting unhealthy power dynamics to generative power dynamics
- Hands-on work to strengthen democratic processes

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.
