The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups

by Starhawk

Groups without formal hierarchy are potentially empowering on a mass scale. Unfortunately, we come into them from a lifetime of exposure to hierarchy, with its patterns internalized. Collaborative groups are a different species from hierarchical groups, and understanding those differences can help us make them work more effectively.

The Empowerment Manual is a comprehensive guide for those seeking to foster vision, trust, accountability and responsibility through shared power and bottom-up leadership. This desperately needed toolkit is key to: understanding group dynamics; facilitating communication and collective decision-making; dealing effectively with difficult people.

“To choose a positive future, we need the imagination, the commitment and passion that can never be commanded but can only be unleashed in groups of equals. Those groups need to work and function well. That’s why I’ve written this book.”
