Ted Rau is co-founder of the non-profit Sociocracy For All, coaching and teaching and networking sociocracy practitioners in for-purpose organizations of all types. He is co-author of the handbook Many Voices One Song. Sharing power with sociocracy published in 2018.
A PhD linguist, his strength is in holding complexity and clarity; as a member of an intentional community, he cares about connection and healthy pragmatism. As an activist, he cares about integrity, shared ownership, and the commons. Ted cares more about connection than about status, and he can’t be anything else but himself. A workplace – or a conference – only seems appealing when he can share that he is transgender, a parent of 5 and that his official profile picture was taken by his 9-year-old daughter.
