More Like People
Change how we organise. Change the world.
‘More Like People’ (formerly Concrete Solutions) is a small group of freelancers working with non-profit, voluntary, community, social change, educational, environmental justice and non-governmental organisations and trade unions, to help reinstil a sense of humanity in the ways we organise ourselves for a better world.
They believe passionately in human potential, and want to foster systems and structures that encourage, rather than restrict it.
They offer learning from places our organisations have for too long ignored, bringing unique insights to complex and challenging organisational questions.
They thrive at the junctures between personal and organisational change; institutions and movements; social technology and face-to-face relationships.
More Like People is about a unique approach to social and organisational change, and we’d like to help your organisation to be more like people!
The book ‘Anarchists in the Boardroom’ is a journey through worker-run factories, Occupy encampments, a spattering of non-violent direct actions and even a few forward-thinking companies, to make the case for helping our organisations ‘to be more like people.’ It asks us to brush away our ‘professional’ assumptions and interact as we do when we don’t have job descriptions or business plans telling us how to change the world. It reminds us of the power each of us has to make change happen, even within the most entrenched of bureaucracies!
