Participation


POP Overview

Strengthen owner engagement and improve competitive advantage!

The Power of Participation (POP) program drives business success by elevating
the value of innovative participation in all systems, processes and activities of the co-op. While the scope is broad, the focus is very specific: build connectedness, loyalty and trust to support a sense of service and belonging as people work together to create a vibrant, cooperative culture.

Using an ongoing systematic approach, CDS CC consultants will work with you to optimize the complex structure of relationships among your co-op’s participants to make sustained changes that result in operational efficiencies and high quality communication throughout the co-op.

Mix and match POP support services to meet your specific needs and priorities with the added benefit of a long-term relationship with CDS Consulting Co-op.
