The Centre for Collaboration, Motivation & Innovation was founded in April 2012 as a non-profit organization in British Columbia, Canada.
In January 2014 CCMI became incorporated as a non-profit in the United States, and in 2016 CCMI was recognized as a 501(c)3 non-profit in the US.
We are guided by a board of volunteers who are passionate about helping people to make constructive behavioural changes.

CCMI uses a governance tool called Holacracy to help organize our team. Holacracy is a method for structuring the organization with a clear way of defining roles and accountabilities and a structure for sharing that information across the team. The philosophy of Holacracy is that individuals and teams in organizations should be empowered to self manage their own work. This is different from a traditional hierarchy where roles are often governed “from above”. If you are interested in leaning more please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out some information on the Holacracy website: https://www.holacracy.org/what-is-holacracy
