Assistant Professor of Leadership and Movements
Tyson Casey is a professional coach, facilitator, and educator whose work centers on a simple truth:leadership is an action anyone can practice.
Before graduating in 2010 from Starr King School for the Ministry’s Master of Arts in Social Change (MASC) program, Tyson solidified his vision to cultivate just, equitable, accessible, and regenerative communities – where power is dispersed, where agency is exercised, where informed consent is the status quo. To create conditions for this vision, he employs experiential, academic, somatic, and participatory methods.
Through staff, board, contractor, and volunteer positions and partnerships with local to international institutions, Tyson refined his vision and methods in a wide variety of settings, from corporate and nonprofit organizations to small group and one-on-one coaching.
His research and practice interests include participatory governance, non-hierarchical and regenerative systems, social change movements, political economy, interlocking systems of domination and liberation, leadership assessment and evaluation, group decision-making and consensus building, cooperative visioning and strategies, mutual aid, conflict transformation, time and energy management, taiji, qigong, mediation, biomimicry, Buddhism, Taoism, and Christianity.
Tyson’s writing has been published in St. Petersburg Times, The Fuse, Seeds of Peace, Turning Wheel, and Tikkun.
In addition to his professional work, Tyson is a passionate Kado practitioner, avid science fiction reader, and continual learner. He lives in Fresno, CA with his spouse and their elderly Italian Greyhound.
