Reply to Default Role: "Partner"

The entire point of assigning roles is exactly so that people don't bring tensions from this undifferentiated point of view.

We want them to have to define their tension as coming from a Role and if they can't bring it from the POV of a Role, we want them to understand that that tension is not valid for the current Governance or Tactical meeting.

For tensions related to human issues like you discussed, I suggest setting up a Role that works with those issues.  For example, we have an @EmployeeHappiness role.
