Thanks for your thoughtful response. I appreciate the nuance of it. For your points 1 and 2-this sounds like how we are thinking about things at the moment (even if we haven't articulated it as well as you) . For #3. I think that we were feeling this way but hadn't clearly figured out how to articulate it and also if others might have a different perspective on how that relationship adheres to the rules of the game. I think we are interpreting things the same way you are (again without having articulated it as clearly).
It fascinating to me how much of this practice is having a general understanding the rules and then getting ongoing affirmation of your team's interpretations of the more subtle/nuanced/complex ways that roles and circle interact.
I appreciate the community for this function. Thank you!
