I work with Sam Burnett (above) and want to put another plug in here about humans and holacracy. I think it is very important to help the humans adapt to the change of holacracy in respectful ways. Certain things may push anyone's buttons in any way and in any work structure. Having a change imposed or being too forceful in communication can generate resistance to change. Being clear and respectful (and indeed compassionate) as people experience change builds a strong person, work team and environment that can weather the ups and downs of everything we experience in our work life.
Part of our organization's mission is helping others with change at personal, organizational and community levels. There is much to learn from these fields that can help with holacracy implementation.
