Reply to Values In Holacracy

By davidlp Topic posted 02/08/2019

[@mention:577633875651499938], we've been running Holacracy since November 2016 and distributing the values-mindset can be a challenge. The focus on "purpose" helps align new personalities in the organization. My challenge was that as co-founder and vision-bearer, all these values were in my head and meant something specific to me. Getting the values out of my head helped others, since they cannot sense my gut...

The Bain list is field tested from the consumer PoV and provides common language and definitions for internal conversations. The Storybrand framework also provides a process for embedding values in the organization's external and internal conversation. My frustrations have decreased since getting the values out of my head/gut and trusting others in the organization  to discuss and evolve the expression of our values.

I look forward to hearing more from you as you tackle this crucial element.
