Holacracy Community of Practice Archive, 2015-2019 Community Holacracy Web Site

Community 'chapter' in the Netherlands (w/ Online Presence too!!)

Hello,

After last week's Practitioners Training, some of us expressed the intention to gather from time to time and share experiences.

If you have the intention of participating, please post here or contact me at leandroqm AT gmail.com.

-- We will use English during the meetings!

If we grow and there is enough interest, I could host some meetings here in Haarlem (10m from Amsterdam CS by Train).

If you have another place in mind, feel free to suggest it.

One thing that we will definitely make use of is an online meeting system so people can participate online as well.
We can use Zoom (http://zoom.us) to create virtual rooms of up to 100 participants, so you do not need to be in the Netherlands to participate.

I hope to see you soon so we can catch up!

With kind regards,
Leandro.

Hello everyone!
We had a lovely brainstorm on friday.
Here is the video recording:

And here is the meeting notes / decisions:

Brainstorming Session - Meeting notes

Meetings

  • The meetings will be facilitated
  • On the first meeting we will:
    • try to Discover our Purpose
    • set up the initial structure on GlassFrog
  • Format
    • Online meetings are a certainty (will always happen)
    • Physical meetings are "very likely" to happen frequently too
  • About the possibility of a Physical meeting in our first encounter, it depends
    • on the confirmation for a place to hold the first and/or multiple meetings
    • a system to manage attendees
  • Physical meetings would have to
    • Be sponsored, or
    • Ask for small contribution of each participant (around € 5, for food and beverages), or
    • Use the "bring your own food/drink" style

 

  • Suggest to members to invite newbies to the group as their questions are very useful

 

  • Subjects for the first meeting:
    • Facilitating meetings when you are filling multiple roles in the Circle
    • Gather more information about people's needs in terms of Holacracy to approach them in the meetings
    • Discussion: how to deal with 'normal company's problems and issues' within a Holocratic company
      • Investors
      • Compensation
      • Work Council
      • Board
      • others
  • Structure for the Chapter/Community
    • We use the community forums of Holacracy (you are in it!)
    • We use Slack/Microsoft Teams (see link below for experimental Slack space)
    • We use GlassFrog (See link below for org in GlassFrog)

 

The First (real) Event will happen in a day still to be chosen between Jan-28 and Feb-10.


We still do not know if the event will be online only or if we will meet in person as well - I will keep you posted on Slack and here.

With kind regards,
Leandro.

Great initiative Leandro! 

I would like to participate (I have filled the Google Form).  I am in Mexico, and would like to participate for a while to maybe do something similar in Spanish. 

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone!

I came back from a Holiday and found myself swamped in the things that accumulated over that period.

If anyone would like to take over and organize our first meeting, that would be awesome.
Otherwise, we will have to postpone it by a few weeks.

I received a lot of emails, so I am sorry that I did not reply to all of them yet.
This group did not even really start and it is a success already!
So thank you all that joined our Slack, sent emails and participated in the Brainstorm meeting!! :-)

Hello Charlotte,

My bad, I did not change the option to make it so it never expires.

This one will not expire: https://join.slack.com/t/holac...kMWE4YzgzZjBhYjZhYjQ

I will edit my other posts to have this link instead. :-)
