In one company I came across a "People Happiness" circle with purpose "Make sure we have happiest team members ever". Expressing that purpose, People Happiness requests projects (actually suggests OKRs) to all other company members considering their happiness and wellness like "Read 5 books this ...
Using Rep-Link vs. direct tension solvingSpot on! This proposal would probably be invalid according to Section 3.2.2Isn't RepLink role representing the whole circle on the level above? If yes then why the proposal is invalid?If not then any proposal suggested by RepLink is invalid, isn't it?
Using Rep-Link vs. direct tension solvingMax, I think that you should escalate the tension to the level above through governance only if the whole circle feels it like a tension. 2 levels above might mean that super-circle also feels this tension.If this is not the case then I would go to the role which can resolve my tension and ask di...
Gamifying Glassfrog[@mention:528792613988609658]Thank you for sharing your work! I think it's great both because it gamifies studying the rules, and also because it implements visual facilitation of the meetings.May I play your game with my Holacracy study groups?
Gamifying Glassfrog[@mention:528792613988609658] yep I'm very interested! ))I will have a chance to play with heads of companies adopting Holacracy in a week or two, so will be able to give you some feedback on the game mechanics.
Nadir, accountability is not a 'job to be done', this is an ongoing expectation of some outcome recorded in an org structure. Which role performs it within the Circle is not visible from the outside. When some accountability is assigned to the circle by super-circle, Lead Link gets it by default...
Merging two circlesAs far as I understood (and also as it is implementer in Glassfrog) you don't just merge two roles or two circles. Instead you:remove existing roles (circles);create new role (circle) with a new purpose;add need accrountabilities (roles) to this circle;As far as you see circles as simply roles fr...
NVGO Accountability?Here's Constitution article 1.1 (c):“Accountabilities”, which are ongoing activities of the Organization that the Role will enactIn my interpretation "Energizing Role" is not an ongoing activity of the role, thus this it contradicts with definition of accountability itself, and is an NVGO.
[@mention:457856795977603624] Dennis, thanks for sharing! Looking forward to find out more about Association space on Encode workshop in Amsterdam.Are Company and Association spaces' rules and tools codified somewhere (like Holacracy rules and tools in Holacracy Constitution)?
Spread of domains and/or policies[@mention:456449141667144364] I like the idea of differentiation!It sounds like we have a case with a domain / policy inheritance, and can use access modifiers from Object-Oriented programming.So we will have public domain or policy, private domain or policy or protected domain or policy.What wou...
[@mention:449693036223847456] "People Happiness" circle, based on their circle purpose, feel entitled to request projects from people, not from roles actually.Other more or less similar example I can think of, is compensation.I wonder how this situation (when a role asks for something from a pers...
[@mention:491495232183315418] thanks for reminding that pathway! But in that company this type of interactions is somehow codified in Governance via "OKR policy" and People Happiness circle. It implies that these interactions will happen regularly.Shouldn't it be somehow reflected in Governance? ...
Rockefeller HabitsOur company is using some of "Scaling Up" approaches like BHAGs and quaterly themes. I hardly see how it combines with Holacracy (I rather see how it ideologically contradicts). Would love to know more about combination of them.

Shadow Power - ResourcesHi [@mention:454478741268114544]I came across something that sounds like "Shadow powers" in this article:https://nonprofitquarterly.org...ity-self-management/They refer to French and Raven's six bases of power. Maybe it will be useful somehow in your search: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...n%27s...
