Lead Link structuring the GovernanceI get a bit lost in translation when I try to understand one of the Accountabilities of the Lead Link: "Structuring the Governance of the Circle to enact its Purpose and Accountabilities". Can anybody try to make an example or reword it for me to better understand please?
Holacracy Habits in FrenchAt the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, we are translating the Holacracy Habits into French. Is there anybody who has already started a similar project? We would be glad to share the result/integrate others if anybody is interested.
EligibilityI would like to double check with the CoP, my understanding of the last paragraph of 2.5.1 "Elections & Eligibility" "All Core Circle Members are eligible for election" for me does not mean that ONLY Core Circle Members are eligible, but it means that everyone who is a Core Circle Members, ev...
3.3.1 interpretation3.3.1 says "In addition, the Lead Link and any Rep Links or Cross Links to the Circle may each invite up to one additional person, solely to aid the link in processing a specific Tension. The invited participant then becomes a Core Circle Member as well for the duration of that Governance Meeting...
Happy sharingI am so happy to have passed the Coaching assessment that I would like to share it here. I think it is such a speedy-learning process that I would recommend to others. Just that
Hacking governance?Yesterday I went through a new experience during a governance meeting. Somebody, experienced in Holacracy, proposed to do a "discussion" through the governance process. 3.2.2 was respected so I went through it, even if I felt necessary to add a disclaimer (on a quick timeout) on the strange exper...
I was wondering what is the tool that, in your experience, is proving as the most reliable for conducting online meetings (governance & tactical). I also need the possibility of having from one to a few people to the same place, while others are connecting remotely (always from one to many fo...
It is true that as it is formulated in the Constitution it does lead to confusion (2.3.1). In my organisation a Rep Link, who did not go to the course but who has studied in detail the Constitution, is pretty much convinced that we are doing an error inviting the Lead Link of the same circle into...
How Many is Too Many AccountabilitiesThanks Brian for highlighting that. Because of 4.1.5 ("Implicit Expectations Hold No Weight") it might seem that everything has to be explicit and by my experience the first target of those who start is deeply documenting Accountabilities. Easy to end up to a hyper documented bureaucratic governa...
Thanks Jeff, my question was just related to a discrepancy between what I have seen in the course and what it can been understood from the Constitution. I think I am done with this. Thanks a lot!
I do not think it is about feeling as friends/brothers/sisters. It is more about not living in "fear/worries". If people do not feel defensive against each others and do not feel threatened, using positive assumption more than suspicion (example of trusted environment), organizational change will...
Quick startYou need to click on a circle first, then you'll find the button on the left part of the page.
[@mention:477139080146610445]: Hello, not sure that you are addressing your question to me. If so, please let me know.@DANILA: Great news, thanks.
Holacracy Habits in FrenchHello! We have not shared this not even internally yet. I had mistakenly assumed that it was on Creative Commons and that you could have been interested into a free translation to integrate/compare with no obligation at all. No problem about not using it. Forget about it, looking forward to havin...
EligibilityI see what you mean, but I still stick to my interpretation because if I had written the Constitution I would have stated clearly that ONLY Core Circle Members are eligible. In any case I think that it is necessary to remove that ambiguity. Version 5?
Konrad Olesiewicz posted:> Objection round the proposer also states objectionsSo, we had this question about weather the Facilitator should ask the Proposer if he also has any objection. We glanced through the Constitution and did not find specifics. We partly concluded, partly recalled from H...
Objecting to unclear accountabilityGerald Mitterer posted:+1 @Chris Cowan One addition: I typically make that explicit by coaching people that "it might not be a valid objection but a valid tension though" and encourage them to sense into their need of adding it to the agenda.+1 I often say "all tensions are valid" That encourage...
Doubt about a potential case of NVGOIMO, even if it is not an NVGO, it might be appropriate to raise an objection because harm is caused by reduced clarity or by the confusion that the non-alignment of purpose and accountability is creating.
EligibilityAndrea Faré posted: as a general statement: non-core circle members cannot be elected, Ciao Andrea,Thanks a lot for you answer, I see that globally we share a similar understanding. However I would like to know in which part of the Constitution it is stated that non-core circle members cannot be...
3.3.1 interpretationMy interpretation is that she would not be able to process other tensions because she would not be able to raise valid objections. In that case, she would be a Core Circle Member for the duration of the Governance Meeting (check-in, administrative concerns, building agenda, closing) but only for ...
3.3.1 interpretationThanks for your answer. For me, this rule does not make much sense, because if she is there "solely to aid the link in processing a specific Tension" why she should work on other governance tensions probably completely out of context for her? Still puzzled.
Holacracy Habits in FrenchHello, I was wondering if there is an ETA for this. We are looking forward to getting the Holacracy Habits in French.
Holacracy is masculineI see what you mean. However, I think that, as a facilitator, you can add or emphasize more togetherness, connectedness, caring, helping, shared responsibility and flow. In other words, the process can be made more neutral even if there is a tendency on being very "masculine", as you pointed out....
EligibilityThis is still unclear to me and it has an impact on the organization I am working with. [@mention:449693036223847456] would you mind sharing your interpretation, please? Mine is that non-core circle members can also be elected, but I might be wrong, of course.
EligibilityThanks a lot for your answer, Brian. I will align my interpretation. Keep up the good excellent work.
Holacracy is masculineYep, it is true. It might feel a bit like talking about the sex of the angels (that it might be interesting too). However, I think it can be also somehow *useful* to raise that point because in my experience it is common to see strong resistance to some tough (masculine?) way of facilitating the ...
Holacracy Habits in FrenchThanks Heather for the good news, we will definitely be interested. Can you please send me the support email?
Is Holacracy a kind of democracyI believe this should be said more and more (maybe during training, but also on HolacracyOne online material) because there is a lot of misunderstanding about it that generates wrong expectations and deceiving experiences. If you know what you have you can expect the right thing from it.
