FASST – an experiment in learning and holacracy

Posted by & filed under Open Letters.

Hi Gavin and William. I’m writing to you together this time, because of the way you have both been helping me to explore ideas around my holacracy experiment. In this open letter I’ll try to bring the two conversations together. Naming the thing William and I have been referring to the experiment in terms of… Read more »

Pam’s FASST Experiment!

Posted by & filed under Open Letters.

Hi Gavin Thank you for your response to my open letter to you i.e. Pamela in #holacracy mode, with its heart-searching about the nameless yet-to-be-launched holacracy and its boundary.  Thanks for saying you’d think about what I might call the holacracy, and then following up with an email that you said I could share. I’ve… Read more »

Pamela in #holacracy mode

Posted by & filed under Open Letters.

Hi Gavin, This is the what I’ve been thinking since our conversation yesterday about the holacracy launch, the challenge of defining the boundary, and who/what is inside. We’ve done diagrams together of the boundary. We’ve agreed that “what comes first is the people”. Where does that leave us? Given it’s “my holacracy experiment” I shouldn’t… Read more »

House-shares, #holacracy, chickens and eggs.

Posted by & filed under Open Letters.

Hi Brian, This open letter springs from our Skype catch up on how our lives are going, especially the bit about house/flat shares and holacracy (in the context of  U.Lab, Teal, your Meditation Group and more).

Evolutionary purpose, callings, beliefs and passions

Posted by & filed under Open Letters.

Hi Brent. Regarding evolutionary purpose you asked for our thoughts on the final sentence in this quote: “For organizations like Fitzii, the purpose of the company isn’t dictated from above, or ever set in stone. Rather, the purpose is considered to be evolving as the organization evolves. In this view, no one “creates” the purpose…. Read more »

#Dadamac and Synergy with Teal

Posted by & filed under Open Letters.

Hi William, I’m returning to our shared interest in Teal, and how that ties in with Dadamac’s Big Vision, as described in Practical 21st Century “Big Vision” and #Dadamac. I’m going to explore a few aspects of Teal organisations that seem particularly aligned with Dadamac, either as it is now or how it will become… Read more »

The challenge of “wordifying” experiential knowledge

Posted by & filed under Open Letters.

Hi Willam, We were discussing our mutual problem of flipping over from a state of “having knowledge gained through deep experience and enquiry” into a state of “sharing whatever knowledge others would find useful”. We talked about the process of “wordifying” things, i.e. “talking them through” (or writing them). We considered how “wordifying” is part… Read more »
