Missing a Holacracy Meeting

Today I missed my first Holacracy governance meeting due to a board meeting I was required to attend.  Being the company champion of Holacracy I worried a bit that without me present the meeting wouldn’t happen, or worse yet something would happen in the meeting to cause everyone to become disenfranchised with Holacracy.  I think it’s a common fear that entrepreneurs have about anything they are involved with, and common among parents leaving their kids somewhere for the first time.  We all imagine the worst.

Anyway, I was very happy to find out that it was quite the opposite.  The meeting happened right on schedule, and afterwards I received an e-mail from Glassfrog reporting that five new roles had been created and one existing role had been modified.  I spoke to our facilitator and he said it was a great meeting and that everyone is starting to get into the flow and understand and appreciate the process. 

Having everyone just as engaged without me being there is what I was hoping for.  That way I know that they understand and believe in the system and aren’t just doing it when I’m there to appease me.
