A Self-Directed or Coach-Led, step-by-step online program for adopting self-organization in your team or organisation, at your own pace

DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR TO YOU?

  • YOU HEAR ABOUT NEW WAYS OF WORKING/SELF-MANAGEMENT/SELF-ORGANIZING/ HOLACRACY®/ SOCIOCRACY… BUT DON'T FULLY UNDERSTAND THEM...
  • YOU FILL IN THE GAPS WITH YOUR OWN ASSUMPTIONS, AND GET ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT HOW YOU THINK IT WORKS...
  • YOU TRY OUT SOME NEW THINGS, BUT WITHOUT FULLY SHIFTING THE FOUNDATIONS OF HOW AUTHORITY IS STRUCTURED
  • YOU MAYBE HOPE THAT CLARIFYING ROLES & DECISION-MAKING AUTHORITY WILL ALSO RESOLVE POWER DYNAMICS & THE DIFFICULT ISSUES BETWEEN PEOPLE
  • YOU MAYBE HIRE A COACH WHO FACILIATES NEW MEETING PROCESSES AND TELLS PEOPLE WHAT TO DO DIFFERENTLY- WITHOUT GIVING THEM ACTUAL TOOLS & SUPPORT FOR HOW TO ACTUALLY MAKE THOSE CHANGES
  • BUT PEople aren't processing their tensions- why not??!!
  • OK, SO MAYBE A FEW THINGS IMPROVE SUPERFICIALLY, BUT THE GREAT THINGS YOU HAD HOPED FOR HAVEN’T HAPPENED, OR DON'T STICK; THE OLD HABITS ARE WINNING...
  • SO YOU ABANDON IT WITH RESIGNATION: 'WELL IT ALL SOUNDED GREAT IN THEORY, BUT DOESN'T REALLY WORK IN PRACTICE!'

    IF SO, DO YOU WANT TO


    Adopt the latest version of Holacracy or other Self-Organizing ways of working, in a structured and flexible way, which introduces new material with time and support to embed new practices so that they really stick?


    THEN JOIN OUR SELF-ORGANIZATION ADOPTION PROGRAM

    Holacracy is considered by many as the gold-standard way to self-organize by optimising operations and distributing authority through a robust governance process. 

    So the program uses the latest v5 of the Holacracy Constitution as the framework for organising work. As you go through the program you can choose to ADOPT OR ADAPT each article of the Holacracy Constitution, step-by-step as needed. Or for a lighter approach simply adapt some of the self-organizing practices which are included without a constitution. 

    The 5 Modules of the Program


    Module 1 Foundations of Self-Organizing
    Defining Roles, Processing Tensions & Developing a Trusted System
    (Article 1)

    The first and foundational pieces which need to be in place before trying more advanced self-organizing practices.


    Rules of Cooperation
    (Article 2)

    Roles rely on each other without Managers for Responses/Transparency/Priority Alignment.

    More Info & Registration

    Tactical Meetings
    (Article 3)

    Effective operational meetings to sync-up, align, quickly remove obstacles and identify next steps.

    More Info & Registration

    Distributed Authority
    (Article 4)

    When authority is distributed & power shifts, intelligence from the system comes into coherence.


    Governance Process
    (Article 5)

    A clear process for distributing authority with role clarity and accountability.

    More Info & Registration

    Each part of the program covers one article of v5 of the Holacracy Constitution

    You may choose to adopt or adapt each article as needed

    there's no need to adopt the articles in the order they are in the Constitution, THOUGH THE FOUNDATIONS ARE NEEDED FIRST!

    About Your Instructor- Nick Osborne


    Welcome to Evolving Organisation- we are thrilled that you are here!

    Since the mid 1990's I have been studying, researching, experimenting with, practicing and training people how to improve how they work together in teams and organisations. I've worked with thousands of people, (including as a Partner with HolacracyOne, the organization that founded Holacracy) and have distilled the lessons I've learned into a series of online programmes and expert support.

    As the Founder of Evolving Organisation I take the lead on the work and bring in other people from a wide network of expertise as needed. My intention is to help you improve how well your teams are adapted to surviving and thriving in our complex and changing world. My purpose is to inspire, equip and support Changemakers to make changes.

    What Participants are Saying

    • I wonder what we would have done if the program wasn’t here- we would probably be doing a version of Holacracy that doesn’t really work.
    • I would highly recommend Nick's program to any senior management team, or team, that simply wants to work better and get more done; and be happier in the process.

    • I'm honestly not sure what we would have done without Nick and his amazing program! We'd always had big aspirations of establishing self-management in our organisation and supporting everyone to step into their power, we just hadn't quite worked out how to do this in practice.

      This program, along with Nick's insight, wisdom and guidance, has really helped us make these aspirations a reality.

    • Sometimes you hear something and you think you understand it.

      But then you hear it explained in a different way or context and suddenly you realise you'd not really seen or understood the full picture.

      I feel like that about this point.  So yes I'll review the video again and keep thinking about this and then incorporate it into the training for our organization.  You're right, I don't think people are really getting this point in our organization.

    • The program has been designed really thoughtfully and systematically. Nick introduces a few key practices every month. These practices are relevant for all organisations wanting to raise their game. 

    • Over time these practices have had a transformative impact not just on us as an organisation but they have also empowered us as individuals to really step into our roles and contribute to co-creating the organisation. 

    • The practices are creating the conditions for true distribution of authority and empowerment to emerge - something I've never experienced before and which feels really radical and liberatory.

    • I can't recommend Nick and this program highly enough!

    • Leading an organisation is hard. Nick's program, coaching and guidance has made it easier. We have shifted attitudes and behaviours so that everyone now plays their part in leading the organisation. That's everyone now doing something when they spot there's an opportunity, a risk, an issue, or a grumble.

    • Everyone's managing their tasks better, and there's more trust and less need to maintain oversight as a result. We're becoming a more mature organisation, and I'm finding my job, and my work relationships, much more pleasurable as a result.
