That is what Holacracy offers: the minimal structure and rules of the game make it possible for you to accelerate in your roles.

An unexpected boost for team spirit
“What I did not expect to happen is for difficult subjects to be discussed more often because of Holacracy. This creates a much more open culture, a big benefit! Teambuilding really gets a boost because annoyances, including non-work-related irritations, are shared much earlier. As a team we can now prevent things from escalating. In addition, we are even able to nip a lot of politics in the bud.
The tensions we feel are often very intuitive. Holacracy offers security and assurance to make latent irritations and bottlenecks quick and easy to discuss. This varies from simple things like cleaning dirty dishes to discussing issues such as racism and sexism.
I am convinced that our culture would never have become so mature without Holacracy. I thought we were already a very open, flat and transparent organization. But when I now see what discussions have become possible, I realize that before I was awake but not aware.
We are only at the beginning. Holacracy has even more potential when I look at the growth curve of our people, the team and myself. Our adventure has only just begun.”
