The 10 Principles of a holarchy
1 - Care
Care for True North. Care for what you do. Care for people around you.
1 - CareCare for True North. Care for what you do. Care for people around you.
2 - LeadershipEveryone leads in anything: what they do, how they think and what they believe. Servant leaders never stop to serve, enable or inspire others.
3 - EngagementParticipate. Contribute where you can. Engage others. Take responsibility.
4 - DecentralEvery holon is autonomous. There are no directed dependencies. There is no "HQ".
5 - InformalEverything is subject to the current need. There is no prescribed form for anything.
6 - PracticalDo what works, don't what doesn't. What works in your holon may not work in another.
7 - RespectEveryone has something to contribute. You may need to discover what that is.
8 - Non-judgmentalJust because you disagree doesn't mean they are wrong.
9 - OpennessEverybody's perspective is limited. You grow by seeing through other's eyes.
10 - VoluntaryEverything you do is your choice. Nobody must agree to anything.
ConclusionThese principles are not open to customization or "adjustment for pragmatic purposes". If a single principle of holarchy is broken, the entire structure is threatened. Holarchies are fragile and require continuous attention.
Establishing these principles takes years. There will be a lot of setbacks. Failure, getting up and improving are the normal. Regardless of what you see or what happens - never abandon these principles and do your best to keep them.
