GTD for Teams & Circles
A Free Webinar with Brian Robertson

Do you ever struggle with productivity? As with any skill, it takes practice. And on a team scale? It can get messy!

That's why HolacracyOne co-founder Brian Robertson is hosting a free webinar on how to use Getting Things Done® for more than just personal productivity.


Holacracy is the practice of putting AGILE concepts to work on Organizational areas outside of IT.  This was developed by Brian Richardson who spoke to us in person in 2012 timeframe in Lionville.

( There is a lot of feedback circles up and down the org. chart - and a lot of "Councils of Three" )

This is pretty interesting if you have not heard or read about it.

  • Learn about organizational habits that come from a “Waterfall / Predict & Control” mindset, and get a first-hand feel for Holacracy’s “Dynamic Steering” alternatives
  • Experience the Integrative Decision-Making process used by teams in the transformative Governance Meetings, and see how it integrates multiple perspectives
  • Experience Holacracy's lightning-quick, action-focused Tactical Meetings 
  • Interactively explore Holacracy’s self-organizing structure and double-linking paradigm and learn how it scales and links Agile teams to the rest of the
