The Holacracy® Facilitation Assessment is designed to both assess and reinforce your ability to facilitate and coach a circle installing the new habits required for the adoption of Holacracy.
This assessment is a live governance meeting simulation that you facilitate and coach. Depending on your performance, you may be able to obtain the Holacracy Facilitator or Holacracy Coach credentials for a period of 2 years. This assessment is reserved for people who have already passed the practitioner assessment.
Please Note: Currently these credentials are earned by passing this assessment of a Governance Meeting only. As the Licensing and Certification Programs evolve to meet the demands of a maturing global Holacracy movement, a separate and additional component will be added from April 2018; an equivalent assessment for a Tactical Meeting. Once this is launched, passing both the Tactical and Governance Facilitation Assessments will be required to be taken separately and passed at coach level to earn the Certified Holacracy Coach credential.
A Learning Opportunity
More than an assessment, this simulation is also a great opportunity to practice your facilitation and coaching skills in a safe environment. You will receive ample feedback to help you hone your facilitation skills.
The Holacracy Facilitator or Holacracy Coach credentials may be obtained as a result of passing this assessment. The threshold is of course different for each credential: a certified Facilitator needs to be able to facilitate a newly practicing circle, while a certified Coach must additionally be able to provide them appropriate coaching. More details on the different expectations for each credential on the Licensing & Certification page.
How it works
You will be facilitating a 2-hour online Governance meeting for a simulated company. Two certified Holacracy Coaches will play the circle members and will follow a standard script. The two assessors will score your facilitation & coaching during the assessment and will provide feedback after each agenda item.
Currently the assessment can only be delivered in English.
