Within the organizational circles of the Center for Human Emergence we are guided by chaordic design for the creation of our purpose and principles. Our policy and decision-making processes are supported by ways of Holacracy. In addition, over the years, we experienced that the use and creation of specific languaging opens the space for new energy and application to come into action. A typical example is the unconventional names for the roles in which those who are active within CHE describe our accountabilities.

The Purpose and Principles are described here, the current roles can be found here.

As a governing body, CHE is organized in collaborating self-organizing teams (circles), with a high degree of autonomy. All circles decide on there own definition of roles and accountabilities, depending on the needs for fulfillment of the circle’s purpose. As part of the connection to the entire CHE, each circle has representatives linked to the other circles to ensure swift, precise and efficient information sharing and feedback.

As a movement, CHE is jointly created and organized by and through each participant, who feels the intrinsic impulse to do so. This is done in the shape of salons, constellations, projects and gatherings to participate in or to be initiated by you in collaboration with CHE.

As a formal organization, CHE is a foundation with three board members. Two of them fulfill roles within the Alignment Circle.

“It’s not that we need to form new organizations. It’s simply that we have to awaken to new ways of thinking. I believe it makes no sense to spend a lot of time attacking the current realities. It is time to create the new models that have in them the complexity that makes the older systems obsolete. And to the extent that we can do that, and do that quickly, I think we can provide what will be necessary for a major breakthrough for the future.” – Don Beck, grondlegger van CHE International
