Board Minutes April 2018

Meeting Date: 
16 Apr 2018

Attendees: Barry, Mark, Karen, Harold, Kevin


1st order of business. The board plans to make Barry an official member during the next board meeting.


1st discussion topic: Opening Space - Leadership w/o positional authority. This topic came up originally in NYC in 2018. Barry mentioned how Harrison always prepared his own space. He would leave about 15 minutes before everybody started showing up. He wouldn’t show back up until the space was ready to be opened. When Barry asked Harrison why he did this, Harrison said it was because he didn’t want to be seen as an authority figure. For 20 years, Barry has been aware of the impact of positional authority has on the dynamics of a group


To explore this topic further, Harold recommended a movie called the 13th warrior and a book called The Origins of the Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. In the book, they discuss how some people had the capacity to hear the voice of spirit. Also, the Anatomy of Peace book talks about we should not look at people as objects.


Barry mentions how in the Army, the Master Sargent is the person who knows how to get stuff done.


Mark mentioned SAFAATMRH which equates to Stay away from acronyms as they make reading hard.


2nd discussion topic; Harold has proposed increasing the boards contribution to qiquot chat from $7/moth to  $15/month. The board did not have unanimous consent, so this topic has been tabled until the next meeting. 


3rd discussion topic: Harold brought up the book Exponential Organizations and it’s connection to Singularity Institute. Some discussion occurred around Otto Sharmer and his book Theory U. 


The next board meeting will be on May 15, 2018.


Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
