"If this was my company, what would I do?"
In a Holacracy-powered organization, there are no more managers.
With authority clear and distributed, no one has to tiptoe around an issue to build buy-in, or push to get others to see things the same way they do. This frees people to take
action confidently, knowing that a legislative process has granted them that authority with due input and consideration. And at the time same, someone with clear autonomy is free to ask for help, input, and dialogue, and others are free to give it and pitch their opinions, without any risk of the process devolving to a consensus deadlock or an autocratic decree from a busy leader too far removed from the issue. As soon as the
authority holder gets enough input to confidently make a decision, he or she can comfortably cut off the dialogue, thank those involved, and make that decision. And all of this builds greater flexibility, responsiveness, and adaptability into the organization.
It also liberates the creative energy of former managers in surprising and powerful ways. To return to our earlier analogy, if the human body weren't a distributed-authority system, with the various cells, organs, and systems each holding clear autonomy, authority, and responsibility, the conscious mind would have a huge management burden.
