Nothing in practice over at Hypha, but attended a book club last night hosted by Austin Software Co-operatives meetup: Book Review: The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age | Meetup
The book was aimed at regular companies, and about reframing the relationship with employees around being allies and honest about personal goals and paths involving departure outside org.
Aside from a neat section on “building alumni networks”, the book focuses on a model of “Tours of Duty”. If you can overlook the military analogizing, it seemed pretty helpful for both recruitment and keeping things fresh and motivating. Basically about negotiating these periods of specific goals and completion criteria (either qualitative or quantitative), which get refreshed every so often.
Here are my scratch notes: Etherpad
Mostly a delivered summary, but felt stimulating to join in. They’ll publish the video here when it’s ready: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuKYqFXPm2maicF1F13iXxZYV9IUJRRUm
