The team

THE TEAM AND HOW WE ARE ORGANISED

With offices in Belgium and France, Energy Cities’ team is made up of 24 creative out-of-the-box thinkers who are pushing for positive changes in our member cities.

Each staff member is unique and so is the way we have organised the entire team. Indeed, since 2010 we are running the Energy Cities’ Secretariat using the “holacratic” method.

You are not familiar with Holacracy? This is a radically new mode of organisation and governance based on collective intelligence. The power is distributed between autonomous but closely cooperating teams (‘circles’). There is not one big boss but each of us is a leader in their own right. Responsibilities are always handled at the appropriate level (subsidiarity!): “Bottom-up” is not only a buzz word for us.

Regular operational meetings allow us to focus on next-actions, not endless analysis. Governance meetings deal with recurring issues. Major decisions are collectively decided by the management team composed of the executive and managing directors and team leaders.
