As a BROJO member, you are granted access to our online communities and forums.
These communities are safe spaces where we seek to create the best environment possible for people to be vulnerable and work through their life challenges.
As a member of our community, you agree to abide by our Code of Conduct.
Many people in our communities are dealing with intense and difficult emotions and challenging life situations. They may struggle to express themselves clearly.
Group members may have;
As such, patience and respect are essential in your communications within the BROJO community.
Repeated or severe violations of BROJO's Code of Conduct will result in being muted, or banned, at the moderator's discretion.
Our rules are few, and simple.
BROJO has no tolerance for bigotry or prejudice. We do not support any worldview which preaches hatred toward any group of humans. If anything like this comes up, you will be challenged on it. We’re all human and have our biases, all we ask is that you do not disrespect others.
Direct personal attacks, bullying, and name-calling will not be tolerated. There is never a justification for these types of behaviors. If you disagree with someone, great, enjoy the fact that you were just challenged emotionally.
Shit-posting, posts which have zero value, or posts designed to be inflammatory, will be deleted. Repeat offenders will be banned. Real questions are welcome, Give value, ask real questions, and learn.
Personal growth is challenging, and we embrace deep sharing and vulnerability in this journey together. Everything said in our groups, meetings, events, online forums etc. needs to be considered private and kept confidential.
BROJO is about self-development. You are joining a community of people who want to become better. Our responsibility to you is to help you identify where you’re holding yourself back...
Think of us as your gym. If we see you taking a nap on the weight bench, we may have to kick your butt ( and you should absolutely do the same for others, including the coaches ).
We are not an echo chamber. Expect feelings of confrontation.
BROJO focuses is on individual self-development and us not a business networking / sales group. No marketing or selling to members is permitted.
For entrepreneurs - if you’re an entrepreneur, we have a special entrepreneur’s group for those who are keen to build product / service-based businesses. Here we focus on supporting and learning from each other, collaborating, and developing skills & techniques such as marketing, market testing, collaboration, outsourcing, hiring. and more.
Try to avoid posts that appear designed to incite emotional reactions. Authentic problems need to be described authentically, with the details of your personal struggle.
How to Post well;
Respond with Respect;
When you feel provoked, ask yourself “why am I feeling this way?”
Great! We want this to happen regularly. Our goal here isn't to confirm the perspectives & biases of everyone in our group, or to thicken the walls of our comfort zones.
Our purpose is to challenge our thinking, expand our awareness of the world and the other humans that inhabit it.
Our goal, together, is to develop our emotional resilience and maturity as individuals.
If you feel overly confronted by a post-
Understand that not everyone has the skills you do-
If you're feeling over-triggered, or have nothing valuable to add, just stay silent, and observe your emotions. They're all yours.
Remember that at any given moment, 90% of our community is silently watching and learning from your behavior.
Assume that you don't understand the situation, and that the person is unable to express themselves clearly. Ask for clarification or details that will help you respond.
Manage your emotions, and post your questions or concerns clearly and concisely, without aggression or malice.
Watch out for the Bandwagon Effect, also known as mob behavior. You will be emotionally influenced by the reactions of others. Your mind will see it as justification for your anger, and you will feel more tempted to join in attacks.
Actively make this a safe community for everyone, so that anyone, no matter how anxious, can feel safe posting their questions or concerns with no fear of adverse judgement or personal attacks.
Our approach is constantly evolving, as the group grows.
It’s OK to feel provoked, but that’s your own challenge to deal with. Own it and manage your reactions.
When in doubt, contact us!
If you’re uncertain about any of the above, or have any questions, contact us!
