Creating, modifying and deleting a tension

What is a tension?

In Holacracy, a tension is a member's feeling that there is a gap in one of their roles between the current reality and a situation that could be better in the future.

Holacracy requires that each member give the tension they feel in their roles to the intended instances (governance or tactical) in order to be processed.

The "My Tensions" section in the navigation menu allows each member to prepare their Governance proposals related to each of their tensions.
