Event description
Wondering what can be liberated in your work? 

Unwittingly, the conventional ways that people routinely meet, think and work together result in some or all of the symptoms listed above. Conventional structures are either too inhibiting (presentations, status reports and managed discussions) or too disorganized (open discussions and brainstorms) to creatively engage people in achieving the outcomes they desire. They frequently generate feelings of frustration and/or exclusion and fail to provide space for risk-taking or good ideas to emerge and flourish. This means that huge amounts of time and money are spent working the wrong way, and more time and money are then spent trying to fix the unintended consequences. 
In this practical, two-day workshop, you’ll gain hands-on experience of Liberating Structures, a field-tested, results-focused collection of engagement structures which include everyone in shaping the future. You will leave equipped with a rich and adaptable toolkit to unleash the creativity and talent of everyone on your team, workgroup, or organization.
What are Liberating Structures?
Liberating Structures are simple, elegant and easy shifts in the methods we use to bring people together to talk, think and solve problems together. They are called “liberating” because they are designed to include and engage everybody – liberating, so to speak, everybody’s contributions and deeply held wisdom and creativity. They stimulate better conversations, deeper thinking, and greater engagement.
Taken individually, each of the 33+ methods change the way results are generated by a group. As a repertoire of complementary methods, they address many chronic challenges faced by groups. The precise and simple way each Liberating Structure is specified makes it possible for anyone to quickly start using them.
