Learn Liberating Structures and join the silent revolution

Too many meetings, too many useless meetings, too many meaningless meetings, too many unidirectional discussions, too little genuine listening, discovery and dialogue. 

The world we live in goes very fast and is constantly asking us to pay (short) attention and to consume, consume, consume. Including our conversations and meetings. We are seen as consumers, of content, of someone else’s ideas. 

Where is the appetite to make our own conversations and make them grander with others? When will we finally find ourselves in a place where all voices are valued and find their way through to solutions that are really novel, because they build on a lot more insights?

Liberating Structures immersion 2022

This is the promise of Liberating Structures:

To walk an earth where everyone is invited to join the choir and contribute their ideas, and co-create a better team, workplace, project, landscape, planet. And to do that with super simple ways of thinking, communicating and collaborating together.

Join our four-day immersion workshop and you can also change your interactions, conversations and results, with minimum effort and maximum result. Many people have taken this step and are unleashing a silent revolution onto the world. Don’t miss out, liberate yourself and people around you. Now!

What are Liberating Structures?

Liberating Structures are 33+ simple, playful and powerful methods for group participation and collaboration. They put people -everyone- at the center of thinking, designing and problem solving. Tapping into multiple intelligences and people’s creative imagination to crack issues that really matter. Liberating Structures stand for dialogue, learning and collaboration.

Most structures are incredibly simple and easy to learn and completely practical to apply instantly with any group size. They generate different results without expensive investments, complicated training, or shifts in formal structure – and they are naturally apt to explore complex, messy, nonlinear, uncertain challenges.

And crucially, Liberating Structures put YOU – and everyone else – in the driving seat. No longer a facilitation guru holding the space for everyone. You own your facilitation, collaboration, co-creation. Liberating Structures invite all our senses, our heart, mind and soul in everyday interactions.

Learning Liberating Structures is the first step of a silent revolution in how we are with each other, and what we can do together. They build trust and better relations.

Liberating Structures Immersion Workshop July 2020

Immerse yourself in Liberating Structures for a better future (and present)

Come and explore the surprising power of Liberating Structures in our immersion workshop. The people who joined one of our immersion workshops (online and face-to-face) were as enthusiastic about Liberating Structures immediately when they experienced it.

“A great way to discover tools that are out-of-the ordinary for a facilitator’s toolbox.”

Experiences from other participants

The world has changed beyond recognition: We communicate, work, collaborate and think in ways that we could not have imagined 20 years ago. Yet many organizations operate more or less in the same way. And this is where Liberating Structures can play an important role as it provides tools – and mindset – that stirs and gently shakes things up. It helps us connect with ourselves and others, making us share more honestly what is on our minds and hearts so that we can move forward together.

Lotta Adelstål, Facilitator and consultant

 

A great way to discover tools that are out-of-the ordinary for a facilitator’s toolbox. I was particularly impressed with Troika Consulting, which can really strengthen peer learning.

Riff Fullan, Helvetas, Head, Knowledge & Learning 

Great occasion to become familiar with facilitation tools that promote thinking out of the box and creativity without losing sight of the objectives, context and timing. And an excellent opportunity to get to know some very inspiring and inspired people.”

Joke Reijven, Redcross

 

The inspiring Liberating Structures workshop is the best way to get familiar with these alternative cooperation and working methods that are so helpful in the everyday work.

FAQ

I want to know more about LS before I book my ticket. Is that possible?

Yes sure, we totally understand. You can join our Broad stroke session on November 24th.

What kind of training is this?

This workshop will be absolutely and entirely interactive! No long lecture, no heavy Powerpoint presentations. Instead, some very brief framing and guidance and we all hop on to some action, and individual and/or collective reflection. Learning by experience. 

How can I ensure I will be able to use these skills back at work?

That is a really excellent question! Of course this depends first and foremost on you creating opportunities for this to happen, but we have planned a session where you will be given a chance to design your own LS-enabled meeting or event, tailored to your context. And another session will allow you to practice newly acquired skills with other participants.

I am not sure if this is for me. Can we have a chat?

Sure! Contact us on Linkedin or by sending an e-mail.

Where is the workshop taking place and how can I reach it?

It’s totally online! Easy as that. We will use Zoom and a simple and free online collaboration tool

I have ordered a ticket, but I cannot attend myself. Can I transfer my ticket to a colleague?

Yes, you can transfer your ticket to a colleague. Let us know so that we can personally welcome your colleague and send you the necessary information.

I have bought a ticket but I can no longer attend. Do I get my money back?

What a pity that you cannot be present. If you cancel before December 5, 2021, we will refund your ticket less an admin fee of €50,-. After December 5 we will not make refunds, but you are welcome to transfer your place to someone else. 

Do I get a certificate?

Liberating Structures is an all-expert approach that is available open-source. We don’t hand out certificates. We are happy to produce a confirmation for you.

I still have questions. Who should I contact?
