Collaboration matters!

How we work together is at the heart of good work and creating real change. Meetings and workshops are the cornerstones of our collaborations. 

Yet so many (online) meetings are dull, dry, dreary, dreadful. They sap our soul and miss the magic. How can that be?

  • Do you want more human, humane and relational collaboration? 
  • Are you keen to hear all voices and perspectives in your meetings?
  • Do you want to experience engagement with high energy and enthusiasm? Effectiveness, elation and elevation?

It is possible! And we have an open secret for it. For you!

Own your meetings

Very often, meetings are not great because we’re just passive consumers. Someone else decides and does everything for us. 

Own your meetings, and change them from the inside!

With the know-how of Liberating Structures in your backpack you are able to influence how you meet and interact with your team, partners, clients, etc. 

Leave the sideline and become one of the key players in the meetings you attend, call for, lead or facilitate. (Co-)facilitate them with your team or network, and make magic happen!

With Liberating Structures a whole new world of seriously fun and effective collaboration opens up for you!

Liberating Structures – the social antidote to a toxic world

Our interactions will only get better if we are playing an active role in them. It’s about making choices that really matter to us!

LS is about owning our voice, our meetings, our collaboration. Finding our self-confidence and then caring for each other, so that together we can bring about change at a larger scale, through dialogue and learning.

The past year offered us a perfect storm to realize that our world needed some serious reset. Our planet is suffering (think climate change, biodiversity loss) and we are also suffering from a toxic set up that keeps advocating for ‘more, more, more’ (materialistic value).

We have to fix that and prioritise our relations and our environment. We can – and should – be part of the solution. And that solution starts with finding our voice, and improving our interactions to better share, align and transcend our ideas and visions for a good, at least better, world.

What are Liberating Structures?

Liberating structures are all about unleashing everyone’s voice and intelligence, ensuring dialogue and learning happens at every step of the way, together.

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, better relations and healthy human systems.

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 one of our three Deep dive sessions in March, April or May.

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 May 10, 2021, we will refund your ticket less an admin fee of €50,-. After May 10 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?
