274 views

Published on

Making waves around the world, Liberating Structures (LS) productively and playfully disrupt conventional patterns in how we work together. Liberate yourself from deadly boring meetings, someone else’s “best practices,” wondering why people don’t speak up, strategic planning that is anything BUT strategic and group process that feels like drudgery.

Inspired by complexity science and developed by Henri Lipmanowicz and Keith McCandless, LS is a repertoire of 33+ simple methods that introduce tiny shifts in the way we meet, plan, decide and relate to one another.

Come engage, reengage or dive deeper into these easy-to-learn microstructures that quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone.
