Have you experienced nightmare meetings? The one where you’re guiding a group and only the one brave soul participates? Or the brain ”storm” that barely creates a puddle?
Have you experienced nightmare meetings? The one where you’re guiding a group and only the one brave soul participates? Or the brain ”storm” that barely creates a puddle? What about the leisurely stroll through an agenda without a clear actionable decision in sight?
Well, don’t go to sleep scared. Come experience a new set of tools to make your facilitated meetings more fun and more effective (dare we say “dreamy”?).
This workshop will orient you to Liberating Structures, a repertoire of 33 different facilitation methods developed using natural learning methods and complexity theory. These techniques quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone.
By employing Liberating Structures methods virtually or in-person, gatherings become seriously playful and deeply engaging, leading to meaningful results. You’ll walk away with a new perspective on meetings and a few simple tools to wake up your own meetings.
This workshop is free and open to all, however your support helps us continue to offer great programming for the field and build effective, ethical, equitable philanthropy. If you would like to donate, please do so here.
