Including & Unleashing everyone with Liberating Structures
Liberating Structures are a set of easy to learn rules that make it easy to include and unleash everyone in shaping next steps. When used routinely they make it possible to build the kind of organization that everybody wants.
“They introduce tiny shifts in the way we meet, plan, decide and relate to one another. “
Unlike the traditional discussions or structures where the control of a discussion lies with one person, Liberating Structures make it possible to include everybody regardless of group size and distribute the control among all participants.
As a business Analyst I have to do a lot of workshops, interviews and sessions day in and day out with Stakeholders and users. And these techniques come in very handy. For a newbie who wants to learn them the techniques are beautifully clubbed in packs according to your needs of whether you want to plan, share, do a retro etc. Pick the one you need that suits your needs, read the very clear and concise instructions and you are all set to include and unleash everyone.
In this session I plan to introduce you the set of 30 plus Liberating structures and demonstrate 2 of them. The session is going to be fun filled with a lot of hands on, through which you can communicate and collaborate better immediately and the best part is you do not need any special skills.
Outline/Structure of the Workshop
The communication tools of Liberating Structures will teach you how to facilitate the discussions your organization needs. I am going to introduce the 30 + techniques and demonstrate how to use some of them. And all the attendees are going to be fully immersed and ready to wield their new knowledge the very next day at work.
Attendees will be introduced to Liberating Structures as a set of protocols for communication and collaboration. The purpose and intent of the protocols will be discussed and described. Attendees will actually participate in a variety of Liberating Structure exercises, enabling the techniques to be applied immediately. To summarize the session a set of online resources will be provided to the attendees so they can research further at their leisure.
