Liberating Structures Workshop

September 6, 2019 @ 8:30 am 1:00 pm


Immersion Workshops are designed to introduce participants to a large number of Liberating Structures very rapidly – it’s a fast cycle “see one, do one, teach one, do another one” method of learning. The idea is to create awareness of the range of possibilities that Liberating Structures open up. Also, covering a wide variety of structures underscores the idea that there is no single way to address many complex challenges.

Our Liberating Structures half day workshop could be considered a good step to get in touch with these ease-learn microstructures that enhance relational coordination, trust and collaboration.

About Liberating Structures 

Invented by Henri Lipmanowicz and Keith McCandlessLiberating Structures are easy-to-learn 33 microstructures that enhance relational coordination, trust and collaboration. They quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. Liberating Structures are a disruptive innovation that can replace more controlling or constraining approaches. 

What’s special about the Liberating Structures approach?

Unique synergies arise from combining the following elements:

  • A large collection of simple and practical self-organizing microstructures.
  • Inclusion of all organizational levels (top to frontline with an option to include clients/customers).
  • Personal experience of jointly shaping wise responses to current challenges.

Together, these elements make it possible for an organization to start rapid cycles of experimentation, launching a transformation that includes everyone.

A Design Team to make it happen 

Half-day Immersion Workshops are facilitated by a mix of experienced and beginning facilitators, in this case 2 people. Design Teams consist of a mix of LS-pioneers which will include Jesus Mendez, Omar Bermudez as invited co-facilitator, both mentored by Claire Gerin-Lajoie.

About the Workshop 

LS Workshops are designed to learn by doing. They are facilitated by a Design Team of 2 people in this case. It is purposefully intense, fun and inspiring, to help you discover how they enable groups to work at the top of their intelligence. In this case, our design team will work hard to make it possible for a 30 people group to experience and internalize 4 to 6 Liberating Structures very quickly.

Our Theme & challenge 

We want to use the theme “Organizational Change” as our common challenge and use specific Liberating Structures to include and unleash everyone in the room.

Tickets & Venue

All tickets include a delicious coffee break and free drinks. Please note that we haven’t finalized the venue, but we’re aiming for a location in Downtown Montreal.
