“Work Better Together: Introduction to Liberating Structures”
In this hands-on, interactive program, Mike Fisher, Business and Technology Agility Transformation Coach, Trainer, and Consultant, and Host of Indianapolis Liberating Structures MeetUp, will engage attendees in an introduction to learning Liberating Structures – used to disrupt conventional patterns in how we work together.
When you feel included and engaged, do you do a better job? Do you think teams in which people work well together produce much better results? Have you noticed the best ideas often come from unexpected sources? Do you want to work at the top of your intelligence and give the same opportunity to others? If YES, this is the kind of organization and community that people want to be part of. Liberating Structures help make this happen.
Conventional facilitation and collaborating structures are either too inhibiting (presentations, status reports and managed discussions) or too loose and disorganized (open discussions and brainstorms) to creatively engage people in shaping their own future. They frequently generate feelings of frustration and/or exclusion and fail to provide space for good ideas to emerge and germinate. This means that huge amounts of time and money are spent working the wrong way. More time and money are then spent trying to fix the unintended consequences.
Liberating Structures offers an alternative approach and design to how people work together with a menu of 30+ microstructures to replace or complement conventional facilitation and collaboration practices. These structures make it possible to build the kind of organization that everybody wants. They are designed to include everyone in shaping next steps.
