Liberating Structures
Immersion Workshop

A virtual immersion to boost your facilitation practice

Four 3-hour Live Sessions over 4 weeks

Powerful facilitation strategies to promote active and effective participation in groups of any size

With Liberating Structures it is possible to awaken a participative and agile behaviour in meetings, planning sessions, classrooms or workshops. Liberating Structures productively disrupt conventional patterns in how we work together. They change dramatically the way results are generated without expensive investments, complicated training, or dramatic shifts in organizational structures.

But what is a Liberating Structures Immersion?

Maybe the best way to describe a  Immersion is visualizing yourself learning a  new language, living for a period of time in a new country. It would be an immersive experience, which means intense, deep and sometimes, discombobulating...😜

Both in face-to-face and virtual format, in an Immersion we experience the Liberating Structures at all times, structuring the interactions with the group.

» We experience the Liberating  Structures. This is when you learn the most...🤩

» We look behind the scenes. And then confirm how simple and powerful they are...🤔

» And sometimes we reflect on results and discuss how to apply in different contexts. What can be an endless and delightful conversation...😀

🤔 Virtual Immersion?

We started leading virtual immersions during the pandemic, transforming our 2-day in-person workshop into 4 dynamic and interactive sessions, each lasting 3 hours, via Zoom.

This format allows a deep dive into the world of Liberating Structures in a consistent learning experience. The virtual interaction becomes also a stepping stone to enhancing your in-person facilitation skills.

Throughout these 4 weeks, you will experience a multitude of Liberating Structures, unlocking their potential for various scenarios and contexts. Together, we'll unravel the endless combinations and applications of LS, equipping you with versatile tools to boost your practice.

This is a virtual learning journey with Liberating Structures.
