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.

Virtual Immersion?

Yes! This will be our 19th Immersion and the 7th 100% online.

There will be 5 weekly meetings, of 3 hours each on October 20th and 27th, and November 3rd, 10th and 17th, always from 9:00am to 12:00pm PDT (Seattle/Vancouver) via Zoom.

Over these 5 weeks we will experience as much of the Liberating Structures as possible and explore the infinite possibilities for different contexts.

What is an Immersion?

Maybe the best way to describe an 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...๐Ÿ˜œ

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...๐Ÿคฉ

» We look behind the scenes. And then confirm how simple and powerful they are...๐Ÿค”

» And sometimes we reflect on results and discuss how to apply in different contexts. What can be an endless and delightful conversation...๐Ÿ˜€

And last but not least, every Immersion Workshop is different, because a good part of it is designed and driven by participants.

Facilitators

Carolina Almeida and Fernando Murray will be the Facilitators in this Immersion, with some special guests along the Sessions.

With deep gratitude for the authors - Keith McCandless and Henri Lipmanowicz - they have been incorporating Liberating Structures in their practice since 2015.

In 2016, both coordinated the translation of Liberating Structures into Portuguese, and started gathering the Community of Practitioners in Brazil, today with more than 1,000 people.

Carolina and Fernando live in Nelson, a small city in British Columbia, Canada. From Nelson, they work as Consultants and Facilitators with clients across the globe.
