A virtual immersion to boost your facilitation practice.
Four live 3-hour sessions on April 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th from 9:00am to 12:00pm PDT
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.
Yes! This will be our 27th Immersion and the 13th 100% online.
There will be 4 highly practical and interactive meetings, of 3 hours each via Zoom. We will use light tech and support you along the way, always adding how LS unfold in face-to-face. It is actually a huge bonus to experience LS online, where you can quickly learn, and easily apply in person.
Over these 4 weeks you will experience many Liberating Structures and also will explore the infinite possibilities for stringing LS for different purposes and 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...😜
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...😀
And last but not least, every Immersion Workshop is different, because a good part of it is designed and driven by participants.
