Course Overview

What are Liberating Structures?

Liberating Structures (LS) are simple social technologies and tiny methods that disrupt conventional patterns in how we work together. Taken individually, each of the 33+ methods changes the way results are generated by a group. As a repertoire of complementary methods, they address many chronic challenges faced by groups.

When LS are introduced, many familiar approaches that people use all the time — presentations, open discussions, managed discussions, status reports, and brainstorms — become less attractive or fade away. LS make it possible to immediately and productively tap a group’s creative intelligence and generative potential. The precise and minimum way each LS is specified makes it possible for anyone to quickly start using them. LS remove the mystery behind effective participatory leadership, group facilitation, and hosting dynamic processes. Prepare to be surprised!

What you will learn

Make your online meetings interactive. Involve everybody in clear, focused discussion by using Liberating Structures.

Using Zoom, this two-hour online learning session will demonstrate how to use specific structures that you can take away and use.

Structures will include:

  • Mad Hatters Tea Party: A speedy online ice breaker, enabling people to meet and consider the issues ahead
  • 1-2-All: Getting everybody to speak and get involved, before reaching a decision.
  • Conversation Café: A chance for all to participate, and reflect on a key issue
  • Troika: A unique way to get independent advice on your current challenge

By the end you will feel confident in being able to use some basic structures to involve and empower your people.

Group Learning Events

If you have five or more learners, a private group event could be cheaper.

We can tailor the content to your team, and host the workshop inhouse at your workplace or here at Happy's HQ in Aldgate, Central London.

The Small Print

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time, to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.

Please ensure you read our Terms and Conditions before booking for our payment terms and cancellation policy.
