What we're about

A central Texas (Austin-based) learning community for anyone interested in learning to use Liberating Structures, powerful and participatory tools that promote new ways of working together. Join if you're interested in including and unleashing everyone at your organization or in your community in answering complex (wicked!) questions, promoting broadscale change, and building a future together. If you're looking for tools that help you share ownership and engage people more deeply in your everyday work together or promoting broadscale transformation, Liberating Structures can help.

From www.liberatingstructures.com: Every person interested in leading change—in schools, hospitals, foundations, agencies, and businesses—can use Liberating Structures to generate innovation and great results. Liberating Structures are easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance relational coordination and trust. They quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. Liberating Structures are a disruptive innovation that can replace more controlling or constraining approaches.
