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.

July 2020 User Group (Virtual): Failure as Fun

Online event

Since the pandemic is “helping” us all revisit and reposition our facilitation practices, Nakia Winfield and Ann Blocker thought it would be fun to go back to basics and revisit one of the LS Core Principles: Amplify Freedom AND Responsibility. In this session, we’ll explore letting go of fear, leaning into experimentation, and seeing failure as fun. Put on your silly shoes and grab your sense of play—we’re going to have fun! Structures we’re exploring: 9 Whys and/or Appreciative Interview and/or Discovery and Action Dialog Mad Tea 15% Solution Zoom link will be sent to everyone who registers through Meetup at https://www.meetup.com/Central-TX-Liberating-Structures-User-Group/.
