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.

When is conflict helpful to a facilitator and when is it your greatest nightmare? Do you avoid conflict or embrace it? We’ll explore differences between generative and destructive conflict during facilitated meetings. And in the process, we’ll also take a fresh look at two classic structures.

Come join co-hosts Rachel Coff and Lynda Frost. Everyone is welcome, regardless of location or experience!

We will likely use the following structures:
