UCLPartners Improvement Workshop: Liberating Structures

Join us for a half-day introductory immersion workshop on Liberating Structures and learn an alternative approach to running meetings

2 Dec 2019



When you feel included and engaged, do you do a better job? Do you think teams in which people work well together produce much better results? Have you noticed the best ideas often come from unexpected sources? Do you want to work at the top of your intelligence and give the same opportunity to others?

In this practical half-day workshop, you’ll be introduced to Liberating Structures and gain hands-on experience through participation, which will give you the grounding you need to run your own sessions in your workplace.

What are Liberating Structures?

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.

This alternative approach is both practical and feasible because Liberating Structures are quite simple and easy to learn. They can be used by everyone at every level, from the executive suite to the grassroots. No lengthy training courses or special talents are required. Mastery is simply a matter of practice. Liberating Structures routinely unleash a vast reserve of contributions and latent innovations waiting to be discovered.

What will I learn?

We will run seven different microstructures over the morning, which will help you:

– To develop enough familiarity with new methods that you can start applying them right away in routine AND imaginative ways to address complex challenges
– To draw attention to the role of different micro-design elements in shaping our interactions and encourage more mindful and inventive use of them

Who is this workshop aimed at?

Every person interested in leading change can use Liberating Structures to generate innovation and great results.

The workshop is designed for members of the Q Community and for anyone working in health and care organisations such as clinicians, allied health professionals, nurses, managers or administrators, within the UCLPartners region.

If your organisation is not part of UCLPartners’ region, please get in touch.

Lunch will be provided at the end of the workshop.
