Traditional brainstorming is a start, but it's insufficient.

Seeking diverse insights is a step in the right direction — aiming to incorporate as many varied perspectives as possible in addressing a challenge is indeed commendable. Engaging with a lot of ideas from a diverse group can be exhilarating! But, is it enough?

As time passes, particularly in a virtual environment, sessions intended to be participatory can deteriorate into monologues dominated by a few, leaving others disconnected and unsure of how to contribute. If you're the one leading the meeting, you may find it challenging to create a collaborative and interactive atmosphere. The pressure of steering the group towards outcomes can be burdensome.

There is a better way.

Liberating Structures pave the way for vibrant participation in groups of all sizes, enabling the incorporation and empowerment of everyone. These innovative methods can replace the older, restrictive approaches, creating a more free-flowing and inclusive environment. Furthermore, most Liberating Structures are simple to learn and adaptable to both small groups and larger gatherings exceeding 300 individuals, be it online or offline.

Hear it from those who've experienced it!

"I really enjoyed the 'learn and practice together' format of the LS Studio, and got a lot of value from working with people from different countries and different professional backgrounds. It's been a great experience, I'd recommend it for anyone, experienced with LS or just getting started."
"I had already had a course on LS, but this course enabled a much deeper connection amongst the participants. A lot of deep insights and reflections emerged in the discussions and helped me make meaning of my own practice much better. I am leaving the course with a much wider perspective of the work with LS and of the work that I already do as a facilitator."
"The LS Studio was a powerful, fun learning opportunity for me. I gained specific knowledge and skills that have deepened my facilitation "toolkit", and I'm eager to learn more. I will definitely integrate LS in many aspects of my life/work (already am!)"
