Creating engaging virtual meetings using Liberating Structures

30 & 31 March; 1, 2 and 3 April 2020

All of a sudden, here in New Zealand and in most parts of the world, people are unexpectedly working from home. Many need to plan and run virtual meetings. In this one hour virtual session, you’ll learn how to make your virtual events engaging, productive, creative and fun.

You will experience what it can be like to work together online with interactive practices like Liberating Structures. You’ll try out some ways to talk and work that increase engagement, invite creative thinking and create connection, specifically in a virtual environment. There will be a lot of use of chat, breakout rooms, and Google Slides. It’s a short session, so we’ll keep it simple and fun!

Liberating Structures (LS) are simple methods that anybody can use to improve or change the way work gets done, now and in the future. Every single one of the 33 structures rests on the idea that everybody is included and invited to participate in shaping the group’s shared future. The structures are easy to learn, requiring no lengthy training. They are easy to use and don’t require bringing in an expert.

Creating your Immunity to Change map so you can change your behaviour

available on request

Is what’s happened to your world in the last week calling on you to change your behaviour, or for the people in the teams you lead to change their behaviour? Do you think this will be a challenge?

This approach is specifically designed to help individuals, work teams, and organisations make those personal and collective changes that are most important to them– but have proven resistant even to thoughtful plans and heartfelt intentions. Through an individual coaching session or group workshop participants create powerful individual and group Immunity to Change maps, and uncover the hidden immune system that prevents change.

Leading effective and engaging virtual meetings

24 & 26 March 2020

With all the disruption due to COVID-19 right now, many people are being asked to work from home. This is something my colleague Aenslee Tanner and I are very familiar with so we thought it’d be helpful to run this virtual event for anyone who needs to lead effective and engaging virtual meetings.

Join us for this dynamic, 90-minute session – delivered virtually via Zoom video conferencing – where you’ll learn:

  • the steps you can take before a virtual meeting even begins to help set it up for success
  • the secret to taking the pressure off you as the facilitator and engaging your audience in a way that both supports their growth and produces great results (hint: we’ll be tapping into the power of Liberating Structures)
  • tips for understanding and meeting the psychological needs of your virtual team during these increasingly complex and uncertain times.
