Tools for Harnessing Collective Creativity
Date: Wednesday August 12, 2020 | 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET
Speaker: Sylvia Cheuy
Whether the meeting you are hosting is virtual or face-to-face, being intentional about how you design and facilitate it can make all the difference. This is especially true when you are hosting people from a diversity of sectors and perspectives.
This webinar introduces participants to Liberating Structures: a menu of thirty-three simple, but highly effective, facilitation methods designed to encourage people to think, learn and work together in new ways. Whether used individually, or sequenced together, Liberating Structures demonstrate how high-impact change often happens through small shifts in how we think and interact.
Join Tamarack’s Sylvia Cheuy to learn more about Liberating Structures and the principles that make them work. Learn about – and experience – some of Sylvia’s personal favourites and expand your changemaker tool-kit with a rich array of road-tested approaches to unleash collective creativity.
