Engage to Improve: Using Liberating Structures in Everyday Interactions

Date: November 13, 2019
Filed under: Improve Culture, Quality Café, Sharpen Your Skills, Teamwork & Communication, Webinar

We often save innovative facilitation techniques for special occasions – conferences, public dialogues and other collaborative events. However, we can also use these techniques to free our regular meetings and interactions from the behaviours and challenges that limit our excitement and innovation.

In this Quality Café, Anthony Gagné and Cathy Almost from the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council discussed opportunities to use Liberating Structures in your quality improvement work every day, as well as challenges you may encounter when doing so.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • describe the theory behind Liberating Structures and how they can free us to innovative and explore complex challenges;
  • explore how Liberating Structures can be used in regular work and interactions;
  • discuss how Liberating Structures can foster more participatory meeting; and
  • state key concerns and opportunities for using Liberating Structures to facilitate virtual meetings.
