Liberating Structures

Driver 3 Staff Engagement

Are you curious about new ways to inspire and encourage creativity or innovation in your teams?  If so you’ll be interested in liberating structures.  These are simple facilitation techniques designed to energise and inspire!

Liberating structures will especially appeal to those interested in quality improvement, disruptive innovation, behaviour change, collaboration, staff engagement, diffusion of innovation or positive deviance. 

Sessions are interactive and a positive opportunity to network and meet with and learn from others with similar interests.

Comments from staff using Liberating Structures

“We adapted TRIZ approach for tackling some issues and to improve quality of few services. The topics discussed were respite services, modified diets, laundry and communication.  It was huge success.  The staff participated in this with enthusiasm. It was fun and a new way of learning. Most importantly every one participated.  And we were able to find areas that we could improve on"   Acting ADON.
