Open Space Learning Workshops Coming Up in June & December

Lisa Heft,Vice President of the Open Space Institute USA is organizing two Open Space Learning Workshops from June 20-22 and December 19-21 in San Francisco, for people of all experience levels. In Open Space, participants co-create their own agenda around a central theme of strategic importance; and they facilitate their own discussions — the facilitator’s role is quite different than for other methods. Experience an Open Space and learn how to convene your own Open Space event, including pre-work, design, logistics, ‘what-ifs’ and ‘when-not-to’s’. In this workshop participants will share their earning and thoughts about systems and chaos theory, grief and transformation cycles, and how organizations and individuals embrace, or resist, change. Participants will also experience an Open Space and learn (and share from their own experiences) how to design the event, prepare hosts or clients, coordinate and facilitate the meeting and help organizations or communities support the actions and momentum that come out of the meeting. Each participant will receive a copy of “the Open Space Idea Book” for continued learning. For more information and a registration form contact workshop facilitator Lisa Heft at lisaheft@openingspace.net.
