Liberating Structures Design-Corner
03.05.2021  14:00  — 15:00

Are you planning a meeting or workshop using Liberating Structures? Do you need support in designing your meeting or workshop?

Together with Birgit Nieschalk we brought the “Design-Corner” to life to cover exactly these topics. We want to help, inspire and learn from each other designing meetings and workshops.

Requirements:

1. You are familiar with Liberating Structures

It’s fine if you only know a few structures but you should have already utilized a couple of them. This isn’t a workshop but an exchange among practitioners.

2. You want to help others with their design OR you are looking for inspiration for your design

It doesn’t matter if you only have loose thoughts, a purpose statement or an already refined storyboard for your meeting: bring along your draft, open points, feedback, a final touch or a completely new perspective.

We are looking forward to an exchange with you and all the other participants!

SEACON digital 2021
21.04.2021  9:00  — 22.04.2021 16:00

SEACON 2021 – the conference for software engineering + architecture will again take place online this year and of course Holisticon will be a part of it.

As advisory board member we are looking forward to two exciting days with you. We expect numerous inspiring sessions from renowned speakers.

Be there on 22nd of April when Holistikönner Marvin presents his session on:

10:15 – 10:55 – Why do we build single-page applications and what’s next?

Angular, React or maybe Vue.js? The first question in many projects isn’t if a single-page application (SPA) is the right architectural approach anymore. It is all about which framework should be used for implementation. Blindly deciding to use a SPA leads to a whole lot of compromises that are being made which often do not benefit the project or the end user. How did we get to this point at which we don’t even consider other options anymore?  To answer this question we will take a look at the evolutionary steps from a traditional server-side rendering (SSR) to a pure client-side rendering (CSR) of a single-page application. We will explore the advantages and disadvantages of other approaches which were left behind on this journey. And we will take a look into the future when the borders between SSR and CSR will increasingly be blurred.

We look forward to seeing you online at SEACON digital 2021!

Real collaboration with Liberating Structures
23.03.2021  17:00  — 18:30

Explore the world of Liberating Structures. After a short digression why standard communication methods often fail, we will show you how meetings can start to feel good again for you. This happens through active participation and not only through understanding the theory.

This event is right for you, if:
  • standard meetings really annoy you
  • you have the feeling that it can be done better
  • your colleagues are never really interested or participate
  • you want to solve the conflicts in your team
  • you want to learn more about Liberating Structures
  • you are already using Liberating Structures but you want to deepen your knowledge
This is what you get:
  • an interactive exchange with like-minded people about their problems and possible solutions
  • an overview on why communication often fails
  • an insight into how and why Liberating Structures work so effectively
  • an exciting outlook on what else is possible with Liberating Structures
Liberating Structures program

We would like to introduce to you our Liberating Structures building block program which will step-by-step help you to understand the Liberating Structures way of thinking. You will be able to juggle the whole range of methods and tools to successfully solve specific problems. Every single building block covers a certain point of view of the Liberating Structures repertoire:

  • the basics: healing inefficient meetings, ensure participation, offer and receive help
  • the juggling: customised answers to various typical tasks
  • the relationship level: strengthen relationships, navigate conflicts securely and carefully
  • hug complexity: successful approaches to complex challenges
  • start initiatives: new teams, projects, ventures: how do I guarantee their success?
  • the design masterclass: from an one-hour-meeting to a workshop over several days, invitations and strings
  • about power and structure: challenges, pitfalls and possibilities as facilitator
  • revolutionize decision-making: breaking through restrictions of traditional decision-making
  • BONUS: regular help with design questions within the group or during 1-2-1 consulting sessions with a professional

Let’s talk about: NEW WORK
23.02.2021  18:30  — 20:00

New Work“, “Work 4.0 or Servant Leadership” – the way we work with colleagues, partners and clients is changing rapidly. The current pandemic situation is a good example of how important it is to find new ways of working together.

What happens when people from the ‘old world’ start at a new company that has been living and breathing the new ways of working from the beginning? The speakers Kathrin and Wiebke have experienced exactly that and want to share their journey with you. Furthermore, they will highlight how these experiences can be adapted and used by companies during this change process to support employees on this journey in the best possible way. 

(Note: This event will be held in German!)

Event host
