This is a Facilitated Online Workshop, so come prepared to participate!
Future~Present is a Liberating Structure that makes it possible to:
- Notice threads in the present that if tugged on might unravel a more attractive future
- Identify how the hints of a more ideal future are present, just not widely distributed yet
- Notice small changes, support structures, and local success patterns that have the potential to be scaled up to a global transformation
Future~Present does not produce a plan to be implemented but rather builds momentum, imagination, social proof, and confidence in subtle or incremental signals. This builds capacity to actively shape next steps and pounce on opportunities. We will use "the future of work" as our lens.
What are Liberating Structures?
Liberating Structures quickly foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. LS are novel, practical and no-nonsense methods to help get everyone fully engaged and increase productivity and innovation. Whereas one structure can produce surprising results, strings as a combination of single structures can be really powerful and shift the pattern of working together. This is what we'll experiment with in this online session.
We will use the following Liberating Structures as a string:
