Open Space Technology (OST) is a meeting methodology that taps into the collective wisdom of the group, team or organization to address concrete business issues, find answers to complex problems, and nurture leadership in times of change. Using the potential of the whole group, whether 5 or 500+ people (online or in physical meetings) OST has the capacity to bring together (large) groups of people around topics that are deeply important to them and thus prone to misunderstanding. OST has proven long term effects in problem-solving among groups and improving how people work together. Working repeatedly with Open Space Technology has the capacity to transform organizations.
Developed in the mid-eighties by Harrison Owen, a leading organizational culture and transformation expert, this powerful and surprising meeting methodology is now used around the world as an effective process for facilitating change in both organizational and community settings.
This online training is designed to provide you with the skills, tools and attitudes for working successfully with OST, using the perspective of the Genuine Contact™ approach, focusing on creating a strong container for preparation and follow-up, in addition to the meeting itself.
This workshop is part of the Advanced Facilitation Skills series of the Genuine Contact™ Program.
