Working with Open Space Technology // Oct 2019 // Washington, USA

Open Space Technology is a powerful tool to work with complexity, diversity, urgency or conflict. I highly recommend this training as an approach for leadership development, too!

Developed by Harrison Owen, Open Space Technology taps into the spirit of an organization like no
other large or small group intervention can. It is used around the world to enable organizations to learn and achieve beyond their expectations with a simple and even playful approach. Based on clear principles and values, Open Space Technology creates an environment for innovation, problem solving, creativity, teamwork and rapid change.
You can learn to “open the space” to engage the full energy of your workforce, to inspire growth and exceptional performance, and to flow with the chaos that will inevitably strike when rapid change is required again.

This highly participative training is for you, if you want to:

  • Learn about Open Space Technology (OST)
  • Experience and practice OST during the training
  • Learn to design OST meetings, that serve identified needs
  • Develop your understanding of the essence of OST to guide you in your facilitation practice
  • Get introduced to powerful Genuine Contact tools that support you and your clients in preparation
  • Learn how to clarify givens or non-negotiables in order to create the best conditions for the OST
  • Use Genuine Contact tools to debrief and follow up after the OST to ensure sustainable results
  • Explore how to use OST as a catalyst to transform organizational culture
