Perspectives on Liberating Structures:

As a Wall Street Journal columnist covering executive leadership, I discovered Lipmanowicz and McCandless in the early days of their work with Liberating Structures. Today, as an entrepreneur in a complex industry, I use those practices routinely. Any group, anywhere is inherently poised for rapid transformation. Liberating Structures make it simple to turn this potential into reality.

Thomas Petzinger Jr. – Founder of five life science companies and former Wall Street Journal "Front Lines" columnist


The authors have drawn on pioneers in complexity science research, making insights immediately useful for people in the field. 
Liberating Structures invite frontline ownership of challenges by engaging everyone in a way that encourages them to become part of the solution and take action.

Liberating Structures have given me not only many powerful new ways for engaging employees and customers; they have also succeeded beyond my imagination in providing endless new approaches to improve productivity and creativity, all in a fun and enjoyable way! 

Guy Eiferman – President, Healthcare Services & Solutions, Merck & Co

Billings Clinic has been using many Liberating Structures for a decade. The engagement and emergence of new and stronger teams that include staff, leaders, physicians and nurses has helped us to improve patient experience and safety while reducing costs in an extremely complex healthcare environment. Highly recommended.

Nicholas Wolter, MD – CEO, Billings Clinic

Bringing Liberating Structures into my work is restoring my soul. Thank you. 

Deb Witzel – Executive Director, Longmont Community Justice Partnership

Being able to manage interactions with Liberating Structures helps me be more self-confident and a better leader in the eyes of my team and my customers. Being an early adopter increased my influence in the organization and is one of the reasons I'm now a member of the senior management team. Liberating Structures helped me grow in my career. 

Vanessa Vertiz – Business Unit Director, Lima, Peru

For the past eight years in Latin America and Italy Liberating Structures has helped me and my teams work through a wide range of issues. They became a way of doing business and to move organizations and people to new heights.

David Raimondo  General Manager Latin America, Coopervision

There are those rare but delicious moments when you stumble across a resource that transforms everything. Liberating Structures have provided a delightfully rich repertoire of methods that live up to their bold name—liberating participants to engage, collaborate and reach into their collective wisdom to address their concerns and goals.  And not just for my practice, but increasingly as fruitful tools for managers and staff across the Yukon Government organization.
