Yes and Philly Gatherings To Come

Goodmorning Yes and Philly’ers!
Happy September! We’re excited to share with you our schedule for regular gatherings through September 2018. You’ll notice we’re meeting every other month with an exception or two. Wahoo!
Yes and Philly is a network of people who gather to exchange learning, gain insight, experiment and solve YOUR current real life challenges using complexity based practices such as Liberating Structures, visual thinking, and community storytelling.
All gatherings will be at the Chestnut Hill Friends Meetinghouse
from 6.30 – 8.30 pm

We will send out reminders the week before an event. We invite you to bring snacks (for our snack break) and friends or colleagues.
Again, to share HOW we plan to operate:
o  Our typical gathering agenda will always involve bringing your real world challenges to the room and using Liberating Structures and visual thinking exercises to explore those challenges together.
o  We invite folks interested in learning to lead Liberating Structures to step up and do so at any gathering. Let us know ahead of time if possible. Also, Let us know the type of support you would like and if you’re looking for feedback.

o  We will collect and post on our website your ‘real life insights’ as stories and testimonials of what worked well + what you learned using these techniques and being part of this group.
o  Our website will evolve to be a landing page website (not meant to be updated) with stories rather than an outdated and underutilized blog. (What a beautiful fail the blog is!)
o  We will offer to ‘bring the work to the people’ by visiting businesses or community groups who are interested in Liberating Structures, visual thinking and Yes and Philly!
