About The Liberators

We take a radical approach to organizational change. Rather than taking the lead, we empower people within organizations to drive change themselves. We create space where people can tackle difficult challenges together while also having fun. Inspired by the fields of complexity science and organizational psychology, we use frameworks like Scrum, Lean Change Management and Liberating Structures to deliver fast-paced interactions, high involvement and creative destruction.

With our strong focus on radical transparency, an experiential approach and creating a shared purpose, we put organizations in a position to thrive on complexity rather than being defeated by it. Are you ready to leave your comfort zone and unleash your superpowers?

Most of our content is 100% free, like blogposts, podcasts, videos and meetups. We rely on support from our community to make this possible. If you like what we do, please consider supporting us.
