A few months ago Larry Peterson and I discovered and tested a great way to apply the Principles and Law of Open Space Technology to a “fishbowl” to create a dynamic, energized conversation with a whole room of almost 200 people in a short time frame.
Some of the participants said:
“I really enjoyed the openness of the fishbowl, next time I will be in there swimming.”
“We were pleasantly surprised with the number of participants willing to brave the fishbowl, and even more so with the conversation that followed. This was a format that engaged those within the fishbowl to offer the type of forthright commentary that may not have surfaced in another meeting format”.
Thanks to Larry we have put pen to paper and written about our experience, including the approach we have named the Open Space Fishbowl.
