Hi wonderful Open Space community,

I'd like your input. I am working with a division within my company. The
division is sponsoring a half-day Open Space event every 2 months to help
improve adaptability and innovation. The division consists of 200 people,
and all team members are invited to every event. My company is very
hierarchical, and some team members are afraid to call topics. They are
afraid that leadership may retaliate against them.

Upper leadership is very open, but some of the middle managers--e.g.,
VP-level--are pretty controlling.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what to do in this type of situation?

If you have questions or feedback, let me know.

Thank you so much!

All the best,

When the mind is quiet, the sun of your heart will shine once again, and
you will be free of problems.
