LEGO SERIOUS PLAY™ (LSP) -
a training technique using methods and material of Lego.
The basis is the fact that, by doing something actively, the human brain activates much larger areas, than it would for passive processes (like listening to something).
By touching the bricks with their hands, your participants "feel the problem" - every
little piece they use gets linked to a metaphor.
We don't assume anything - everything is possible and everything can be built.
After a warm-up, participants start their creative process: Trying, modelling, simulating - it's a short step from the duty to the game.
While playing, hierarchies get lost - because every model, every person on the table has equal say. Quieter personalities or employees with extraordinary ideas get heard - because these ideas suddenly become public through that construction of bricks.
This way, the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY™ technique opens a new way for everyone to express themselves. And to be listened to.
Hence, this method is also ideal for groups with language barriers or big hierarchic differences. LEGO SERIOUS PLAY™ is made to improve critical relationships, to mediate where egotistic behaviour weakens a team or to reveal hidden conflicts.
Who can attend? Everyone, you're totally free: From members of the board to the purchasing department, from management to client. LSP is entirely flexible.
Team spirit and willingness to co-operate all of a sudden get a new and colourful face. Every person on the table, in the workshop has actively participated on the solution of that question or problem: Is there a better way towards a general acceptance of this solution?
Your workshop results are easily transferable into existing structures - e.g. by keeping record of the ideas and outcomes on paper or by creation of to-do lists. That's how you use the creative power immediately.
Things done with joy are usually more successful. Through the playful element within LSP we achieve an ideal combination of "be child again" and "solve serious problems". Beyond all: It's great fun!
