LEGO®? Are You Serious?
Yes, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is serious work.
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a powerful methodology for visualizing complex tasks and developing solutions for sticky problems. It’s a scientifically grounded method that was developed by the LEGO Group in Denmark back in the late 90s.
From big companies like Proctor and Gamble, to nonprofits like the United Way, to institutions like the United Nations, smart organizations all over the world have all used LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® as a creative and innovative method for strategy, product, brand, or team development.
And it’s fun!
Here’s a slideshow from Strategic Play® (the German arm of the company where we received our training in LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methods and materials) that tells more about it.

And What About Improv?
The skills that an improv performer uses onstage are the same skills that your employees need at work. Regardless of the workplace, your team must be able to deal with uncertainty, communicate with each other, and work together to create something successful to satisfy a customer or end user.
In the world of theatrical improvisation, we work with a set of established practices (which anyone can learn!) to help us lean into uncertainty, listen to each other better, and deal with the state of constant flux that comes from making up a show on the spot.
Guess what? Everyday life is making stuff up on the spot, too! (You don’t carry a script when you walk into work, do you?)
Learning improv skills will strengthen your team’s “work skills muscles” like nothing else. Plus, it’s fun!
