"I can't say enough good things about how she shifted our thinking and our relationships."“If you’re looking for a team development facilitator, look no further than Melissa Dinwiddie. The LEGO had a way of getting our more shy members to open up. We’ve already used Melissa to help another internal group kick off its work and I’ve recommended Melissa to my husband for his organization. I can’t say enough good things about how she shifted our thinking and our relationships.”
Ellen Bob, Executive Director, Congregation Etz Chayim

“Everyone was highly engaged during the LEGO® Serious Play® team building session, which went swimmingly. I had multiple veteran Board members remark that the pacing of this Retreat went really well. You deserve all due credit for your guidance on setting the agenda. Thank you again for your help making the retreat such a success! I will recommend your services without hesitation!”

– Evan Goer, Board President

“I’ve researched LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® for a year and have been really interested in it. It turned out to be so much more than I’d imagined. I’ve sat in so many board meetings, team gatherings, orientations that were unproductive. The LSP process changes everything; everyone is included, the quiet come forward, everyone’s ideas matter. Melissa, you are a peaceful and energetic leader at the same time, and it was a gift to just be in your presence.”

-Clarice Moore, Resident Service Coordinator, Raven Landing Senior Community, Fairbanks, AK

"I wholeheartedly recommend LEGO® Serious Play® with Creative Sandbox Solutions™."“I wholeheartedly recommend LEGO® Serious Play® with Creative Sandbox Solutions™. Through fun and interactive exercises, we were able to create LEGO-based symbols of our values and our relationships. Looking at what I put together, I couldn’t help but feel greater clarity about myself and the important people in my life.”

Dr. Raghuvir Sengupta, Biochemist at HP Labs

"Building my story with LEGO allowed me to explore my roles in new ways. I left the workshop with a better understanding of myself as a member of a team, my teammates, and my professional goals within my organization."“Thank you again for a fantastic day! Building my story with LEGO allowed me to explore my roles in new ways. I left the workshop with a better understanding of myself as a member of a team, my teammates, and my professional goals within my organization. It’s now four months later, and I still look back at the photos I took of what I built for inspiration.”
