Because play isn’t the opposite of work. When it’s used strategically, play is how we make work more effective.

“Thank you for an AWESOME staff retreat. All of us had a terrific experience. I especially appreciated all the prep work you did to learn about members of our team, which helped us feel comfortable to be more vulnerable. Your were both patient and steadfast about keeping us on schedule, and your intelligence and warmth coaxed us to dig deep and tap into our creativity to discover and express ourselves in a meaningful way. I would absolutely recommend Creative Sandbox Solutions for any team that could benefit from better communication, increased respect for one another, and renewed determination to work together towards a common goal.”
-Cindy Rogoway, Executive Director, Hebrew Free Loan

“Thank you so much for your professional assistance at the Etz Chayim Annual Board Retreat. 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’ve done a lot of teambuilding activities at annual Board retreats, and while they’ve often been fun, what stood out about the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® you did with us is that not only did everyone have a lot of fun, but we actually learned about each other at the same time. That’s never happened before. Also, the LEGO had a way of getting our more reticent members to come out of their shells. The models helped people express things I’m quite sure they wouldn’t have said otherwise. I couldn’t believe how much people opened up, all while having fun. I’ve already recommended you to my husband for his organization, and will continue to sing your praises.”
-Ellen Bob, Executive Director, Congregation Etz Chayim

“How do you get to the core of who you are and the relationships you have? These things are hard to define in words and, for that reason, 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

“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.”

– Annelies Ransome
