LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Methods
What do companies like Procter and Gamble know that you don’t know?
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® gets results. Here are a few reasons why this methodology works so well.
Multiple Modes of Communication
Unlike a typical meeting, which engages only the linguistic processing parts of the brain, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®:
- activates visual, auditory, and kinesthetic modes of expression
- engages emotions, which taps into the memory center
- helps participants access more of their brainpower
Don’t you want your team members to access more of their brain?
Deeper Insights and Understanding
Participants in a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop “think with their hands,” which:
- enhances memory and expression
- unlocks insights
- allows for a deep understanding of each other’s interpretation of key ideas
Even if your team doesn’t always see eye to eye, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® can help you understand each other better.
Can you imagine how much more productive this kind of deeper understanding would make your team?
A Level Playing Field
At a Creative Sandbox Solutions™ LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop with a trained and certified facilitator, everyone builds, and everyone shares.
The 3D LEGO® models allow us to:
- externalize our thoughts
- depersonalize the conversation
- unlock the wisdom of everyone in the room, not just the dominant personalities
Isn’t it time you tapped the untapped genius of everyone on your team, not just the “usual suspects”?
Of course we had to mention this. But having a ridiculously good time is not just about fun and games.
When your team is fully engaged and in flow at a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop with Creative Sandbox Solutions™, they’ll be working as hard, if not harder, than at a typical meeting — it just won’t feel like it.
Because with us, play isn’t the opposite of work, it’s how we make work more effective.
You’ll be amazed at how much we accomplish, and how much your team remembers from our time together.
That’s the power of play at work.
Wouldn’t you love to put that power at work for your organization?
Why Hire a Pro?
Running a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop is not just a matter of tossing some LEGO® bricks on a table. LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a powerful tool, grounded in science and decades of research.
But even the best tool is useless in the hands of someone who hasn’t been trained how to use it.
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is open source, which means anyone could do a
bit ton of reading, buy the materials, and claim to run a workshop using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methods…
…but with enough Googling you could also DIY your kitchen remodel…
…or your nephew’s appendectomy…
…or cut your own hair…
Chances are, though, that you won’t be nearly as satisfied with the results as if you hired a pro.
Wouldn’t you rather feel confident that your facilitator will deliver results?
