One day workshop

“You can learn more about a person in an hour of play than you can from a lifetime of conversation” Plato
The effectiveness of your communication can have many different effects in your life. Some of these are managing your level of stress, improving your relationship with others and the ability to solve problems with others. Becoming a good communicator goes beyond just conversing with others. There are verbal and non-verbal cues that you have to be mindful of in order to emotionally connect with others. Too many times in teams and organizations, communication breakdown occurs owing to clashes of ego, biases of opinion and lack of mindfulness. The good news is that you can enhance communication and collaboration by engaging in tactile skills that stimulates interest in others. It is not just about hearing or listening, it is also what you see and do in communication that counts as well. The key to dynamic communication is giving attention to what others say and what you are saying to others. A candid way to achieve this is to enhance your communication and collaboration skills using Lego® Seriousplay™ [LSP]. Engaging in LSP gives you the opportunity to help keep your attention focus when you are communicating. With LSP you can essentially assist in levelling up relationships within teams and organizations as it allows you to:

  • Discover new things about yourself and that of your team
  • Build empathy among team members to rapidly build consensus
  • Gain a better understanding of the bigger picture

The methodology involves the use of specially designed LEGO® bricks and figurines to facilitate conversation and creativity. Here are the steps involved in this methodology:
Setting the Stage: The first step is to define the problem or challenge that the team will be working on. This step involves setting the context and creating a safe space for team members to share their thoughts and ideas.
Building Individual Models: The second step is to have each team member build their own LEGO® model that represents their perspective on the problem or challenge. This step allows team members to express their individual thoughts and ideas in a visual and tactile way.
Sharing and Reflection: The third step is for each team member to share their model with the rest of the team. This step allows team members to listen to each other’s perspectives and gain a deeper understanding of the problem or challenge.
Building Collective Models: The fourth step is to have the team work together to build a collective model that represents the team’s shared understanding of the problem or challenge. This step allows the team to collaborate and come up with a shared vision for how to address the problem or challenge.
Action Planning: The final step is to use the insights gained from the previous steps to develop an action plan for addressing the problem or challenge. This step involves identifying specific actions that the team can take to achieve their shared vision.
The LSP methodology is effective because it allows team members to express their thoughts and ideas in a non-threatening way. The use of LEGO® bricks and figurines also helps to stimulate creativity and imagination, which can lead to innovative solutions to complex problems. Additionally, the methodology promotes collaboration and active listening, which are essential skills for effective teamwork.
