Shape your thoughts with Lego Serious Play

Flipcharts are so last century. Sometimes it is just easier to use your hands to shape and explore your thinking. Lego Serious Play gets you to use their blocks to create a shared understanding across a group on different aspects of organisational life, such as leadership or strategy.

Senior Learning & Development Consultant Eliza Hochman says: “This method taps into your creativity and playfulness, allowing you to engage in deeper dialogue and build a shared understanding on important issues. This innovative learning technique really integrates playfulness into the core of our teaching. In line with this approach we have also developed the Learning Journey Game which helps to reflect on a learning experience and translate insights into action, and the Customized Co-Creation Canvas which is used to design unique learning programmes in collaboration with our clients.”
 
Lego Serious Play can be used for any kind of topic, whether to express your experience with leadership or create a shared understanding of the company strategy. Professor Stijn Viaene used Lego blocks to help students build a vision for their Big Data culture: “The final module of our Executive Master Class in Creating Business Value with Big Data  is all about creating a culture of winning with big data and analytics. But culture is a difficult animal to tame or even grab hold of. That’s why I decided to use Lego Serious Play. It helps you think with your hands and listen with your eyes. Great fun too. Most importantly, though, is that it is a great way to make cultural change tangible and accessible in a coaching context.”
