The online challenges facing the use of the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®

The success of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) may be because it is aligned with the environment in which our brains evolved to operate. No two-dimensional charts, books, reports or screens (and if you are a purist, not even a PowerPoint slide). It lets us get back to the basics of face-to-face story-making and listening with […]

Wellbeing and LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®; could the process be just as beneficial as the topic?

Over the last few years I have run workshops on wellbeing using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®. Feedback from participants has frequently suggested that as well as the discussions about wellbeing being useful, they actually find the process of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® beneficial to the their wellbeing as well.  This suggestion that there might be something inherently […]

The pros and cons of the tiny kit

As discussed in my previous blog, LEGO® Serious Play® workshops of half-a-day or more, conventionally use the 219-piece Starter Kit to get things started. But for short sessions (including online), these are just not practical because of their relative cost (roughly £25), their length of time for up-skilling participants for LEGO® Serious Play® (60 minutes […]

I have been running LEGO Serious Play (LSP) workshops on the topic of wellbeing for nearly two years, and knew that this was a workshop that worked and got great feedback from participants.

Using ZOOM for LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops

How many participants? So far I’ve only tried with participants who don’t know each other. And from my experience, participants who don’t know each other have some but limited interest in listening to other participant’s stories. So sessions are kept small. I have not tried more than six people. I would recommend an upper limit […]

What can LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® do for you?

In September 2017 I qualified as a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator, and since then loads of people have been interested to know what it’s all about, so I thought I would make it the topic of my first blog. Groups use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® to tackle complex problems because it allows them to express and […]
