Participants of a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop positioning their individual models

What is the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method?

The purpose of LEGO SERIOUS PLAY is to change “lean backward meetings” to “lean forward meetings”, where the result is more participation, more insights surfaced, sincere agreements and, ultimately, more commitment and faster implementations.

The LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method is a facilitated thinking, communication and problem solving technique for use with organisations, teams and individuals. It is a science-based process that draws on extensive research from the fields of business, organisational development, psychology and learning.

LEGO SERIOUS PLAY relies on the concept of “hand knowledge”, meaning that our hands know more than we realize, and guided construction with LEGO® bricks gives us access to this knowledge.

What is the role of a facilitator?

LEGO SERIOUS PLAY is a facilitated process, and the results and sustainable impact of a workshop are directly tied to the quality of the facilitation. It requires a high quality of facilitation to deliver full value.

I have been trained by the Association of Master Trainers in the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method, created by Per Kristiansen and Robert Rasmussen, who have been driving the development of the method when working for the LEGO group. The Association regroups today more than 13.000 trained facilitators worldwide.

My role, as a facilitator, is first to design and create unique workshops based on the LEGO SERIOUS PLAY method in order to answer to the specific challenges of my clients. I'm not bringing the solution to the problem, I'm rather making it possible for the solution to arise from the workshop participants interactions. This approach empowers the participants by giving a sense of ownership on the solution, and a deeper and more sustainable commitment.
