Have you ever wished that your meetings would fully engage all the people at the table? That you could explore ideas deeper and broader than before, and produce better decisions, faster? In this hands-on demonstration, Steve Paro will introduce you to LEGO SERIOUS PLAY, a method that’s proven to do these things and more.
We will discuss the Why behind LEGO SERIOUS PLAY, and we will experience first-hand What it is and How it works. LEGO SERIOUS PLAY is a facilitated meeting, communication and problem-solving method, where participants are led through a series of questions, which go deeper and deeper. Each participant builds his or her own three-dimensional LEGO model in response to the facilitator’s questions using specially selected LEGO bricks. These 3D models serve as the basis for group discussion, knowledge sharing, problem solving and decision-making.
