“I appreciate all the work and effort you put into today’s session with my team. It was without doubt original and innovative and above all, it fulfilled my objectives. You can consider me to be a Lego Serious Play apostle and I will do all I can to recommend your methodology to both teams in my company and indeed to other companies, should the opportunity arise.”
This is specific feedback from the manager of a team of 15 people following an 8 hour Lego Serious Play workshop we did recently.
Sector: Financial / Banking
- Based on the overall company objectives, identify personal objectives for each team member
- Align the individual objectives so that they become common team objectives for 2012
- Identify all the obstacles to reaching the 2012 objectives
- Find solutions to the main obstacles
- Brainstorm how the team can improve its overall performance
- Unite and strengthen the team and develop closer relationships and ties between its members
- We built a workshop exclusively around Lego Serious Play – working with both individual and group models
- We also combined the model building with some more well known training concepts (SWOT analysis and Circles of Control and Influence) to map what they built
- We met all the objectives set out by the client
- We had full involvement from all participants throughout the whole day
- Although there were some difficult “crucial conversations”, participants enjoyed the experience
- By the end of the day, the team had a full understanding of how they performed and how they could improve
- An improvement in the sense of “team spirit” was noticeable by the end of the workshop, and even more so two weeks later at a follow up meeting.
The following phrase came up during the workshop and captures very well the overall result: “we are much more a team than I thought we were”
Lego Serious Play works!
