Teambuilding isn’t often associated with playing with toys. Most of the time, teambuilding exercises involve lengthy lectures, complicated activities, and awkward conversations. It’s difficult to cultivate sincere, beneficial discussions between coworkers, but it’s an important part of fostering a good group culture.
To break down some of those uncomfortable barriers, LEGO® unveiled its SERIOUS PLAY® methodology, a teambuilding exercise that uses a mountain of LEGO bricks to create meaningful dialogue between coworkers. Everyone learns and communicates in different ways, which can be an asset on a team. Constructing models allows everyone — from the most outgoing to the shiest — a chance to engage with one another. Lego Serious Play is not a game - it is a hands-on, experiential process designed to encourage your team's creative thinking, collaboration, and communication using Legos to build models. Lego Serious Play is a playful approach that can inspire serious results.
