WORKSHOP: LEGO® Serious Play®: Tapping into Creativity in L&D

LEGO® Serious Play® actively engages business teams to communicate, problem solve and create solutions to the most complex of business problems, all through the power of play.  

The method can be used in a wide range of situations from strategy and planning, to customer experience, communication improvement, teamwork, systems and process improvement, cultural transformation, customer journey mapping and much more. Teams discover an ability to see new ideas they never knew they had, create strategies that future-proof a business, reignite a work-as-one mentality and tap into a "creativity for business" that most adults don't realise they even have.
