Why LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®?
There are numerous benefits for using LEGO SERIOUS PLAY in your organization. Here's some highlights.
Engage 65% more of your brain
LEGO SERIOUS PLAY requires you to build with both your hands - doing this uses up to 80% of your brain compared to only 15% of your brain when communicating orally.
Gain deeper insights
Using more brain cells means you gain deeper insights. Your subconscious actually gets pulled into the models you build.
In most meetings, 20% of the people do 80% of the talking. LEGO SERIOUS PLAY ensures all voices are heard, increasing productivity.
Using LEGO SERIOUS PLAY forces people to think differently. Thinking with your hands engages both your left & right hemispheres of your brain.
Create diverse thinking
LEGO SERIOUS PLAY allows you to hear and see everyone's point of view.
Engage all learning styles
Whether you're an auditory, visual or kinaesthetic learner, LEGO SERIOUS PLAY engages all styles.
LEGO SERIOUS PLAY leverages the power of metaphor and storytelling. Stories are 22x more memorable than facts. Imagine what your meetings could be like!
Engage introverts & extroverts
LEGO SERIOUS PLAY caters to both introverts and extroverts. Introverts have time to process their answers during builds and extroverts have the opportunity to process out loud.
It's highly immersive and fun!

Flow is when you're at your cognitive and creative best. It's when you're in the "zone."

It was extraordinary to see how LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® allowed people to communicate and share very deep and complicated things about themselves to strangers. It’s clearly an incredible tool for driving connection and communication among team members. And it was a total blast, too!
Leo was an awesome facilitator who put me at ease, was personable, organized and prepared. LEGO SERIOUS PLAY was a fun activity that helped get the "creative juices flowing."
Leo is excellent at his craft! He was so clear and concise, and made the entire time fly by with the fun and introspective work. We all wished that we could’ve had more time to explore and create.
LEGO SERIOUS PLAY helped me explore some thoughts and feelings about myself in ways I'd never had before.
I loved the way LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® encouraged me to just get to work instead of overthinking each answer. Being able to discover the answer through doing, instead of thinking, was so inspiring. What a fantastic way to get beyond a creative block!
Excellent team building and fun session. Brought out everyone out of their shell.
I enjoyed the insight, playfulness, creativity and connections made with myself and others. I felt like a kid again! Leo is an expert, knowledge, professional and friendly. He has a way of inviting you in. He sees the big picture and the details that help you experience more "ah ha!" moments.
The session with my team was OUTSTANDING. It was a ton of fun and allowed us to work through quite a few things. Your leadership in the event was remarkable.
Leo was amazing with this session, his energy was out of this world.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops generally take at least a few hours. It's outcome driven and designed to move the needle on a problem your organization is facing. Like any work session, it takes time to get to the desired outcome. Also, remember, you're benefiting from hearing from EVERYONE in the room, not just a few like most meetings.
Shorter workshops *can* be available depending on the outcome - let's have a conversation about it!
The answer is both! LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops can be done in person or virtually. If done virtually, participants will either need to pick up their kits from the office or have them sent to their home.
Since we custom-design the workshops for your organization, we'll need to understand more about your needs before we can determine what the investment amount is. There's a lot of factors that play into this - so it's best to have a call first.
The idea of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® was first developed in the mid-1990s when two professors at IMD Switzerland and The LEGO Group owner Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen were exploring alternate strategic planning tools and systems. The first use case for LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® was actually business strategy! Since then, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® has been in practice around the globe for more than 20 years.
