In LEGO SERIOUS PLAY the bricks serve as a common language that everyone can use, regardless of their education, position or culture. This ensures that everyone’s knowledge and insights are surfaced.
The starting focus in LEGO SERIOUS PLAY is on each individual and not the group. This means that the structure of the process requires everyone to be actively involved in the decision process, which increases the probability that all parties will honour the decisions, ideas and agreements after the meeting. People become genuinely emotionally committed to the things they build and/or build together. We usually demonstrate this early in the workshop by asking participants to dismantle their first build. It usually results in a round of “ohs!”.
