What is this about?

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a unique way to build insight, confidence and commitment.

It is based on the belief that the best solutions are always arrived at when the collective wisdom of the organization is harnessed.

Especially suited for senior leadership teams, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is increasingly being adopted by many leading organizations as the method of choice for ensuring more participation, more insights & ideas, while addressing a variety of key organizational challenges.

These process-facilitated sessions encourage learners to use lego bricks to build models based on prompts, reflecting the purpose of the session or the main challenge that the session is looking to solve. Learners give meaning to these models and discuss them in their group. This process prompts crucial discussions that lead teams to solutions to problems they sought to solve through the session.

This kind of a session democratizes voices by allowing everyone a chance to share, and creates a ‘lean-forward’ environment where everyone is engaged in the process and discussions and is inspired to create, unlike in a conference room around a table.

Our approach in designing a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® intervention

Learning is a journey. The LSP session is only a pitstop.
What can be done before & after to support the learning?

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® session uses a specially curated set of lego pieces that bring the whole methodology to life. This will be arranged by us.

No. This can be run only as an in-person session.

The ideal number of people in a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® session is 6-8. This ensures everyone in the room gets a chance to voice their thoughts and are heard. However, we have adapted these sessions for larger groups too when required using related methodologies.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is usually run as a half or full-day in-person session. The duration needed totally depends on the scope of the intervention. This cannot be run in an express-mode of 60-90 minutes.

The workshop experience was exhilarating for all participants where some quoted that the time flew as they worked and had fun, we achieved the outcome and felt motivated.

    When I first saw your huge clientele that included companies like Adobe, Deustche Bank and E&Y, I wondered - do large companies keep coming back since you're the best at what you do, or have you turned out to be the best at what you do because large companies keep coming back? That list will grow bigger as FocusU has certainly exceeded all expectation at our recent team building event.
