Lego® Serious Play™ (LSP) is a powerful group facilitation methodology in which participants are given Lego® bricks and invited to take part in a series of Lego® building challenges that reflect situations going on in their workplace and teams. Through real-life examples and experiences, the seminar will explore the benefits of using the LSP methodology within a business context, discuss resistance to experiential learning tools and techniques within corporate environments, and address ways in which LSP may lead to authentic and insightful conversations within business school study groups and managerial teams, in particular around issues of strategy, leadership, innovation and change management.
