Why More Companies Are Putting Lego Bricks in the Office

By Skillme Up

This is the title of an interesting article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal (www.wsj.com/articles/why-more-companies-are-putting-lego-bricks-in-the-office-11661638344) some time ago, explaining why “Executives believe that bringing colorful brick toys helps with creativity, anxiety, and communication.

In recent years, businesses have shifted their approach to employee engagement, team building, and skill development through the use of “Serious Play”. So, after two decades and numerous workshops globally, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® seems to have finally achieved the recognition it deserves in terms of universal acceptance as an innovative and effective methodology.

Although using LEGO® bricks in business may seem unusual, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® fosters strategic thinking, idea generation, and effective communication.

It’s rooted in research showing that hands-on, minds-on learning enhances understanding, aligning with the complex adaptive system view of the world.

Since becoming certified in 2016, we been passionate about this methodology, trying to apply/integrate it in various contexts, including sales, which is my field of expertise, creating modules like “handling objections,” “value selling,” and “customer journey.”

This approach engages salespeople who may find traditional classroom settings uninspiring. Salespeople possess vast knowledge about markets, customers, products, and techniques, but often struggle to apply it effectively. LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® bridges this gap by activating their creativity and problem-solving abilities, unlocking hidden treasures of insight and innovation.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® revolutionizes thinking processes, unveiling and reshaping ingrained beliefs and values to create a shared understanding.

It fosters creativity and innovation by providing a non-judgmental space for exploring new ideas. Through hands-on building, individuals visually represent abstract concepts, leading to breakthrough insights.

3D construction enables the simulation of real-world scenarios, clarifying strategies previously obscured. This experiential learning enhances problem-solving skills and confidence.

Beyond its practical benefits, LSP also impacts organizational culture, reinforcing core values and fostering unity. This shared experience leads to a more cohesive workplace culture, driving organizational success in today’s fast-paced business landscape.

IF YOU ARE MATURE ENOUGH TO PLAYjoin Skillmeup on Apr 26th for a free demo at the IACCSE office.

Enrollment is limited to a maximum of 12 participants, so secure your spot now!

Leadership Transition at Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Southeast

After serving for more than seven years, President Tommaso Cardana has decided to step down with the conviction that he has fulfilled the primary objectives he set for the organization and to fully comply with the spirit of the new By-Laws of the Chamber that now establish a 6 years limit term for a President.

The leadership of the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Southeast (IACCSE) passes to another distinguished Italian entrepreneur, Graziano Sbroggio’, founder and owner of Graspa Group, one of the most successful restaurants’ groups in South Florida.

Cardana will continue to serve as a Board member.

“This decision was not easy” stated Cardana. “Serving as the chamber’s president has been a tremendous honor and one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I am proud of all we have achieved over the past years. I am confident that the Chamber will continue to flourish under Graziano Sbroggio’s leadership.”

During Mr. Cardana tenure as President, the IACCSE grew significantly reaching an historic milestone of more than 300 members, launched new and successful signature events, achieved positive financial results year after year, broadened its membership base across the Southeast with the opening of new chapters in major cities of the region, inaugurated a prestigious new office space in Brickell, and launched the Italian Lab project.

Graziano Sbroggio’ has been elected unanimously by the Board of Directors as new IACCSE President until the new board elections, that will take place in June 2025.

Mr. Sbroggio’ brings over 26 years of entrepreneurial experience, as he runs of one of Miami’s most successful restaurant groups. He has been a chamber member since the year 2000.

“I accepted this position because I believe in the crucial role the Chamber plays in connecting Italian and American businesses and in giving adequate representation to the Italian entrepreneurial community in the U.S. Southeast” said Sbroggio’ “Numerous presidents have led before me, each contributing uniquely to the chamber. I am honored to continue this legacy and I hope to have the support of as many people as possible, as a thriving organization is always the result of a collective effort”.

Following this leadership transition, the IACCSE Board of Directors is as follows: Mr. Graziano Sbroggio, (Owner of Graspa Group) – President; Mr. Claudio da Soller, (Senior Vice President and General Manager at Pininfarina of America Corp) – Executive Vice-President; Mrs. Dania Maccaferri, (CEO of Beghelli North America) – Vice President; Mr. Giacomo Bossa, (partner at Barakat + Bossa) – Secretary; Mr. Alberto Portolani, CEO of Neri North America Corp – Treasurer; with Mr. Costantino Cicchelli, CEO at Barba Skin Clinic, Mr. Gianluca Fontani, President of Man-Super!, Mr. Antonello Corrado, Partner of EXP Legal, Ms. Stefania Poli, COO of Omer USA, Mr. Fernando Rodriguez, Executive Vice President of A Custom Brokerage, and Tommaso Cardana, President of Tomson Hospitality, serving as Directors.
