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!
