Introduction to Lego Serious Play

Why Lego Serious Play?

 

  • Play allows us to develop new skills and opens us up to new opportunities and possibilities

 

  • Constructing things in the real world helps us construct knowledge in our heads- we can't solve problems with the same thinking that created them!

 

 

Challenge

 

Build

 

Share

 

Reflect

 

 

 

Meaning is important- be specific with meaning

 

Trust your hands, think with your hands

 

Listen with your eyes and ears

 

Everyone builds, everyone tells

 

Auditory, visual and kinesthetic

 

There is no right way to build and there are no wrong answers

Become a Lego Serious Play ninja in 3 steps

Step 1

 

Get used to connecting the bricks

 

 

You have 1 minute to build a tower

 

GO!

Each person share their model and explain what it is

 

Ask each other questions as you go along

 

2 minutes

 

 

Reflect together

 

What did you learn about each other?

 

Did you have different styles, use different colours?

 

3 minutes

Step 2

Get used to using the bricks as metaphor

 

 

 

You have 30 seconds to connect 5 random bricks in any way

 

GO!

Using what you have built, explain...

...your favourite musical artist

 

30 seconds each

 

GO!

...Leith

 

30 seconds each

 

GO!

...what dogs think

 

30 seconds each

 

GO!

Reflect together

 

What did you learn about each other?

 

What do you remember?

 

How did it feel to create stories quickly?

 

3 minutes

Step 3

Use the models to tell stories

 

You have 3 minutes to work alone and build your perfect day. What happens? What are the key elements of a perfect day?

 

GO!

Each person share their story

 

1 minute each

 

GO!

Now swap models and tell each other's stories

 

1 minute each

Reflect in the room

 

What did you learn about each other?

 

How was it using bricks as metaphors?

 

How did it feel to create stories quickly?

 

Did building bring new ideas to you?

 

3 minutes

Today's objective: To create a shared and aligned understanding of The Junction as a whole.

 

Our challenge: We need a wider understanding of what we all bring to The Junction, what roles we can play and what contribution we can have.

 

 

 

Task 1

 

Working alone, build a model to show what the key features and functions of The Junction are.

 

You have 10 minutes

 

 

Each person take turns talking through their model at the table. Tell your story- remember to point out the all the elements.

 

Ask each other questions as you go along.

 

10 minutes

 

 

 

Now build a model together.

 

1. Use flags to indicate the most important elements of your personal model. What do you feel must be included in the shared model?

 

2. Talk your team through your flagged parts. No waffle please! Remember to use metaphors.

 

3. Build a model together that represents your shared understanding of the key features and functions of The Junction. Borrow from each other and add things but be sure everyone knows what they are. Strong communication throughout is key.

 

You have 30 minutes

Pause!

 

Someone at the table play the story back to the table. Is it right?

 

5 minutes

Time to stop!

 

Each group share their story to the room.

 

What things are the same? What things are different?

 

What are you hearing? What are you learning?

 

15 minutes

 

 

Let's have lunch!

Task 2

 

Working alone, build a model that shows the skills, knowledge and attributes you have to support the organisation in delivering its aims and objectives.

 

You have 15 minutes

 

 

Now attach your model of what skills, knowledge and attributes you have to the shared model you created earlier.

 

Where does it fit? Which areas does it connect to?

 

15 minutes

 

 

Each table share to the room

 

10 minutes

 

Refect together

 

Where did we see and hear gaps?

 

What are the key points and takeaways?

Thank you!
