Build a Model
Build.. Tell.. Understand..
LEGO® is more than just a toy! LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is an innovative methodology that uses LEGO® bricks in consulting services as a tool to challenge business ideas and strategic objectives. The method was developed by global management experts in collaboration with LEGO®. Since the early 2000s, it has been used by some of the world's most innovative companies, such as Microsoft, Harvard, Google, Pfizer, and others.
As a creative leadership consultant and soft skills workshops' facilitator, I bring with me an in-depth understanding of the creative process. Since 2016, I'm a Certified Facilitator of the Global Association of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology. I have facilitated workshops worldwide for business and academic clients, such as King's College London, Regent's University London, Media Exchange, ZEGO, Jerusalem Film and TV Fund and others.
Each time I facilitate a new workshop, I am amazed again by the power of LEGO® to connect people, drive innovation, and foster out-of-the-box thinking. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology is great to include in an away-day activity, as a short workshop to drive the creative process, or to explore a problem as a team.
