Lego Serious Play. A remarkably adult way of working

Adrian Crookes, (pictured) is a course leader at the London College of Communication. At the end of a workshop I facilitated this week, he reflected,
“I thought LEGO Serious play was a remarkably adult way of getting together to discuss issues and problems”. Conversely meetings using post-it notes and flip charts seem to infantilise by comparison.”
I love this comment because it challenges the negative perceptions that inevitably arise with a process that contains the words “LEGO” and “Play”.
Of course sometimes traditional style meetings are appropriate and post-it notes and flip charts, used well, help teams create the results they seek.
But next time you need to get serious thinking on a complex systemic issue, then maybe its time to use a remarkably adult toolkit?
