How we teach it
We deliver the training over three days using the course designed by Master Trainer Jacquie Lloyd Smith, founder of Strategic Play Global. By the end of the course, you will be equipped with a deep understanding of the method, how to apply it to team and group settings and the confidence to go ahead and start delivering your own LSP workshops. Upon completing the course, you will be a fully certified and registered Lego Serious Play facilitator.
There is no additional training or certification required beyond this course, though many of the people we train take further specialist courses focusing on topics like Creative Problem Solving and Design Thinking.
To support our LSP certified facilitators, we run a monthly Meetup to discuss tips and techniques to make your next workshop a raving success. You will have the opportunity to discuss ideas and workshop plans with other practitioners.
Day 1: Foundation
Learn the basics. We introduce you to the Lego Serious Play tool. You will learn how to use the tools with a setting, including Flow theory, the Johari Window, the use of ground rules to set the playing field, etiquette, and traps to avoid, along with numerous applications for different situations to prep the hand-brain connection.
Day 2: Teams and Groups
The second day moves participants thorough processes where individual identity is explored and insight into how the tools can be customised for any number of workshops or functions, including team workshops.
Day 3: Landscape and Systems Development
The third day of the training will explain how to use the LSP Identity and Landscape Materials kit to build 3D models that illustrate the complex environments where entities like teams and projects and other interconnected systems function and how these environments ‘play out’ in real-time.
