8 Benefits of Lego Serious Play
by PEDRO SOLORZANO
Many people ask me about the benefits of lego® serious play® for events. Also for workshops and team coaching and why they are so powerful for working with companies and teams.
These are 8 benefits of workshops with lego serious play methodology:
100% participation. This is the greatest benefit of Lego Serious Play. Contrary to other workshop formats where there is an 80/20 participation
Communication with the 5 senses. All channels, Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic are used, which results in Generous Listening
Connect mind and hands so conscious and unconscious ideas take real 3D shape
Tell the story through the built model. Enhances participants’ understanding and empathy by sharing that understanding with the group
Improvement in decision making. By being able to understand the systemic consequences of such decisions.
It helps team members and the team to visualize their current situation. And to establish and visualize their goals, it helps them know how to get there.
It helps to get out of the “comfort zone”. Progressively as you meet construction challenges. And count them through metaphors and storytelling.
Establish lasting commitments and stronger relationships.

What is the duration of a Lego® Serious Play® workshops?
The average duration of a Lego Serious Play workshop can range from 4 hours to 2 days in 8-hour days. I can also do “demos” for events or for HR departments from 1 to 2 hours. Everything will depend on the needs and objectives of the workshop, the event or the “demo”.
What is the recommended number of attendees in a Lego Serious Play workshop?
The number of attendees will be determined by the company based on the event. I recommend a number of participants between 4 to 12 people. Overcoming this, more facilitators will be needed. I have held events for more than 100 people, appointing representatives by tables. It can also be used as a tool in an individual coaching process.
Examples of workshops with an average duration of 1 or 2 days:
- Strategic planning
- Contemplate and design future scenarios
- Onboarding sessions
- Solving complex problems
- Development of new business ideas
- Business values
- Team Values
- Improve team communication
- Empathetic communication
- Creation of new distribution channels
- Improving customer relationships
- Corporate Social Responsibility
- Improve customer service
- Shared vision
…. and countless other applications
