LEGO Serious Play: A Multicultural Approach

Empowering Training with LEGO Serious Play: A Multicultural Approach

In the competitive world of training and development, the LEGO Serious Play methodology has emerged as an exceptional tool for idea generation, problem-solving, and team collaboration. In this article, we will explore how this innovative methodology can be further empowered by a multicultural facilitator, bringing a unique perspective from experiences in 40 different countries.

Introduction to LEGO Serious Play

LEGO Serious Play is much more than a construction game with bricks. It is a structured technique that encourages communication, collaboration, and creativity within teams. By building three-dimensional models using the iconic LEGO bricks, participants can express complex ideas visually and tangibly. This facilitates a deeper understanding of issues and challenges, leading to more innovative and effective solutions.

Breaking Cultural Barriers with a Multicultural Facilitator

Imagine having a facilitator with an impressive background: 40 years of life, living in 40 different countries, and accumulating over 40,000 unique stories. This multicultural facilitator not only masters various languages but also possesses a profound understanding of cultural differences and team dynamics across different parts of the world.

The Magic of Cultural Diversity

In an increasingly globalized world, cultural diversity is an invaluable asset. A multicultural facilitator can leverage this diversity to enrich LEGO Serious Play sessions. Each culture has its own perspective on problem-solving and idea generation. By integrating these diverse approaches, solutions that might have otherwise gone unnoticed can be discovered.

Building Bridges Among Multinational Teams

Multinational companies often face unique challenges due to the diversity of their teams. A multicultural facilitator can act as a bridge between different groups of employees, helping them understand and appreciate cultural differences, as well as finding effective ways to work together. The LEGO Serious Play methodology, combined with the experience of a multicultural facilitator, can pave the way for more open and collaborative communication.

The Power of Shared Stories

One of the most impactful aspects of a multicultural facilitator is their ability to connect people through shared stories. Anecdotes and personal experiences can create emotional bonds among participants, which in turn can drive creativity and team cohesion. By using LEGO Serious Play as a platform to share these stories, an environment of trust and openness is created, facilitating genuine exchange.
