Great strategy is developed from within an organization: no one knows your business better than you and your team. Unfortunately, getting the team together, focused and participating can be a challenge, and even if you are able to accomplish that, often only 20% of the people do 80% of the talking. Great ideas from key people are often left unseen and unheard. People may say they agree, but often they are just complying to avoid conflict and get out of the meeting so they can get back to work.
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is different in that it encourages 100% participation from 100% of the people present. Using three-dimensional objects to represent ideas creates a safer environment for them to be discussed and understood.
What is LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, and why do we use it?
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a method for placing thoughts and ideas into three-dimensional objects so they can be better seen, understood, discussed and resolved.
An LSP workshop brings together your entire team in a highly focused environment and requires 100% participation from 100% of the people present. Instead of striving for an agreed upon idea created by the majority, an LSP workshop strives for a shared vision, allowing everyone to have a voice and leading to incredible insights and increased buy-in from everyone at the table.
The results are amazing.
Participants gain a deep understanding of their team’s goals, values and priorities and a clear path forward for achieving them.
Facilitating a session further helps Uptimize Marketing understand your business more quickly and thoroughly so we can develop and implement marketing plans that really work!
While we don’t have to use the LSP method to develop strategy, it is our preferred method because the results are so efficient and clear. Plus, it's all done with LEGO bricks, so what could be more fun?
LSP is most effective in-person; however, if you are not located in the Oklahoma City area or cannot easily get here, we can still find ways to work together. Contact us any time to learn more or discuss options.
