Exploring your wellbeing with LEGO new Finished 16:00 - 17:40 Institute of Continuing Education, Madingley Hall

In this workshop you will explore what wellbeing means to you and how you could enhance yours. The workshop will use the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitation method to help explore complex topics.

Building with LEGO® bricks and using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitation will make sure that you, and the others in the group, contribute equally and understand each other. It will stimulate your thinking, communication and, problem solving skills and create an environment with insight, confidence and commitment. Your possibilities for learning are enormous.

To get the most from the session the group will work together using the basic principles of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®: 1. Question – an issue and a suitable open question is identified 2. Build – you make LEGO® brick models to answer the question from your own perspective 3. Share – you all explain your model using it as a metaphor to answer the question 4. Reflect – the group checks everyone’s understanding, and makes sense of the knowledge that has been unlocked.

100% of the participants are involved for 100% of the session unlike conventional workshops where 20% of the people do 80% of the talking and not everyone is engaged.

You will find the approach useful because:

  • We all have a unique perspective
  • Our brain works better in three dimensions
  • Playing in three dimensions lets us see more perspectives and have more ideas
  • Story-making and metaphors help you communicate more clearly
