Team Building Activities With Lego Bricks | Serious Play Pro | Serious Play | Scoop.it

David Weedmark has written a good and simple post about Team Building Activities With Lego Bricks on eHow where he has summarised well the core essence of using Lego Serious Play in team building activities. Nice photos by Laura Beth Drilling from Demand Media

Lego isn’t just about fun and games. For team building exercises, working with Lego helps enhance creative and critical thinking skills while giving employees an opportunity to — at least to some degree — act like kids again. In fact, development coaches have been using Lego for years in team-building exercises.

Recess in the rain... and snow... and... | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Whether it’s snow, rain, poor air quality, or extreme cold, inclement weather can put a kink in school recess. Kids need physical activity every day. Students benefit from play outdoors, including the fresh air, sunlight, increased space to run and even the change of scenery. Time outside is healthy and helps students return to the classroom ready to learn again. Parents and educators can help children get their necessary daily physical activity regardless of the weather conditions.

Few factors in the workplace have more impact on productivity than the ability of co-workers to perform as a team. However, not every business has the resources or time to dedicate to professional grade training programs to enhance those skills. Ideally, a human resources department could find a low cost tool that could encourage team activities and cooperation. Creative games using Lego building blocks are inexpensive and engaging ways to help develop teams.

This is a simple but fun team building exercise most suitable for outdoors. This exercise can also be a fun activity for kids. You can run competitively and give a prize to the winner. It helps to train people on staying focused while being totally aware of their environment and the dynamic changes.
