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.

I recently read a book aboutStorydoing™ written by Ty Montague. It was called “True Story: How to Combine Story and Action to Transform Your Business”. The book created the concept of storydoing and differentiated it from the regular marketing approach that primarily relies on storytelling – coming up with a story and labelling the product according to story.

How Serious Play Leads To Breakthrough Innovation

How Serious Play Leads To Breakthrough Innovation | Serious Play | Scoop.it

IN CREATIVE INTELLIGENCE, BRUCE NUSSBAUM ARGUES THAT BUILDING A SPACE AWAY FROM NORMAL ACTIVITY, WHERE PEOPLE TRUST EACH OTHER AND AGREE TO BEHAVE BY A DIFFERENT SET OF RITUALS, IS KEY TO ENHANCING A TEAM’S CREATIVE CAPABILITY.

 

The following is an excerpt from Creative Intelligence by Bruce Nussbaum (HarperBusiness), out March 5th.

Ariana Amorim's insight:

"If you still think you don’t have the capacity for Creative Intelligence, try reframing aspects of your work or your life in a more playful way: Approach obstacles at work or in your life not as problems to be solved, but as challenges to be met. When a new task comes your way, put together a team of people you trust, encourage each other to be honest (that’s another area where serious play diverges from brainstorming, with its emphasis on positive encouragement at the expense of open dialogue), and let everyone know it’s okay to look a little silly."

Humour and Serious Play “Jar”

Humour and Serious Play “Jar” | Serious Play | Scoop.it

Humour and Play fostering creative thinking

(studies show creativity is enhanced after experiencing humour)

“Laughter provides a train wreck for the mind, suspending thought and being in the moment, which opens the channels for innovative, creative thinking. You can’t think while you are laughing. Try it. Try doing a calculus problem (or moving a couch) while in the throes of laughter. It can’t be done. But what it does do is metaphorically open the cranial channels and allow for creative, innovative thinking to emerge.” (Lemons, G. 2005)

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.
