Building Ideas With Data - LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Workshop

With LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® we build, we share, we learn.

Building Ideas With Data will explore how we can think creatively with data to tell stories about our work, our impact and our vision.

The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) Method is based on a set of fundamental beliefs about leadership and organisations. People naturally want to contribute, be part of something bigger and take ownership of ideas. All too often, leaders leave knowledge untapped in their teams but allowing each team member to contribute and
speak out results in more sustainable business.
