MEETING FACILITATION AND CONFERENCE EVENTS
INVENTED TO FACILITATE MEETINGS
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method has been invented to make strategic planning meetings effective and boost participatory leadership. It is still used mainly for this purpose – to facilitate meetings professionally. Professional meeting facilitation using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is possible with management teams, senior leadership, project teams, at conferences and forums. Businesses, non-profits, volunteers, and even private events can be facilitated with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® .
ANYONE CAN PARTICIPATE
Any amount of participants, any types of events and any themes are possible. Conferences, workshops, discussions, informal events, like family and friends gatherings – anyone can participate and build!
FACILITATING CORPORATE AND CONFERENCE EVENTS
With large audiences, the method can be an effective networking. People get to know each other better and start professional discussions at once. Effective communication of programs and decisions, making them clear and fit to the context could be another purpose. Working with 3D stories on general statements and policies builds the bridge between values and behaviors. The session results in ownership of ideas. People commit to the stories and metaphors build and remember them. The take-away becomes an exact, personalized goal. A clear WHY answers what to do next.
If you are too shy to come out and introduce yourself or keep away from hot debates, LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a great solution. It is always about the model and the story – where you are present as in a mirror. Build your model together with other participants, share the story – like all the others. All stories are listened to, and ARE important and remembered. You are the keynote! And everyone participates in a panel. Every point of view is heard. Everyone participate in the discussion and decision to be taken. No exclusion or exceptions.
BUILDING LARGE TEAMS
With large events, team building effect is still there. It is not possible to go deep, like in a small group. For example, explore relationships and feelings. But it is possible to create a powerful team spirit, working together with LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® . We do not do small talk, but we explore together the same question. We speak open and share thoughts. Therefore we are the team to work out the answer.
PROFESSIONAL MEETING FACILITATION
If you think about a large LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® event, there is a lot of things to work on.
Facilitating large corporate and conference events will work in a different way. It also demands professional meeting facilitation skills. See to the following:
- specific workshop design for large groups
- defining clear, reachable goals
- shorter events
- more people involved in facilitation
- managing technical and supply issues etc.
HOW LONG LARGE EVENTS CAN BE?
We suggest 1-2 hours as the optimal time with large groups.
However,with a team of 25-60 you can work longer. But it always demand more facilitation efforts and support. Contact us to find the unique solution for your purpose.
