All of our training programs have a basis in the Instructor-Led Participant-Centered instructional model. People learn best when their stress levels are low and they are playing with concepts and ideas in an environment that supports innovation and fun.
When we use this formula people are more engaged. They are open to new ideas, allowing them to absorb and retain information. And then they are able to integrate and apply what they have learned. We use numerous techniques to meet all learning styles.
We model the tools that we teach – so you will experience first hand what it’s like to be both a participant and a facilitator.
A good session starts by creating an experience that allows participants to become engaged. You know your workshop is going to have an impact when participants are more aware and gain insight and integrate knowledge faster.
When facilitators accomplish this level of competency they can feel confident that their sessions will provide a good return on the employer’s investment.
We have been offering LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY™ workshops to clients throughout North America for many years. Since 2007, we have offered specialized training to license and certify in-house facilitators to use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY™ in their organizations.
In 2009, Jacqueline Lloyd Smith was invited to sit on the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY™ training board. She became one of four people globally trained by the LEGO group to offer LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY™ training.
We teach you how to get 100% engagement using hands-on interactive tools that can be modified to meet the unique needs of your clients.
You will learn the basics of great facilitation, how to create a playful environment and how to customize and deliver a workshop that has long lasting impact.
We know that most people learn visually and through doing- this tool takes advantage of all learning and communication styles creating memorable and powerful workshop experiences.
Learn how to structure your sessions and deliver your workshops with impact that builds confidence and adds to the overall competency base for your client or organization. Using this formula will help you become a facilitator who is in demand.
Small class sizes allow for unique learning experiences that help prepare you to start offering this tool within your tool kit immediately.
