In the last 4 years I have used LEGO® Serious Play (aka LSP) very often and the result has been extraordinary. However, due to the growing style of working remotely, I started to ask myself if I could use LEGO SERIOUS PLAY when I am in a remote environment. In the last 2 months, I set my goal to try it. The first thing I needed to find was a safe environment for trying it; then a few volunteers. I got them both. I really want to express my appreciation to the LEGO Serious Play Facilitator Network (www.seriousplaypro.com) for allowing me to set this up and of course to my volunteers, for dedicating between 60 and 90 min of their time to try it. THANK YOU Patricia, Gabriel, Marko and Catherine!
Finished with the introduction, now, let me share with you the results of this experience. I really think that LEGO SERIOUS PLAY has good potential in a remote environment; however, there are a few considerations to keep in mind that normally we don’t think about when we do it face to face. By the way, in this case, I am sharing the experience of 1-to-1 meeting with LEGO SERIOUS PLAY, so if you are thinking of LEGO SERIOUS PLAY as a coaching or interview tool, it is for you.
