Last week we got together with 8 Dutch Certified LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitators to discuss forming a community of Dutch facilitators through opening a meetup group. It was great fun to meet one another, meeting good friends and making new ones. We had prepared a session to discuss how to work together, but consensus was already there before entering the room: Yes, we would open up a Dutch community of LSP facilitators!
We ate our own dog food to come to a mission statement for this new to be formed group. One of our own, Edwin de Vos facilitated the session and together we built and discussed: what are we here for? It must have been challenging for Edwin, facilitating and joining the session at the same time, but we had good fun and had a great discussion.
The following is the mission statement of our new Dutch community as can be found here on meetup: http://www.meetup.com/LegoSeriousPlayHolland/pages/LEGO®_SERIOUS_PLAY®_Holland_mission_statement/
The mission of LEGO SERIOUS PLAY Holland:
Working on the growth and success of LSP and our facilitators in a fun, open and transparant way.
During the kickstart of our meetup group we talked and built a long time about why we are coming together, what we would like to achieve and for whom.
We are targeting these groups:
- LSP facilitators
- Potential LSP clients
- Potential LSP facilitators
What we would like to do in this meetup group is:
- Share with each other
- Learn from one another
- Inspire each other
- Bring more attention to LEGO SERIOUS PLAY
- Connect together to strengthen each other
- Make an effort for Non-profit organizations
Together we have come to the following values and attitudes:
- Constructive criticism
Hope to see you soon at a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Holland meetup!
