In today’s fast-paced businesses environment, organizations in all industries and service sectors are forming task and project teams to get the work done. Everyone from healthcare professionals to marketing teams, IT teams, community leaders, and even public school teachers must help teams perform at their highest capacity.

Multidisciplinary teams are often developed to work on projects that are more complex, with constantly changing requirements. But how can we take teams to the highest level of functionality where they are equipped to:

 

  1. Respectfully take full advantage of the talent on the team?
  2. Make the best use of their resources (time, people, budget, operations, etc.)?
  3. Use creative thinking to effectively solve problems faster and better, to find innovative solutions?
  4. Use 3D creative tools like LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® to understand team interests and talents, stakeholder interests & positions, visioning, and to plan strategy?
  5. Gain the competencies help move multifunction project teams from the conception stage to the implementation of an action stage in iterative steps?

 

This training provides team coaches, educators, and facilitators with a ready-to-go program they can deliver to teach, coach, and facilitate better ways for teams to work together on project-based work.  Research indicates that teams that are flexible, adaptable, and agile are more successful as they navigate messy problems in real time, and that’s why we have developed this hands-on, interactive training. The experience is so powerful, memorable, and applicable that learning goes immediately from the training room to the project floor.

 

As the facilitator/ leader, you learn to train "from the back of the room" and use teachable moments to coach a team to success. You provide the process and the learning happens organically as the project unfolds. This is a play-based, fast-paced program, where participants are 100% engaged as they work together to solve a real-world problem using both LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methods and LEGO® Mindstorms robots and materials. You will learn to adapt and design this core program to your unique environment to deliver your project based training workshop that will rock.  

 

This training highlights leadership, conflict management, creative problem solving, and diversity of thinking all at once. You will see, hear, and do in this interactive program as you experience how to get a project done and done well, on time and with the resources available.
