A model built by participants on a SeriousWork in-house Lego Serious Play training course to explain the fundamental skills needed to facilitate Lego Serious Play. The process was also facilitated by the course participants. (The build question was "Build a model to show the fundamental or key skills you need to facilitate Lego Serious Play".)

Regarding the training, the outcome was more than we expected. It was hands-on, and thoroughly enjoyable; Sean gave us examples that were relevant to our corporate mission. And most importantly, he not only demonstrated complete mastery in the use of the methodology, but also provided powerful insights beyond his book and material.
In addition to the training, Sean run two strategic planning workshops: i) with our management team and, ii) with our whole sector consisting of about 150 participants. He took the time to understand well our organization, its challenges during the merger of three units, and was fully committed to deliver an exceptional service. Sean is an engaging and effective communicator, who establishes a customer driven experience from the very beginning. Outstanding facilitator, always positive, and with a pleasant disposition. Thank you so very much Sean. It was a genuine pleasure to work with you!"
In the Serious Work Training in May 2017 we set the students the build question "Build a shared model to show the super powers facilitators have".
Here is participant Paul Brown telling the story of the shared model:
Most trained LEGO Serious Play Facilitators begin workshops with a skills build and 'build a tower' is a common first build task. In this short video, ProMeet Associate Caroline Jessop argues that asking participants to build a model of a duck is a better first build. What do you think?
Use this technique to share a small model to a room full of people, when you have a workshop with more than 20 participants.
