The official LEGO website has been going through an update of late, and we noticed last week that they have also updated the LEGO Serious Play section... so it's lovely to see they have used a photo taken by SeriousWork founder Sean Blair.
The image shows a facilitator standing on top of a well designed process (the orange section of the wall), unlocking the wisdom of a group (the Owl on the collective brain Orb), and connecting participants focus towards achieving a shared outcome (the Orb on top of the white pillar) and creating different kinds of value (the treasure chest)
The Red, Orange, Yellow and Green wall was built to reflect the 4 phases of the core ProMeet process, that we use all the time as a framework in designing and faciliating meetings.
You can see the original un-cropped photo below:
It shows the importance of the preparation phase: The facilitator with an empty and non-judgemental mind seeking to view the intended outcome from a higher view (on top of the ladder), truing to focus the clients attention on their objectives (small yellow eye looking at the red objectives part of the process.
This model was built nearly 5 years ago and I can still remember what it means. It's a bonus the the LEGO Group have chosen to use our photo on the homepage of the official LEGO Serious Play website. :)
