Amazon reviews of SERIOUSWORK

By James

An excellent book written by a master of meetings

This! Is an excellent book written by someone who has mastered how to lead a truly effective meeting. If you are curious about LSP (lego serious play) it will blow your mind and unlock individual and collective potential.
By Alex

A much-needed and welcome addition to the literature on Lego Serious Play

An excellent introduction to the Lego Serious Play methodology and how it can be applied within workshop and meeting settings. Having read Kristiansen & Rasmussen's Building a Better Business using the Lego Serious Play Method which focuses more on the theory which underpins LSP methodology, I had many questions about the practicalities of LSP, which led me on a search to find out more and quickly led me to this book. I'm glad it did.

The book provides a concise overview of what LSP is and its broad applications and sufficient theory without resorting to the sort of academic depth that may turn off many readers, before moving into the practicalities - the main focus of the book. For example, the book details what lego bricks you need, suggested workshop schedules together with facilitator and room set-up notes…

A practical book that will have you heading for your box of bricks

The book is well laid out, clear and easy to read with really good images... It describes the basics of LSP throughly and is far better than the open source documents you can find online. The authors take time to explain things in a way that doesn't patronise the reader... this is useful as and more importantly provides a practical structure that any facilitator will value.

I really valued the section on the mindset of the facilitator as participative and how we should have "Outcomes not meetings". This was a complete bonus and not something I had expected at all. The workshop outlines are excellent and written from the perspective of a facilitator which means they are practical and usable. I will be adapting some of these into my workshops! The case studies and advice from other practitioners make this a "can do" book! Lastly, the access to online resources is really handy too!
