Course Description

“You can learn more about a person in an hour of play than you can from a lifetime of conversation” by Plato

The effectiveness of your communication can have many different effects in your life, amongst which:
✓ Managing your level of stress
✓ Improving your relationship with others
✓ Increasing your level of satisfaction with life
✓ Enhancing productivity
✓ Ability to meet your goals and achieve your dreams
✓ Ability to solve problems with others
✓ Make collaborative decisions when you do not have all the answers

Becoming a good communicator goes beyond just conversing with others. There are verbal and non-verbal cues that you have to be mindful of in order to emotionally connect with others. Too many times in teams and organizations, communication breakdown occurs owing to clashes of ego, biases of opinion and lack of mindfulness.

The good news is that you can enhance communication and collaboration by engaging in tactile skills that stimulates interest in others. It is not just about hearing or listening, it is also what you see and do in communication that counts as well. The key to dynamic communication is giving attention to what others say and what you are saying to others. A candid way to achieve this is to enhance your communication and collaboration skills using Lego® Seriousplay™ [LSP].

Engaging in LSP gives you the opportunity to help keep your attention focus when you are communicating. With LSP you can essentially assist in levelling up relationships within teams and organizations as it allows you to:

✓ Discover new things about yourself and that of your team
✓ Build empathy among team members
✓ Gain a better understanding of the bigger picture
✓ Tackle challenging situations and conflicts head-on
✓ Rapidly build consensus
✓ Engage collaboratively to work on shared goals and values
