DIVERSE PARTICIPANTS?

Choose The LSP Method

The LSP Method is unique in many ways. But one factor that sets it apart is its ability to bring a diverse group together.

Putting a workshop together to solve a problem can be daunting. But even more daunting is getting the right stakeholders. And the challenge is compounded when the key participants are diverse. Because you want to not only bring them together but also derive a meaningful outcome of it.

Enter the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) Facilitation Method. It’s really a good idea to use the LSP Method when participants are diverse. This could be diversity in age, organizational status or training and background.

The LSP Method: The focus is on the model

In an LSP workshop, the focus during the entire workshop is always on the model. That means not only that the diverse participants will work together but also that the workshop will move forward meaningfully. Age, hierarchy no bar.

The LSP Method:  The 100/100 method

So inclusive is the method that 100 per cent of the participants are engaged 100 % of the time. This leaves no one out and everyone’s voice is heard. The outcome is one of consensus and the way forward is decided by the group. This ends up in all the participants coming together with a common understanding and frame of reference that will impact their work after the meeting.

The LSP Method: Comfortable with diversity

So if you are grappling with diverse participants, one way of looking at addressing it is with the LSP Method: a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop. Because when it comes to diversity – the only diversity you experience in an LSP workshop is the diversity of thought and models which means you get insights that lead to solutions.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a facilitated meeting, communication and problem-solving method, where participants are led through a series of questions, which go deeper and deeper. Each participant builds his or her own three-dimensional LEGO model in response to the facilitator’s questions using specially selected LEGO bricks. These 3D models serve as the basis for group discussion, knowledge sharing, problem solving and decision-making.
