Twelve facts about LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Faciliation Training
1. LEGO doesn't do LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitation training
Because of this fact, the LEGO Group instead say there are two routes for attending LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® training. Facilitators training in the original method or "facilitators training in an expanded version of the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method".
2. SeriousWork advances LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator training SeriousWork training embodies the expansion the LEGO Group refer to.
3. SeriousWork trained the LEGO Foundation In 2017, when the LEGO Foundation sought training on LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®, they reviewed all trainers on the market and selected SeriousWork. Our model of helping you learn is summarised in points 4-12 below.
4. Learn to facilitate, not participate SeriousWork training is the polar opposite to “master-learner” approach of most trainers of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology.
SeriousWork does not teach you how to participate in a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop, instead you develop your facilitation skills with the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology. Facilitation centric, not subject centric.
5. Practice based learning is simply better After instruction, participants in SeriousWork training take turns to facilitate the group. This practice helps you develop your facilitation skills and you learn from the experience of how others facilitate the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology.
Each sprint is linked to an important facilitator skill set. Uniquely, you also get to practice with a group you’ve never met. On the afternoon of day 2 you facilitate people new to LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® in an introductory workshop with a small groups of four or five people.
6. Learn in a small group, have time to practice! In order to learn how to facilitate and have time for everyone in the group to practice new skills means SeriousWork limit courses to 6 people. Most other training providers recruit bigger groups which is another reason why they use a 'master-learner' (not-practice based) approach.
7. Focus on the core LEGO® Serious Play® skills SeriousWork training focuses on Build Level 1 “Individual Model Building” and Build Level 2 “Shared Model Building”. These are the foundation skills of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®. We don’t teach Build Level 3 “System Model Building” in the classroom, instead learn this advanced skill on live projects (see 9. below).
8. Learn core LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® skills in two days SeriousWork knows that your time is valuable and focus on teaching the core LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® skills in two days.
9. Learn advanced LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® skills on live projects
Our experience clearly shows that Build Level 3 “System Model Building” is best learnt on live assignments, co-facilitating together with a experienced level 3 facilitator, who will teach you at the same time.
10. Learn with (and from) other professionals SeriousWork only train high quality groups of learners who share a professional ethos and who bring additional value and insight to our masterclasses.
11. Get a higher level certificate In other programmes people get a certificate of completion (for showing up). SeriousWork certificates are a higher level because graduates have practiced and refined their facilitation skills during the training.
12. Serious Work masterclasses are run by practitioners who occasionally teach
This gives you a grounded real-world instruction with advice and examples throughout the training about how to successfully use the method in all kinds of different assignments, applications, group size and available time.
