LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Methodology Facilitator Program

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is an internationally renowned facilitation process used by organisations to generate innovative ideas from their staff. The methodology is based on extensive research and enables teams to address complex issues in an engaging way.

DAY 1: Foundation program: Use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® in short applications or sessions such as induction, ice-breakers, recruitment, interviews.

DAY 2:  Foundation & Special Application program: Development of the specific way in which you would like to integrate this methodology into your existing sessions

DAY 3:  Full Serious Play Certification program: This day will provide you with advanced skills that you need to design, run and market intensive sessions based on LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®.

MCI has been delivering LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® sessions for the past 9 years and is the most experienced organisation in Australia in the use and application of the methodology. We have traveled the globe to design and facilitate workshops, conferences, strategy sessions and team building events. 

No other provider has credentials that include facilitating diversity sessions at Microsoft in the USA, holding open classes in the UK for coaches, delivering HR conference sessions in Singapore and creating and facilitating organisational change workshops in Hong Kong.

Dr. Denise Meyerson, who leads the MCI LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® team, was one of the 4 original master trainers appointed by the LEGO® Group in 2011.  Denise continued to innovate and push the methodology into new areas such as executive coaching, business modeling and conflict management. Denise has written two books including her latest edition "What the duck" that covers new and exciting ways in which the use of the methodology benefits teams and organisations to improve their level of engagement and overall performance.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® enables your team to have some serious fun as they uncover creative ways of taking the business forward - as well as deeper personal insights.  Our Train the Trainer program goes beyond what is freely available on the internet and ensures that you have the skills and the confidence to structure, plan and deliver a session that really makes a difference for the participants.

“The team at MCI have been great to work with, from early discussions, through shaping the training and then delivery.  My team have come back from the training sessions more closely knit, enthused and full of ideas.  What more could I ask for?  One of my team members said “I have been on a lot of training, but this was by far the best and the most useful".”
