Part of my Executive Training Program; the innovation Lab encourages participants to think "through their fingers” using the iconic LEGO bricks. The colorful pieces act also as a confidence builder, getting people into a teaming sense of mind. A good technique for stimulating the right & left brain and for having people think spatially and creatively.
On top of that, playing with bricks does give a sense of mastery and accomplishment as participants learn how to transform ideas into concrete concepts, be open to experimentation, rapid testing and finish what they started (accelerating innovation or other product development initiatives for instance). Opportunities for self-expression and common understanding are also created by sharing their models. Everyone gets a chance to speak up their minds individually and in teams.
This might be a very actionable way to be successful with your plan when it comes to their personal development. So it may be applied to your coaching activities too. I personally use it in all my sessions. Bricks can open your mind!
All in all, a very good technique for facilitating meaningful learner engagement and sustainable impact; unleashing insight, inspiration and imagination. But I think the photostream probably says a lot more than few lines of text ever could.
And don´t forget, learn to think and make with your hands.
