Advanced LEGO Serious Play facilitator training
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Facilitation Training and Certification

AdvancedLEGO® Serious Play®Facilitator Training

Advanced. System model facilitation.

Systems thinking, made visible.

System models allow groups to explore situations dynamically. Once built, by physically moving one node of a system model, groups can see impacts and consequences elsewhere in the model. Like so much else in LEGO Serious Play, we have improved many of the original techniques and we frame systems model workshops as a way to make systems thinking visible.

In a world where evidently we are poor at understanding the consequences of actions, LEGO Serious Play Build Level 3: System modelling is a much needed method. We will be pleased to teach you how to plan, design and deliver a system level workshop.

We run Build Level 3: System model training
online and face-to-face.

Get a systemic outlook. Help others see the bigger picture.
This is serious facilitation

LEGO Serious Play is an incredibly powerful communication tool even before you get to Build Level 3: System Models. Then it's a niche technique for a subset of facilitators and we think it is best learnt after people already know how to facilitate Build Levels 1 and 2.

The difficult part of this is not facilitating the build of the model, but planning and designing a workshop to then use the system model to deliver real insight. But done well systems model workshops can be almost magical experiences for participants.

See you in class

Systems facilitator training
You can attend a four day training that covers all the content of our 2 day core skills training then we spend days 3 and 4 learning to design and facilitate Build Level 3: System model workshops.

We also run a two day advanced class
for those who are already certified and have core LEGO Serious Play facilitation skills.

In both cases in the advanced skills training you’ll participate in a Build Level 3 workshop. You'll learn how to plan, prepare and follow up from a system-model workshop. You'll learn from case studies to see how it works in the real-world and we'll give you templates and you will design your own Build Level 3 workshop.

After training join a learning-circle where you can keep on learning together.

Systems Work Online

Work at the cutting edge
In 2020 we pioneered online LEGO Serious Play and wrote the book describing how to facilitate the foundation components of #OnlineLSP - individual and shared model building.

In 2021 we designed, piloted and refined the online techniques for System Models. And we've cracked it! Watch a video of participant feedback below or read a
detailed report from LSPConnect founder Guy Stephens, who kindly participated in one of our pilot classes. In his own words, "Can a Systems Build be done online effectively? For me, the answer is yes. Without a doubt."

To learn to design and facilitate Online LEGO Serious Play workshops join one of our new
online classes.
