ABOUT LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®
LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® is a unique way of grappling with the opportunities for an organisation in an environment which is challenging and creative.
It is based on the premise that intelligence is not only intellectual: sometimes the best ideas can’t be expressed with words or even pictures, but needs to be built to be understood. Participants do this by essentially creating a prototype for their ideas in a no-risk environment.
The professional SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator will get participants out of an intellectual thought process, and into a playful mindset in response to a current opportunity or challenge, which helps them see possible solutions that they couldn’t otherwise express.
This process helps teams get to a clearer understanding of each other and their vision. It creates clarity, purpose, and shared understanding.

"The process was outstanding, in that it took me into a mental space I had never before played in and as a result the insights were fresh, highly impactful and full of innovative solutions to issues I had been struggling with for some time”.
backs from our senior execs was that it surprised them how effective the process was in visualising alternatives to things; they were amazed at how play toys became the tools of discovery into their own limitations and assumptions”.
Steve Glendinning - Group People Director, Mr Price Group Limited
"Elaine designed and executed a very clever and creative program using LEGO Serious Play that helped us to achieve our goal - crafting a set of principles to foster freedom of expression. Moreover, with colleagues from 14 different countries, LEGO became a common language and generated ideas that may have remained unearthed in a more traditional workshop methodology. Our delegates were hugely impressed!"

I recently met with Elaine Rumboll to help me solve an aspect in my company that I was not seeing clearly. We spent time working with LEGO SERIOUS PLAY and I was truly amazed at how the answers I was seeking was presented much more clearly and I could resolve what I was battling with before working with Elaine. Not only did I find answers to the main issue I initially came to see her about, but also other aspects of my business that needed attention was presented and with her exceptional insight I was able to shed light on those too. I HIGHLY recommend contacting Elaine about this remarkable work she does. You can only win.

The value of this innovative process transcends the corporate boardroom and can be extended into public sector, NGO-based and government projects. I would strongly recommend Elaine Rumboll as a Lego practitioner to those in need of a fresh, creative perspective for addressing what seem to be insurmountable challenges.

As a Play therapist, I am aware of the pow
er of Play to move people into Possibility. I was particularly struck by the power of Lego when I underwent a Lego process with Elaine. The process she led me through was insightful and provided much clarity. Her ability to harness her varied experience in Business and the Arts provided powerful questions which lead me to surprising and meaningful places for transformation. Anyone who is on a journey of conscious self-growth should go through this process.

Elaine's Serious Play process was the most transformative and insightful time that we've invested in our business strategy. She helped us see our own blind spots and opportunities more clearly than we have in hundreds of hours of meetings and consultations. The results have been transformative, culturally and financially. Her process is mind-blowingly efficient at getting to the real issues. Dave Duarte - Treeshake
