Warming Up: LSP Journey Part 3

I fully underestimated just how tiring training would be and I didn't manage to get my notes from my book into this space until now, a full two weeks later so I'm not sure how the gap will affect my reflections and I will probably miss out bits and pieces. Anyway, we started out by... Continue Reading →

Getting Started: LSP Journey Part 2

I went into my first day unsure of what to expect. Having previously facilitated LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshops I was slightly apprehensive that I might learn that there were hard and fast rules to follow, rather than the free flowing approach I had taken using case studies online.

2017: Risky Business

Confession: In true click bait form there are no dubious teenage antics, including dancing in underpants, to be found in this post.
