Certified Facilitator in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology
Online Micro Certification in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology (Online)
We offer you an excellent concept and tool to run creative and impactful workshops both F2F and online.
Our Online Micro Certification is designed for you to learn and master the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method, so that you can run creative and impactful workshops both F2F and online for infinite purposes.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) method offers a unique way of getting processes, from your head and through your hands, out on the table. How? By giving everyone a key question and letting them answer it through a LEGO® model.
When we focus on building, the interaction between the brain and hands is activated, and our hands and imagination take over. This unlocks new insights, new opportunities – and new stories that participants share through their LEGO® models. You can read much more about the LSP method here »

- Inclusion and recognition of all regardless of background, experience, or knowledge.

What do our participants say?
“During the training I really got some ideas, that I can use directly in the classroom. I said to myself quite a few times: ‘This is a great idea! I could use this.’ That was a benefit to me right away and some of the techniques and the exercises that we worked through will apply directly to the things that I want to teach.”
– Rob Sorensen, College instructor, Canada.
“Learning to use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® in an online environment has been a brilliant experience. As someone whose entire team is now working from home, Inthrface’s training for an online application of LSP has provided me with a way to improve engagement in the team and generate positive outcomes remotely.”
– Savannah, USA

Online hybrid training what is that?
In these trainings, we combine the interaction and co-creation from F2F training with online tools – hence creating a virtual training space.

All of the concepts you learn can be used both F2F and online.
The design of this online training
Our facilitator training consist of two very intense and creative days with focus on the theory and research behind the method, effective hands-on exercises, group work, reflections and how you can use the methodology.
The training is composed of 2 modules.
Each participant will receive a special kit prior to the training. This includes all of the needed materials for the training (including LEGO®).
The price for the kit and distribution of it is included in the training fee.
Our training is targeted towards people who work with management, development, facilitation, processes, and/or consulting and are interested in obtaining basic knowledge of the LSP tool to be able to do general workshops face-to-face and online.
If you are already trained in the original LSP method, you are very welcome to join as well. Our Online Micro Certification is a great training that adds an online dimension to your LSP toolbox! As a trained facilitator you will only need to join day two of the training. To join the training as a trained facilitator – please contact Cecilie for more information!
2 full days of training.
Each module will be run in the time period 09.00 – 17.00 CET or 13.00 – 21.00 CET. The time period might be changed depending on which time zones the participants are in (ask us when you apply for a spot).

1: Introduction & warm-up
Participants are given reassurance in knowing why play works in a working context, the core elements, and the 5 simple steps. We do a few exercises to warm up our hands, brains, and stories to debunk any concerns about having to be a master builder and to get in flow from the start.
2. Model separately and put together
We set up a task to uncover the substance of the subject, e.g. the strategy, the team, the ability to innovate, etc. from different orientations – each participant builds their models, tells about them and then the group brings them together in shared models based on the instructions.
3: Ecosystem and factors
The ecosystem – e.g. the team, the company, the project, the strategy, or the ability to innovate – is created out of the shared models. To see what affects the systems and how, participants build both internal and external factors, e.g. stakeholders, team dynamics, trends, or other actors.
4: Correlations in the ecosystem
The factors are placed and connected to each other and to the parts of the shared models that they directly affect so that all the models create an ecosystem that embraces complexity internally and externally.
5. Condense conclusions & future actions
We identify conclusions, principles, and actions based on the knowledge we have about the ecosystem right now.
