Why LEGO Serious Play?

We explore the world around us with our eyes and hands but, only one of these makes it possible for us to see in the dark. According to research we can unlock hidden knowledge and make new connections using our hands to build LEGO models.


Playing with LEGO is fun

But fun alone won’t necessarily produce useful results. At SHFT Happens we introduced LEGO Serious Play (LSP) to bring play to Emotional Intelligence. 

Unbeatable communication: visual, auditory and kinesthetic

Connect mind and hands, conscious and unconscious

Develop shared meaning in teams

Express yourself and let your thoughts take shape in 3d


LSP was developed in 2000s by LEGO’s Education division and IMD Business School. Based on insights from neuroscience, today LSP is a proven methodology used for strategic decision-making and problem resolution in business environments. The workshop results are always directly aligned to concrete business and personal developement goals and can be directly applied in your life or work.

What you'll learn


01 Analysis

At SHFT Happens, our mission is to set the standard within our industry and to provide you with the best, most effective programs. Using the world's most robust, scientifically-validated assessment as part of our offering, allows us to truly live up to these core principles. In fact, the data that we can deliver in these reports is so far beyond what is available in the market today that we prefer to talk about this part in terms of providing a new experience rather than a module.

Psychometric assessments primarily typify people, but when it comes to changing behaviors, knowing your personality type or color is not enough. An instrument that measures behaviors is required. At SHFT Happens, we use Baron’s EQ-i 2.0 because it is the first scientifically and medically validated tool, grounded in over 20 years of research. It is also the only instrument currently used in forensics. 

As Henry Thompson, Ph.D., CEO of High Performing Systems, points out, “Emotional Intelligence is situationally specific. By this I mean that overall EI is a good general predictor of success, but the more powerful predictor is the specific combination of EI
components for a specific type of job. This is what determines success.”

Success profiles let us know which development areas to focus on in training and development. One benefit of using the EQ-i 2.0 is that return on investment (ROI) can be measured and tested against the success profile. As a result, put our money where our mouth is with respect to the effectiveness of our training.


02 Confidence

From confidence to self awareness, in this round we will focus on developing the "Self", or "I" part of your EQ. You can expect to get to know your personal strengths and limitations, develop self respect, and find purpose and enjoyment in your work, performing to your fullest potential.

03 Self-Expression

Picture a line between passive and aggressive. At the middle point of this line lies assertiveness, a place where you work with others by finding the right words at the right time to express your feelings and thoughts. From decision-making, planning, and completing daily tasks autonomously in this part we play to develop your authentic voice and effective self-expression.
