Pete's LEGO® team building blog
It’s been a long and fascinating journey from playing with LEGO® bricks for the fun of it to using LEGO® bricks to make team work work. Not only have I learnt lots about how to use a medium like LEGO® bricks to make team work work, I have learnt as much about how people interact in order to make team work work. Everything I thought I knew everything about at university is under review because most of what I thought I knew I didn’t know. You know what I mean?
I’d like to share what I know so that you too are in a position to use LEGO® bricks in this way for your own purposes. My hope is to share my knowledge with you so that we can enter into a discussion and together take that knowledge and the skills to a higher level. I see the LEGO® SERIOUS FUN and the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodologies as work-in-progress. Together, through discussion and facilitating workshops, we can strive to know more and do a better job. I’d like to make team work work better!
There are distinct areas I wish to explore with you.
- The LEGO® SERIOUS FUN methodology
- The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology
- Using LEGO® bricks to make team work work.
- Facilitating the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodology.
If you can think of other areas we should explore please let me know. I look forward to taking the LEGO® SERIOUS FUN and the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® methodologies to greater heights with you.

Eddie Obeng says in his Ted Talk on Smart Failure for a Fast Changing World that around 15 years ago, everything changed. All the so-called rules about how to run a business or organization were deleted, and a new set of rules emerged. Obeng calls the time...
