It is all about helping your business think outside of the box and develop key strategies that tackle workplace challenges.  A LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® workshop helps to harness innovation and discover the untapped potential in your organisation.

In these workshops, LEGO® bricks are used to build models to express ideas through storytelling and metaphors.

Mara workshop using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method

In the fast pace world of professional sport, taking time to understand what makes a team and individuals tick and what is going to hold them together through the ups and downs in a season is critical.

Mara Consulting helped us break down barriers, set goals, give our younger players a voice they maybe didn’t realise they had and visualise our success both on and off the field.

I had my doubts about using LEGO in a workshop but it is a great tool for getting a team to work together. It was an extremely rewarding exercise for players and the coaching staff."
