Certification training with Per Kristiansen
I am interested in becoming a certified facilitator with the co-author of the method
Is that for me?
- Yes, if you’re searching for a new method of expression and sharing ideas in your company.
- If you are tired with 80/20 type of meetings (20% of people are talking and dominating conversations and 80% just sit and listen).
- Instead of traditional slides, you can easily pick a brick.
- Yes, if your style of conversation with people is directed into empowerment, playing well and staying positive. I love delivering trainings in companies in which openness and good intensions are flying between the walls. Real time strategizing needs a certain space of spontaneity 🙂
- Yes, if you know the group is less than 14 people.
- Yes, when you are a people person who uses each opportunity to talk to people and you are bold enough to bring bricks to the serious business 🙂
- No, if you are not experienced in working with people and you’re searching for brilliant colorful ideas that sell your services.
LSP is a method without a content. To make the magic happen and generate valuable insights about the business you need to create the atmosphere of:
- Presence and mindfulness
- Connecting ideas with the business needs
- Ensuring emotional safety among participants – ‘Everybody builds, everybody shares’ principle is contracted during the workshop and you as a facilitator are responsible for framing the way of conversation.
Experience of being a manager or trainer and acknowledging group process and understanding of mechanism of reactions is crucial and they don’t come attached to your LSP facilitator set 🙂
- No, when your corporate style is command & control… well… four hours with colorful bricks in employees’ hands won’t help a lot and you’re risking feedback of ‘childish’ instead of ‘playful’ climate of workplace.
- No, working with larger group may be difficult when it comes to amount of bricks you receive in your facilitator set and general human attitude to facilitate so many conversations.
Of course, finding a co-facilitator is not a problem and facilitating seminars for 40 people is also a part of my favorite games… but this is a different learning experience.
- No, if your style of working is based on ‘hiding’ behind data, model, slides or well-structured process.
Why is it worth to get certified?
Apart from an engaging method of communication you will join Facilitators Community with invitation to take part in annual conference (usually in Billund) and share your experience with other facilitators.
This is a community that shares knowledge
If you feel you need a supervision, you can easily contact people in the network.
Btw. being a copycat is an easy option. Bricks are available at LEGO® store but… can you use them right?
Why is it worth to get certified with Per?
There are two co-authors of the method and the book: Per Kristiansen and Robert Rasmussen. I truly appreciate the knowledge of other Master Facilitators and I would be a great honor to work with them on the projects.
The profile of my and Magda Dobrowolska-Sagan’s consulting experience and business projects is closer to Per’s experience and that is why we asked Per to come to Warsaw in October.
And he agreed!
If you are interested in internal certification training, please, contact me and we will find a Master Trainer whose energy fits your company culture.
I am an Internal Trainer. How can I use LSP?
Sure, I can talk about various cases that people first experienced the method as participants, then started co-facilitating sessions in a role of co-facilitator and finally, decided to get certified.
My best experience is when people from HR departments are co-facilitating sessions and the preparation training to this role helps me understanding the business needs and expectations better.When LSP starts being associated with the employees (instead of an external training company), you have a chance to bring a new language of leadership to your company and embed the LSP frameworks into the models, solutions and tools you already use.
The moments that people start referring to Extended DISC, SDI or Insight Discovery results bring a smile to facilitator’s face 🙂
Is it allowed to mix LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®? with other methods?
It depends 🙂 I combine SCRUM techniques, academic models, Business Model Canvas, Design Thinking…
Before we start discussing the tools and size of bricks :), please, explain me why / what for you need other tools?
