Team and Business Process

Get buy-in from your whole team to a shared objective: stop with the top-down meetings!

COVID and working from home have affected most organisations – sometimes only a little, and sometimes in a profound and fundamentally transformative way. Teams have had to operate alongside each other, disconnected, instead of as an integrated whole.

  • Is your team having to adapt to hybrid working?
  • How does everyone feel if you are all collocated again?
  • Has your team identity, its composition, its performance, been affected?
  • What can you do about it?
  • Are there new opportunities you can seize?

Systemlevel’s RECONNECT workshop is like a 1-day spa visit for your team’s spirit guide.

Team Performance and Problem Solving

Ed has been a certified facilitator of Lego(R) Serious Play(R) for over 5 years and worked with all kinds of organisations. LEGO SERIOUS PLAY is a facilitation methodology developed at The Lego Group around 2010, and adopted gradually globally to address a huge range of topics. We design every workshop for the client, to address their specific goals.

Workshops guarantee results, and ensure participation – almost the opposite of a typical meeting. Research shows that this kind of hands-on, minds-on learning produces a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the world and its possibilities. All LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® interventions are built around the following core framework:

  1. Ask a question
  2. Build a response using LEGO®, and give it meaning
  3. Share the story of your model
  4. Ask questions, reflect and uncover insights

This cycle repeats through a series of questions designed by the facilitator, with Step 2 changing between individual responses and group responses spanning 7 build techniques.

The dialogue around models is impersonal (it’s only bricks), and its impossible to be wrong.

Get in touch to discuss putting a step-change in your team performance.

Serious Play Taster Sessions

It is hard to convey the value and experience of SeriousPlay(R) in words, on a website.

To help, we offer short taster sessions that will develop the core skills for SeriousPlay and let you understand how it works, but are not customised to your needs.

Process Mapping – Five Whys

Sometimes it is useful to have your established ways of achieving tasks critiqued by a neutral party. Even if you think you are ultra-slick, everyone operates with a framework of assumptions and the baggage of an evolved process influenced by potentially many people.

Our favourite ways to unpick processes and bring time- or cost-saving innovations is Toyota’s ‘Five Whys’, a clean way to approach root-cause analysis.

Who Will Benefit

Any team that wants to be more effective in how they work together, and how they relate to the rest of their own organisation – or beyond, how they relate to their customers – can uncover insights through a Systemlevel Workshop.

The normal maximum number of participants in a workshop is 10, so that we retain energy and focus. If your needs are very different to that, we can provide multiple facilitators.

Participants – an immersive programme without digital distractions that will leave you understanding your organisation and liking your colleagues more. It will also be fun. 

Teams – gain effective communications, empathy and a clear understanding of what your team stands for and why it matters that you are in it. 

Management – identify and resolve thorny issues with your teams, uncover training needs or potential future problems, build strategies that everyone is committed to and owns. People who co-create ideas and strategies will defend them even if you aren’t there telling them what it is.
