Building Insights and Confidence for Career Development Professionals Using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®
This workshop is for individuals working in the career development field who wish to introduce the key pillars of play (safety, honesty, engagement and universality) to their work for the benefit of their clients’ outcomes as well as their own engagement in the process. Those supporting others in developing their careers cannot be truly authentic in their work if they have not reflected on their own career development process. Furthermore, as workplaces become more diverse, methods such as LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® – which utilize all of the elements of play in a meaningful way – become increasingly important as a means of including this diversity.
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn:
- The benefits of play to career counselling and the science behind LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®
- A pre-scripted “roadmap” for a short session in career development with clients using the LSP method
- Insights into your own career development process which will help you to be authentic and genuine in your work with clients
