Entrepreneurs need Serious Play® too!
I had the pleasure of working with a small group of entrepreneurs earlier this week. What they had in common was a collaborative workspace; they're all coworkers at the B:Hive in Bridgeport, CT.
What set them apart were their businesses, all small, all relatively new, and all their own.I set out to help them reflect on their businesses and set some personal goals using LEGO® Serious Play®.
In our two hours together, they successfully thought with their hands, accessing what they knew to be in their subconscious minds, and build metaphorical representations of their thoughts and feelings as they pertained to their current business challenges. Through personal reflection and small group discussion, they played their way to discovery, insight and creative problem solving.
