Lego Serious Play workshop at the Enterprise Center on Salem State University introduces a group of business owners, organization and education leaders, Gordon College students, and even some who are between jobs to a playful approach to solving business problems. As they build with the Lego blocks and spoke about their ideas, they tackled what it means to be an effective leader, to work together on a project, to share ideas and to be creative.

Playing with the iconic colorful Lego building blocks can help organizations solve complex problems by breaking down the rigid social conventions of the typical business meeting, said workshop facilitators Donna Denio, the principal of S&D Global Partners of Winchester, and Dieter Reuther, an operations consultant with Cast Collective of Boston.
