    As we look for innovative ways to design training, how do we know that we are innovating and that we have the right solution? What justifies a solution going in the right direction? The real problem may not be evidently clear and when called upon to design training, we are often rushed into a solution without truly knowing where all the learning gaps reside or have a plan or a long-term strategy.

    A large part of designing a training solution is also managing stakeholder demand and expectations. Stakeholders may know what they want but not know how to express the desired outcome. Our perception of what we think a stakeholder may want may not be as clear. Ultimately, the resulting outcome may require redesign and redeveloment efforts.

    Avoiding every possible misconception is unlikely but how we manage those expectations can avoid misunderstandings. Designing a training solution where you can visualize the internal and external agents that could detract you or aid your efforts will help in implementing that solution.

    Whether you are a one-person team or part of a larger team, you may not have the time to consider a think through an innovative approach. The assumption is that you make time for fixing broken processes, rearranging schedules for unplanned requests, and more. What if there is an innovative way to visualize that strategy? What if there is a way to ask questions to explore the deeper understanding of a training solution?

    The LEGO® Serious Play® (LSP) methodology is a thinking, communication, and problem-solving set of techniques that provides an alternative model of learning and problem-solving when there is no obvious solution. The methodology is rooted in the learning theory of Constructionism and Constructivism with the notion we learn more with hands-on activities and through play. When we think with our hands, we enter what is known as a sense of Flow that helps with clearer insights, unlocks knowledge, builds confidence, and fosters a shared commitment among groups.

    You will have hard fun learning about the power of visual thinking through metaphorical storytelling, understand the value of a shared commitment, have more confidence in working through complex problems, and experience how the power of play unlocks creativity.

    In this session, you will:

    • Understand the fundamentals of visual thinking
    • Learn how to solve problems through metaphorical storytelling
    • Learn the value of a shared commitment among a group
    • Learn how to build confidence through creativity
    • Learn problem-solving techniques by listening to the LEGO brick!

    Recommended:

    Participants will have a much richer experience if they build along with their own LEGO brick. If you have your own, gather a small pile of random pieces. If you do not have your own LEGO, a small, recommended Classic LEGO kit that can be found on Amazon or most large retailers:

    <$10: Classic Brick & Ideas 11001 – 123 pieces

    $10-$15: Classic Creative Bricks – 221 pieces

    ATD Mid New Jersey is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series. This collaboration of 6 ATD chapters (including Eastern PA, Greater Philadelphia, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, Long Island & New York City) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content.  We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2021.

    We will explore unconscious attitudes that can manifest in people interactions in the work place, and the various triggers such race, gender, positional hierarchy, situational and environmental, to name a few.

    Being aware of their own implicit biases, helps leaders become more inclusive.

    We will practice how leaders can be mindful to recognize their own implicit biases and ways to remove them.

    A high level session outline follows:

    • Introductions
    • Recognize one’s own implicit bias triggers
    • Recognize situational responses and behavior modifications
    • Practice Breakout
    • Group De-Brief
    • Practice Breakout
    • Group De-brief
    • Wrap-up and Questions

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Identify one’s own implicit bias triggers and contextual variations
    • Recognize situational responses and behavior modifications
    • Raise awareness on approaches to overcome these biases

    Webinar Pre-Work:

    Participants are encouraged to take an Implicit Association Test (IAT) prior to the webinar. While there are many IAT tests available online, one suggested test offered by Harvard University can be found at the link below:
