Management is a cross-functional discipline that involves a myriad of roles, responsibilities and skillsets. Management capabilities are typically developed via on-the-job experiences supplemented with formal upskilling programs. Managers may find this process challenging, especially when the steep learning curve of management is often compounded with the real-time operational demands of an organisation. As a result, management competencies may not always develop as optimally as desired. This workshop distils the broad scope of management into six essential competencies that are universally applicable and will provide a strong foundation for the continuous self-development of any aspiring manager.
The Management Essentials using LegoⓇ Serious PlayⓇ program leverages on combining the strengths of an engaging gamified simulation and the versatile Lego® Serious Play® method to deliver a unique and interactive classroom experience.
The Lego® Serious Play® process is an internationally-renowned thinking, communicating and problem-solving tool, described as “3D-printing one’s thoughts”, and is ideally suited to represent the abstract concepts of management in a visual and tactile manner. Participants are guided through a series of hands-on exercises to build metaphorical models in response to questions from the facilitator and to reflect upon their models to extract deeper insights on the topic and reinforce learning objectives.
