Recently, DSS had a Lego® simulation training which helped participants from each team get to know each other better and build stronger relationships within their teams. This incredibly beneficial experience helped us find creative solutions to some of our most significant challenges and thus grow personally and professionally.
How It Works
The Lego® simulation training typically involves two or more groups working together to build something from scratch using only Lego® bricks and elements. A dedicated Lego® trainer gives specific building tasks, and each group has the freedom to create whatever they see fit. The catch is that the teams aren’t allowed to communicate with each other directly; they can only communicate through the Legos® themselves. This exercise is used to simulate various business scenarios, such as developing a product or handling a customer service issue. The benefits of this type of training include promoting teamwork, improving problem-solving skills, and boosting creativity. This forces participants to really think about what they are doing and to cooperate with others in order to achieve the desired outcome.
Improved Communication Skills
One of the benefits that we’ve gained from this Lego® simulation training was the improvement of our communication skills. We were able to learn how to clearly express ourselves in both verbal and non-verbal communication in order to get tasks done more efficiently. Furthermore, we’ve challenged ourselves to listen to each other better and to consider different perspectives for the sake of finding a compromise that would work for everyone.
Another great benefit of this training was our enhanced creativity. We were pushed to think outside the box and develop innovative solutions to everyday problems. By unleashing creative thinking, we can find more productive ways of doing things and come up with original ideas that will make our services more attractive.
Last but not least, this activity helped strengthen the bonds within our team. We got to know each other better and understood each other’s strengths and weaknesses. This new knowledge provided us with the ability to deliver consistent, near-to-perfect performance simply by using our member’s innate talents. It improved our cooperation immensely and opened new work opportunities.
Overall, The Lego® simulation training was definitely one of this year’s highlights for the DSS team. We learned how to communicate better with each other, be more creative, and strengthen the bonds within our team, and of course, we had a lot of fun doing it!
