Wellbeing, mental health and resilience are increasingly being recognized as important. Yet, many people don’t reflect on the how they can influence their wellbeing through practices and approaches.

Men, in particular, are characterized as avoiding conversations and reflection on their own wellbeing, hiding behind their work, or stereotypical phases such as ‘man up’.

This interactive session run by the Good Lad Initiative will give participants the chance to talk with one another about the links between masculinities and their wellbeing. We will then workshop pragmatic alternatives and skills for coping with stress and improving wellbeing.

Explore Your Wellbeing with LEGO new Thu 4 Jul 2019   10:30   [More dates...] [Full]

In this workshop you will explore what wellbeing means to you and how you could enhance yours. The workshop will use the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitation method to help explore complex topics.

Building with LEGO® bricks and using LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitation will make sure that you, and the others in the group, contribute equally and understand each other. It will stimulate your thinking, communication and, problem solving skills and create an environment with insight, confidence and commitment. Your possibilities for learning are enormous.

To get the most from the session the group will work together using the basic principles of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY®:
 1. Question – an issue and a suitable open question is identified
 2. Build – you make LEGO® brick models to answer the question from your own perspective
 3. Share – you all explain your model using it as a metaphor to answer the question
 4. Reflect – the group checks everyone’s understanding, and makes sense of the knowledge that has been unlocked. 100% of the participants are involved for 100% of the session unlike conventional workshops where 20% of the people do 80% of the talking and not everyone is engaged.

You will find the approach useful because:
 • We all have a unique perspective
 • Our brain works better in three dimensions
 • Playing in three dimensions lets us see more perspectives and have more ideas
 • Story-making and metaphors help you communicate more clearly

Last year, participants said • “Brilliant!” • “Super way to look at sharing ideas and encouraging me to think outside the box” • “This event was amazing. I was concerned…as someone who is not known for being creative…but Gez was a great facilitator and took us through a really good process of learning before setting us loose in full creativity mode! This was an amazing way to talk about some innate feelings within ourselves in a safe and constructive way and was really inspiring to see and hear others”
