[Podcast] Unlocking Innovation with the Power of Play

Emerging World of Work Podcast - person building a wall with lego blocks

Creativity is in high demand in the workplace, both among front-line workers and leadership. But do our current ways of working support innovative, imaginative ideas? Johan Roos believes play nurtures the imagination, so you can put it to more productive use. Johan is the co-inventor of LEGO Serious Play, a methodology designed to enhance innovation and business performance through playtime. We ask him how he created the concept, how play helps leaders unlock their capacity to innovate, and why he feels it’s more useful than ever in our current business climate.
