“The end-to-end process view through building, provided the team a visual method to showcase and share the end-to-end process and the improvements they implemented immediately.”
“I enjoyed watching 6 & 7 year old children selling their concepts and supporting each other.”
“Using Gail’s experience as a Prosci/ADKAR facilitator was one of the key steps we took to ensure success for this large scale change.”
“It was extremely important to use an unbiased external facilitator. We will use this type of session again.”
“We realized we hadn’t done a very good job in the past with change initiatives and we wanted this to be different. So we hired Gail to facilitate a change management session. The session was well received, the facilitation provided more collaborative input and outcomes.”
“We also found the passion around certain activities actually relieved the stress from others who didn’t enjoy those activities.”
I didn’t think my team would open up. They did and I was REALLY surprised by what they had to say. I thought the problems were different and much more difficult to solve. Boy was I wrong.
“The kids had such a great time building their town and getting to explain the purpose for each model.”
“The kids were articulate and excited to share their stories and reasons why the town should have a candy shop, new playgrounds, ice cream shop, and fun schools with the Mayor.”
“We utilized Gail’s expertise in the Prosci/ADKAR change management methodology as a great way to plan for the reorganization and the resistance we would face.”
"Thank you for inviting me to participate in "A Spa Day for the Sole: Rediscovering yourself through Play" workshop. The building challenges you gave us really helped everyone dig into their unique attributes, reflect on our best strengths, speak openly about our weaknesses, and express our future hopes and dreams in such a creative and inspiring way. "
I highly recommend Gail Kulas and Leading to Unlock, LLC for any organization or individual looking to improve communication, build strong leadership and teams, solve problems and unlocking potential.
“We had an extremely dysfunctional process. No one talked to each other, no one knew what the others were doing, and the formats of the information caused huge problems both upstream and downstream. Gail developed and facilitated a workshop using her Six Sigma and LEGO Serious Play background.”
“We are going through another organizational change, and people are fearful of losing their jobs and of the changes that will impact them of those who are losing their positions.”
We all walked into the session as strangers, but by the end of the session, we were able to build models describing each other! I've never gotten to know a group of people so quickly.
"Gail's experience in business development, process management and organization allows us to execute more effectively."
“I’m grateful for the support, delivery and wrap-up which was provided before, during and after the change management session.”
"As a female business owner and expert in the body armor industry, I want to spend my time growing my company. Leading to Unlock, LLC, provides strategic business services which augment my expertise and assists with strategy and business planning."
“Gail was instrumental in developing a project plan for the change and working closely with each of us to ensure we were communicating effectively and the appropriate level.”
Though I've done LEGO Serious Play workshops in the past, this session was the most personally and professionally gratifying, revealing and meaningful. I would definitely recommend it to others.
“Thank you for taking the time to give the children their voices and for inviting the Mayor to hear their ideas.”
“A great motivational experience.”
"Working together has made it possible to get the company, our whole team, turned around and pulling together."
“The facilitated session was designed with our outcome in mind.”
“The changes were easy to implement, reduced the aggravation and stress within the team.”
“Gail created a process workshop using bricks and storytelling to help uncover the roadblocks our team was experiencing.”
“Our team was able to improve their efficiency and effectiveness by 75% immediately following the workshop.”
I took over a new team and felt there were some underlying/unspoken challenges. I decided to use an LSP facilitator to help me with a team meeting. We spent a day together building our future team mission and values. The team said it was the best session they had attended and really helped gain the respect of each other in a non-threatening and fun way. Thank you.
“We were looking for a fun and interactive team building exercise. We heard about LSP and thought this might be a great way to have our new hires and experienced employees come together using a playful and interactive method.”
“The session allowed us to leave with a team charter and new respect for the experience and skills within the team, for both the new and existing employees.”
"Thank you for a great workshop! I've already distributed the Team Charter, it looks really good. We will use the materials you have provided. So excited to carry on the work we have begun."
I had a fantastic time at the "A SPA DAY FOR THE SOLE: REDISCOVERING YOURSELF THROUGH PLAY" workshop I attended yesterday! I now have living models of my hopes, dreams, goals, aspirations, strengths and weaknesses all build in LEGO Bricks!
