We believe in the transformative power of play. We believe that work and play are not opposites; in fact they are mutually supportive. Play is vital for creativity, problem solving, and relationships.
Unfortunately modern business culture tells us that play is something to be left behind; something that is unproductive and frivolous. We believe exactly the opposite. At Constructive our mission is to bring the element of play back into the way we think about ourselves and our work, to uncover true meaning and insight in a complex and rapidly changing world.
Based in Shanghai, China, we offer facilitated workshops using the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® materials and methodology to enable teams to reach their full potential.
We work with teams to unlock the knowledge and insight inside of them. We believe that you know your business better than anyone and the best solution to any problem will come from your team.
We draw on extensive research in the fields of organisational psychology, education and business to guide participants in communicating with each other to share understandings, feelings, knowledge and experience.
Our lead facilitators are certified and experienced in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and able to bring years of varied expertise to the table....and to make things easy, they're both called Oliver.
Originally from Oxford in England, Oliver has spent the last eleven years in Seoul, Tokyo and Shanghai running projects for global leaders in engineering, IT and management consultancy.
Specialising in project management, business processes and business analysis, Oliver built a comprehensive understanding of people, teams and organisations in varied geographic and cultural environments, and the nature of business tools we use to support it all.
Oliver moved to Shanghai from the UK in 2007. He has been dreaming of building a career out of LEGO® from the age of six.
Since 2009 Oliver has worked with the Dipont group, bringing international curricula to mainland China, and then as a founding member of subsidiary company CRS Education, providing recruitment, training and consultancy services to a broad range of educational organisations in SE Asia and the middle east.
We deliver workshops to a broad range of organisations, from multi-national businesses to startups, NGOs and educational institutions. If there is a need for better dialogue, increased innovation and clearer strategy within your organisation, our certified facilitators can deliver bespoke workshops specifically suited to you.
