What our clients say


Luzia Schuler, impact Hub Zürich

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Patrycja as our facilitator for our team workshop. Her skillful approach in gathering input from each team member prior to the workshop laid the foundation for a successful engagement. The integration of feedback into the workshop through the dynamic LEGO® Serious Play® methodology fostered an atmosphere of trust and open dialogue. Previously hidden assumptions were brought to light, clearing the path for a cohesive sense of purpose and an enhanced level of team synergy. Patrycja has a unique ability to genuinely connect on a personal level which added an extra layer of warmth and authenticity to the entire collaborative process. The result was not only boosted team morale but also a team that left feeling genuinely inspired and motivated.

Lisa Stähli, Esri Switzerland AG

Patrycja facilitated a Lego Serious Play workshop for our team of engineers with the goal to get hands-on experience with applying our design strategies and making decisions as a group. It was fantastic to see how building out solutions for tasks outside of our everyday work using Lego bricks allowed the team members to boost their own creative abilities and discover inventive and innovative approaches to problem solving. On top of that, the exercises brought out people’s different personalities in a very positive way and enabled us to identify each other’s strengths when it comes to decision making. Anna and Patrycja did an exceptional job in creating a safe environment and they inspired the whole team with their enthusiasm and positive energy. Thank you both for the smooth planning and creation of this custom workshop and for introducing us to the magical world of Lego.
