Leadership Lessons From LEGO by Ken Perlman at Forbes on 24 September 2013

Can leadership be child’s play?  In this article, the author constructs several leadership lessons that he gleaned from playing LEGOs with his daughters:

  • Start with what success looks like (the box provides your vision of the desired end state)
  • Consider interchangeable parts (what lessons learned can we draw from)
  • Instructions are only so helpful (the path to success does not come with a comprehensive checklist)
  • It’s more fun when people are working together (get your team involved)
  • The quality of the final product relies upon the input of the imagination (be flexible in modifying your product, especially if you come across a better idea along the way)
