While conversing with our customers recently, an interesting insight came to the fore. A lot of callers had gone for the latest blockbuster to hit the screens – The Lego Movie. This flick is so good that it has managed to hold on to the box office top spot for 3 weeks in succession. So this got us thinking. What makes this toy movie so special? And what are the lessons that can be learnt from it? We have highlighted them below:
1. Add an emotional connection to whatever you do: The Lego Movie tugged at our heartstrings through effective storytelling. There were effective lessons to be learnt as well, especially towards the end when most people in the audience became emotional.
We won’t reveal the ending in case you haven’t seen the movie yet.
2. Everything is AWESOME!: The song featured in the movie It’s the perfect anthem for team unity!
Here are the first few lines from the song:
Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you’re part of a team
Everything is awesome, when we’re living our dream
Everything is better when we stick together
Side by side, you and I gonna win forever, let’s party forever
We’re the same, I’m like you, you’re like me, we’re all working in harmony
What better way to drive home the importance of team unity than an infectious song?
3. Never ignore the importance of training: In the movie, the Master Builders are hugely creative and mighty good at what they do. But as seen in the movie they need a lesson or two in cooperation and role play in teams. Similarly, there may be talent in your organization who are in need of training in a certain aspect to boost their careers. Don’t hesitate to provide them with the boost they deserve.
4. There is no limit to one’s capability: The movie’s main protagonist is Emmet Brickowski who gets wrongly proclaimed as the “special one”. High hopes are placed on his shoulders in the battle against evil Lord Business. And after several trials and tribulations, Emmet comes out triumphant.
