Welcome to Spiral by Design.

Love your work.


Complimentary LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® play and learn session in Oakville on Friday, April 27!

The difference between an average team and one that’s firing on all cylinders is night and day. One way to bridge that gap is with a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® team-building session. Strong teams outperform in the marketplace. Retention increases and churn decreases. Get better results from your team and get ready to starting seeing new solutions to your business challenges as you unlock your creativity using this innovative approach.

Our hands connect to 70-80% of our brain cells. When our hands are used in learning, a complicated process takes place that generates a powerful emotional charge – we’re able to express insights and ideas in greater detail, and they’re more easily understood and remembered.

In this hands-on session, you’ll experience the magic of a LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® session firsthand. This is a facilitated meeting where you’ll build models, share knowledge, and address a series of questions designed to create deeper and more meaningful communication, to understand ourselves and each other better.

Learn to think through your fingers and unleash your creative thinking! Contact me at darcy@spiralbydesign.ca for location and timing.

I want you to love your work. I help individuals and teams get more – from themselves and from each other. I’m a career & business coach and facilitator whose superpowers include ruthless efficiency – which makes me sound like a Monty Python sound bite – and a wicked sense of humour.


  • Career coaching: If you’re looking for somewhere new to hang your work hat, please get in touch. I’ve been where you are – and found my way. I will:

    – help you figure out what’s next for you

    – review your CV and your LinkedIn profile

    – even talk to you about – eek! – networking

  • Facilitation: Are you

    – realizing that 20% of your group is providing 80% of the contribution to your meetings?

    – wondering how to get 100% participation in your meetings?

    – missing out on some of the wisdom in the room?

    – looking for a team-building workshop that includes “hard fun”?

    I am a certified facilitator of LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method and materials. What does this mean for you? I can help you and your team go deeper quicker.

If you’re looking for options, when you’re ready to try something different, take a deep breath and call or email me. Let’s have a conversation about what’s possible.

Together we will sort out where you want to go, and the next steps to get there.
