benefits of working visually
why this workshop?
Successful meetings are well designed and facilitated, deliver great outcomes, and empower participants to move forward with clarity, tools and ideas to make meaningful change.
Graphic facilitation is the process of identifying, expressing, and moving ideas and conversations forward using visual tools, models, and methods. In a business world of growing complexity and challenges for our attention, there is an urgent need for clarity in our communication, identifying and expressing a clear and compelling vision as a leader, and having a broader range of tools for team engagement as a facilitator.
We will share with you our processes and methodology, real-life stories and “a-ha moments” from over 20 years experience in training, facilitation, and working visually. We will aspire to model everything that we have learned and use with clients to create a stimulating environment, and tangible learning outcomes using visual tools.
"Participated in the Visual Facilitation Lab and it brought so many new perspectives! It was a wonderful introduction to the world of visual language, connection and engagement, that can help me to engage with my team, connect with customers, and to visualize intended outcomes. Tim and Irene inspire with their love and service to the cause - and are super willing to help in any way they possibly can. I took the skills and the help they offered within a week of the course and it opened a completely new avenue of engagement for me, increasing my effectiveness tenfold! Thank you!"
