Our next workshop:

Creating Clarity with Visual Thinking

A picture is worth a thousand words, bringing focus and energy to discussions. Oftentimes, meetings are a sea of words and a waterfall of slides. Make your meetings more engaging, make concepts and ideas more memorable and lead teams or projects toward their goals.

With two interactive learning days, you will capture key ideas and organize them in a visual format —using text and drawings—to support building common meaning in meetings, training sessions or strategic off-sites.

What will you learn?

  • Discover the primary elements of the visual language

  • Discover the easy ways the Bikablo® method provides to draw people, roles, groups, and situations
  • Use simple and fast options to color elements and spaces to support the graphic structure
