“An idea that remains trapped in your head serves no purpose” #visualthinking #communicate

An idea that remains trapped in your head serves no purpose.

The above is rather a blunt statement – but is intrinsically true.

If you have a great idea but are not able to articulate it to others or implement it by yourself, then nothing will have been gained by having an idea that could have been the ‘next big thing’!

That’s why helping people find ways of unlocking their thinking and then sharing this with others is so critical to all organisations.

Unlock head

In my experience, helping people visualise their thinking through sketches, diagrams and doodles (either by encouraging them to do this themselves or capturing their thinking for them) helps them focus their thinking, experiment more freely with their ideas and find ways to more easily explain their ideas to others.

The creativity of the visualisation process adds a new dynamic and energy that cannot usually be achieved through simply talking about an idea.

So, why not get your teams to visualise their thinking at your next team meeting and see what great ideas can be released from your teams heads!
