Have you ever been trying to explain an idea to someone and not been able to get your concept across to them?
Have you then grabbed a piece of paper and drawn a quick picture to help them understand your thinking?
If so, you’ve already used a visual thinking technique!
Now think about how this visual approach used across your business could help improve communication and understanding in your organisation…
In my experience, a graphic recording always creates interest and discussion when created in real-time during an event. However, in many ways the real power of graphic recording is in its ability to stimulate discussion back in the workplace after the event. Sharing a visual record of your meeting allows everyone to clearly and easily ‘see’ what happened during your event (including those who weren’t there) and can create valuable organisational conversations and debates. #graphicrecording
Someone asked me the other day how Visual Thinking can really help organisations? Here are three ways in which I think Visual Thinking and a visual approach to sharing information can benefit a business:
- Communicating your thinking to colleagues quickly and effectively.
- Supporting ‘pitches’ and tenders for work by helping potential clients ‘see’ your thoughts and ideas.
- Communicating complex ideas to people who don’t have prior knowledge and understanding of a subject.
