I spent yesterday running a Scribble Lab session with the Interflora senior leadership team helping them being to develop their visual thinking skills – in particular their drawing and graphic recording techniques.
It was great to see the team really engage with the workshop and commit to using the tools and techniques learnt during the Scribble Lab session to help visualise, explore, clarify and communicate both their own and their teams thinking.
Getting people and teams to communicate effectively is one of the key challenges facing organisations of all shapes and sizes.
We here at Crackerjack Visual Thinking believe that helping people to feel confident and empowered to use sketches, diagrams and drawings to communicate thoughts and ideas can create a significant cultural change in an organisation.
We have witnessed people having numerous ‘lightbulb’ moments which were only possible because information and ideas were shared visually (rather than the more traditional formats for sharing information including reports, bullet-point presentations etc).
That’s why we are passionate about helping people develop their drawing skills and offer a number of training workshops which we call ‘Scribble Labs™‘.
Scribble Lab™ 1: Get Scribbling! is ideal for those people wanting to develop their drawing skills. We can offer this as a standalone 1 day workshop or can tailor it to your teams specific needs. Ideal as part of a team development activity.
We also offer a 1:1 coaching option if that better suits your needs.

Whilst we’ve been able to fit a few holidays in over the summer, we’ve also been busy supporting clients in a number of different ways. Whilst we can’t yet reveal everything we’ve been doing (client confidentiality, hence the blurred images below!), we can tell that we’ve doing lots including:
Creating a new interactive toolkit to help managers improve quality and care at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. The toolkit is due to be launched in the next few days.
Graphic recording for number of clients including Northumbrian Water, National Trust and Oxford University Hospitals.
Delivering our first 1:1 Scribble Lab coaching programme for a client at EVHR Consulting.
Creating a rich picture detailing Solent NHS Trusts new strategic direction.
We’ll be revealing more details on this work over the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, why not visit www.crackerjackvisualthinking.com to find out more about our work. Alternatively, feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements in more detail.
Here’s some great feedback Crackerjack received from Sian Lloyd at EV HR Consultingfollowing on from the first ever 1:1 Scribble Lab coaching session we ran for her:
“John’s graphic recording coaching is not only extremely valuable but also hugely enjoyable. My individual Scribble Lab session had been carefully planned to build on my abilities and with a clear direction of the goals I had said I wanted to achieve. Having this one to one attention from someone so experienced enabled me to move through my learning quickly and find answers to my many questions. A very inspiring day!”
This initial session helped Sian develop her drawing and page layout skills and will be followed up by four 1 hour on-line coaching sessions to help her develop her graphic recording technique.

The team is keen to incorporate visual thinking approaches into their work and the workshop helped them begin to develop the core drawing skills needed to do this.
Developing these core drawing skills will enable them to feel confident in creating images to communicate information and drive conversation during the design and delivery phases of their work across multiple learning channels.
At the end of the session, the session participants were all able to identify immediate ways in which they could incorporate the skills learnt during the Scribble Lab™ into their current and future work.
