Exploring and Implementing Visual Thinking with XPLANE – September 11, 2019

Exploring and Implementing Visual Thinking with XPLANE – September 11, 2019

Visual Thinking is a powerful skill that taps into our deepest biological capability for understanding. It enhances our ability to develop new ideas and designs, communicate those ideas effectively, and collaborate with others to make them real.

Visual Thinking uses tools – pen and paper, index cards, sticky notes, etc. – to externalize internal thinking processes, making them more clear, explicit, and actionable. It’s a way to collaborate, co-create, and ideate much more effectively with an engagement (meetings, one-on-ones, workshops, etc.)

Throughout the evening Marvin Gaviola will show you how to:

  • Use the visual alphabet
  • Get a better understanding of the value of Visual Thinking
  • Use Visual Thinking within an engagement – a skill you can immediately put to use in your organization
