Using drawings to add insight
I never thought of myself an artist, but always felt that if I could show people the image in my head I could speak less and listen more. So I got over my embarrassement of not being able to draw, did a workshop (Bikablo) and fell in love!
Visualisation creates a shared understanding of concepts and topics as you bring images into the visible world and discuss the meaning. A picture can literally say more than a thousand words and invoke many emotions.
Personally, I use my limited skills to illustrate my writing, but they also come in handy for book reviews, meeting summaries and workshop facilitation.
