|When it comes to getting things done on time, it’s not easy. It’s in our nature to wait until the last minute to do even the most important things like Christmas shopping or doing our taxes. And, there are many things in life we commit to, yet don’t follow through on such as: helping people move, paying bills on time or just walking the dog. We’re human, what can you expect?|
Graphic Facilitation can be used in meetings to capture a group’s ideas and information in pictures, words and colours. This type of meeting facilitation is well suited for strategic planning and visioning meetings, it helps cultivate big-picture thinking and allows a group to visually map out complex situations, identify problems and opportunities and helps attendees reach a shared vision upon which they can build their next steps. Research shows it has to do with the way our body uses imagery in its core processing.

I’ve seen John Ward do his magic with models and clay but this year at VizThink in San Jose the core message really sank in. It had to do with the way our body uses imagery in its core processing. It’s an understanding that is at the heart of why graphic facilitation works and how to deepen its impact.
John ran a session at VizThink titled “Kinesthetic Modeling: Visual Thinking in 3 Dimensions” along with fellow facilitators Regina Rowland, Nick Payne, and Julie Gieseke—all skilled graphic facilitators.
