Are you ready for some fun? Do you wish you were armed with some skills to quickly capture everything you learned and experienced this week?
Science tells us our brains work in curious ways, and much of what we do is unspoken and unconscious. This can cause teams to stumble when they attempt to provide truly innovative solutions to customers. So how can we create a common vocabulary to unleash creativity and enroll people in the organization’s vision? That's a neat hypothesis, right? Let's put it to the test with a visual collaboration competition!
Our minds recognize images 60,000 times faster than words and often they illuminate our similarities and differences in a safe way. More of our brain is dedicated to processing them than all other senses combined. Yet when we are faced with complicated, strategic thinking - we rely on verbal language - which doesn't tap the full power of our minds, holding us back from our full potential to collaborate.
Using images helps communicate ideas with clarity, alignment, and engagement. Come to the workshop to learn how, even if you don't regularly draw! You'll leave with a set of skills that you can help brag about to your colleagues for months to come.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Practice visual thinking skills and develop a visual library
  • Demonstrate easy ways to become a whiteboard warrior
  • Draw a collection of visuals that they can use for future collaboration
  • Understand difference between pictograms and ideograms
  • Have tons of fun
