Why Work Visually?
Visual facilitation is a hallmark of our work. Twenty-five years ago, we began our individual practices and saw the potential of visual thinking for organizations and systems. A generation later, the field is exploding with creativity. Why? Because visual thinking is so powerful. Sometimes we think of it as a low-tech antidote to slide-deck presentations: people work together interactively to explore ideas, build connections between ideas, think holistically, and literally see the big picture.
We focus on fostering collaboration through skilled facilitation and deep listening skills. Listening builds trust which helps people work together to shape ideas and make decisions. We create visual frameworks and capture key ideas to help process those ideas more quickly. Our visual artifacts keep people on the same page and help move work forward. We provide digital versions of charts and generate visual reports to share the work with participants and other stakeholders.
In our practice, Illustrations never take priority over the integrity of the group's conversations. We provide color and clarity while keeping our visualization in the background so our clients' content can stay in the foreground.
If you want big-picture thinking, use a big picture
A study by the Wharton School of Business on the effectiveness of visual language showed that visual language improves decision-making, makes a better impression, shortens meetings by 24%, and promotes group consensus.
