Working Visually eCommunity

In 2015 I created a free forum and monthly drop-in webinar for grads of my various visual programs: Fundamentals of Working Visually, Magic Marker Retreat and Visual Coach Certification.

This has organically grown into The Working Visually eCommunity. Still free for my grads (see coupon below) and now also open to Visual Practitioners who have received visual skills training elsewhere or are self-taught.


Why An Ongoing Community?

After two decades of being a successful Visual Practitioner in all of the main roles (recorder, process leader of groups and process leader of individuals) and a teacher of over 2500+ fellow practitioners I have a lot of valuable experience in this niche field. As a coach and mentor, I like to see others succeed. And delight in holding a safe, pragmatic and egalitarian container in which you learn from your fellow global community members as much as me.

As my students will tell you, all of my Visual Skills Trainings are very robust … as such it helps to have an ongoing structure to integrate the depth of what I teach.

Start with the Basics Then Progress

Working Visually is SO MUCH more than doodling. Not that there is anything wrong with doodling (its great!) but doodling is only a part of a sophisticated blend of skills one needs to develop a successful practice … whether you are internal or external.

For visual skills one needs to learn to skillfully listen, synthesize, write, draw, color and format within the various genres of the work. There are also important people and business skills to master: identity, brand, offers, fees, contracts, marketing, sales and other client interactions. As well as deep inner work that often has to be tended to, in order to manifest the work and lifestyle you desire.

Supportive Feedback on Your Work

Celebration of Your Wins

 


And, We Help You With Your Important Inner Work Too:

I have another eCommunity for grads of my more right-brain programs: SHIFT-IT and Practical Energy Work. However here in the Working Visually eCommunity we often have to wrestle personal demons, bugaboos and negative energy to the ground too.

Particularly unhelpful beliefs about perfection, comparison-itis, denigration or elevation of the right-brain or left-brain (this work requires a beautiful balance of both), competition, scarcity thinking, money and selling.

This eCommunity is a safe and supportive place to be authentic in where you are in your visual journey. It’s a place to come together with like-minded and hearted practitioners to discuss what is honestly going on for you. Where your edge is. What you need help on. What you are curious about. Its access to people who get who you are and what you are doing whom you can bounce your work, ideas and problems off of and receive constructive feedback from. And a place to share your real feelings – good, bad and ugly. In order to help you process them so you can be the best Visual Practitioner you can be and do your own good work in the world.

What’s Included: Monthly Webinars, Video Library Plus 24/7 Forum

The Working Visually eCommunity includes monthly drop-in webinars, a Video Recording Library (of all past webinars since 2015 with summary notes of what is covered). Plus a Private Forum That is Available 24/7 for your browsing and communication.

The monthly drop-in webinars are 90-minutes and are usually scheduled on Thursdays. Webinars are spontaneous and not scripted. They begin with a short hello from each person in attendance and our agenda is then co-created from topics brought forward by members at that time (i.e. you come to the webinar with particular subjects or issues that you’d like my and the community’s assistance on or come to listen in on what your colleagues want to discuss).

Every webinar is recorded in case you want to watch it again or if you can’t join us live and want to watch later.

The companion private forum is available 24/7 and is divided into topic folders (see list of 13 folders below … more created depending on need).

Forum Discussion Folders:

These are the discussion folders that have emerged in our Private Online Forum since 2015. We use a system called NING to host our Forum. These discussion folders have emerged over time and work well for us. The folders are neatly organized and material within each folder is in chronological order (you can view all the various posts and replies that have occurred in the subject folders that are of most interest to you). New discussion folders are created as needed. Anyone can create a new discussion folder.
