Graphic Facilitation De-Mystified! Learn How to Work Visually with Groups & Individuals in This Powerful 3-Day Skills Workshop

Are you a coach, facilitator, trainer – or some other type of helping professional or process leader?  If so, you’ll want to add the super-charged power of working visually to your own skills toolkit!

Working visually with groups and individuals is known by many terms: graphic recording, graphic facilitation, visual thinking, visual synthesis, meeting graphics, group graphics, etc.  I’ve used these powerful foundational skills in my work for the last 17+ years as a successful strategic planning & visioning facilitator and in my cutting edge ‘graphic coaching’ practice as The SHIFT-IT Coach.


Not only are the visual skills crowd pleasing (clients love them, since 87% of them are visual thinkers!) but they are fun and personally gratifying to use too.

And, they make you stand out from the crowd (a valuable differentiator) that results in enhanced income and wider client range.

P.P.S. Sometimes people are really pulled to come to this workshop and don’t quite understand why (its not a rational decision but an intuitive one). Like my previous attendee Val, who wrote two and half months later to tell me she landed an Executive Director position at double her salary – by using ‘graphics’ to seal the deal (she used a graphic template to not only interview the Board that was interviewing her, but to engage the front line staff as well – which they loved!). Needless to say, she (and her loving but somewhat skeptical husband) were very happy with her return on investment and that she followed her intuition to come!
