[Online Training] Working Visually with Groups and Individuals

FYI, the Online Version of our internationally acclaimed Fundamentals of Interactive-Visuals workshop starts in a week, Monday October 6th.

clip-fiv-interactivevisuals“Interactive-Visuals” is the umbrella term I use to sum up the four main ways of working visually with groups and individuals:

  1. Studio Work
  2. Graphic Recording
  3. Graphic Facilitation
  4. Graphic Coaching /Thera

Working visually is a POWERFUL method to boost your process work with groups and/or individuals. If you aren’t working at least somewhat visually with your clients you are missing out on an important and strategic professional edge — as up to 87% are Visual Thinkers.

  • Learn the historical story of the Interactive-Visuals field and what the four main applications are (so you can decide which suits you and your practice best);
  • Hear what the best supplies are and where to source them;

Clear Definitions

Basic Shapes & Movements


  • Receive icon libraries, visual resources and step-by-step directions on how to integrate visuals into your own practice (no matter where on the visual spectrum you fall .. no, you DO NOT need to be an artist to use Interactive-Visuals techniques);
  • Get precise, gentle, connect-the-dots instruction on how to ‘draw’ .. I sneak it up on you so get beyond any ‘art phobia’, fear or comparison problems you might have about your creative abilities (this work is really about PROCESS not art);

Reconnect with Your Creativity

Fun at the Wall

  • See varied examples and hear detailed explanations of real client work (culled from two decades of working nationally, internationally and digitally with corporate, not-for-profit, governmental and individual populations);
  • Practice your new skills and receive detailed feedback (the online experience enables us to create a real learning lab over 9 weeks … post your work and witness the work and feedback others receive too – very valuable!);

Practice Visual Facilitation

Meet Other Process Professionals

  • Receive supportive coaching on which steps to take to build or enhance your visual recording, visual facilitation and/or visual coaching career (I’ve successfully mentored hundreds of people from around the world and YOU CAN do this work too … just put one foot (or hand!) in front of the other!
  • Connect with individuals from diverse backgrounds and locations also interested in this visual niche — your global visual tribe! (private online forum where you virtually meet one another, upload your work, share tips, resources, etc).
