Have you recently fallen in love with Graphic Facilitation or Graphic Recording … or, has it been a while and you are finally ready to give it a go?
Do you use Graphic Facilitators and/or Graphic Recorders in your meetings? Or want to do this role yourself?
Did you know these effective visual methods also work really well in coaching, therapy and personal growth settings too?
These are the kinds of circumstances under which people usually find their way to me and my internationally recognized training The Fundamentals of Interactive-Visuals.
Hi, I’m Christina Merkley and I’ve got 20+ years experience in working visually across the FULL spectrum of applications: Studio Work, Graphic Recording, Graphic Facilitation and Graphic Coaching.
And rich experience across the full gamut of environments: Corporate, Not-for-Profit, Governmental, Small Business and Solopreneurs.
I’m VERY SKILLED at teaching these methods, no matter what level your artistic or process skills are it. I’ve taught leaders, managers, consultants, facilitators, trainers, authors, coaches, therapists, accountants, teachers, lawyers, analysts, artists, illustrators, designers, admin assistants, etc. And folks already operating as Graphic Facilitators and Graphic Recorders, either embedded in organizations or as freelancers.
Graphic Facilitation and Graphic Recording are excellent process methodologies, when EXECUTED PROPERLY. Yes, working visually is attractive … it’s calculated that 87% of the general population are Visual Thinkers. So most people (even engineers, techs and accountants!) are attracted to the color, shapes, lettering and icons/pictures in this method.
But please do not be fooled by some of the less than quality work floating around, now that working visually has finally become hip; this method ultimately isn’t about pretty pictures and doodles! When used properly it’s about CLEAR and DIRECT COMMUNICATION of information, ideas, thoughts and feelings. Something every leader and Process Professional needs more of in the course of her/his work.
