Visual thinking is better thinking.

When you want to innovate, tackle a transition deliberately or create something that’s never been done before, you need your best and brightest ideas.

And your people have them. Let’s unearth and catalyze the ideas in the room and the genius of your team.

We are graphic facilitators. We have backgrounds in marketing, organizational development and business strategy, and we use visual thinking, creative facilitation skills and strategy to design and facilitate meetings so that your participants can think better and get better results.

We help you initiate rich, evocative, effective conversations about your visions and plans, and then we channel those ideas into powerfully vibrant visual maps that make your ideas real and help your team take action. This is how you launch your brilliant ideas into the world where they can make a difference.

 

To get a different result, you do it differently and think better.

Do you need to tackle a challenging transition deliberately?

Instead of being dragged through an upcoming organizational change kicking and screaming, let’s create a strategy and a plan to tackle it head on — so that you can turn it into an opportunity to THRIVE.

Are you creating something that’s never been done before?

When you’re striving to innovate or invent, you need fertile conditions for creativity to emerge and ideas to arise. This is our sweet spot. We excel in helping your team become visionaries, and then capture those ideas and visions and make them real, creating a visual road map so that you can move from ideation to execution easily.

Do you need to reformulate or reinvigorate your team?

If you aren’t deliberate about on-boarding new team members often the team can go sideways, losing focus, trust and momentum. We use a visual model to orient teams so that they gel quickly and everyone moves forward cohesively together.

Do you need to shake up a boring meeting?

Tired of death-by-powerpoint? Do you have the same boring meeting over and over because you don’t know how to do it differently? When you’re enduring, you’re not creating. We have proven creative processes we’ve used across hundreds of meetings that will get your group’s ideas flowing and participants engaged and excited.
