Visual Thinking for Problem-Solving can be done with the simplest of visual tools: diagrams. This online workshop demonstrates a framework of five diagrams that can take you from brainstorming to planning a course of action. These diagrams work for group facilitation or one-to-one coaching, from strategy sessions to personal development planning. Facilitators who worry about their graphic skills can use the power of diagramming to create strong visual models that supports their work, while graphic recorders who want to organize fast flows of content can help tame the stream with one or more of these visual tools.
