Part of leadership is casting a vision, a direction, or a goal.
Yearly company meetings, sales meetings, and gatherings give leaders the opportunity to verbally share their vision of the future. The Ted Talk route suggests polished Power Point slides to convey emotion and invoke reaction. We think there is a better way.
A Graphic Recording session can capture a leader’s emotions, fears, hopes and dreams live in a drawing in a way that allows meeting attendees to see the ebb and flow of a vision being cast.
An illustrated map of that conversation from start to finish is an extremely memorable and shareable document that allows employees and teammates to interact personally with a leader’s vision. Such a holistic view engages those in attendance to accept the vision- because it is ingested in one view, not over the course of 40 slides.
What works best in Sharing a Vision Visually
While ‘off the cuff’ works, learning, understanding and partnering with your leadership before an event can lead to exceptionally crafted visual metaphors to be re-drawn during a live speaking engagement.
