team building with images and visual facilitation
Written on September 1, 2011 at 7:51 pm
Last week, The McCombs School of Business Development and External Relations Department and the University of Texas, held a Team Building Retreat. It was a blast to facilitate and engage this group.
In addition to graphic facilitation, we used images from VisualsSpeak to get each participant engaged. It is really cool to watch how the images draw the stories out of people. One of the biggest “Ah Has” that kept coming up last week, was perspective. As someone would see and tell a story about an image, others would realize how differently they saw the exact same image. The conversations around these perspectives bring clarity and a greater understand of communication styles and thinking patterns of teammates.
