I first interviewed my guest today, Dan Roam, about five years ago. He is the author of several books on the power of drawing; his latest is Draw to Win: A Crash Course on How to Lead, Sell, and Innovate with Your Visual Mind. It covers all sorts of things, from flying to dyslexia. The main takeaway is that drawing can be a useful everyday business tool to help you have more impact in the work you do — you can use drawing to sell more effectively, to train more effectively and to innovate more effectively.

The art of drawing your destination. Finding truth through drawing.
