Have you ever read a book that you loved so much you read it several times? A book that made such a positive impact you bought copies for friends and recommended it many times? For me, The Art of Possibility by Rosamund Stone Zander and Ben Zander is such a book. I included it in …
Stick figures help tie your notes to the human experience. They make it clearer how the ideas that you’re capturing relate to you and others.
They also help you to capture stories in a memorable way. Stick figures are characters in the snapshot story that you can tell in your notes. Add in a few more images of what your character is interacting with and soon you’ll have a visual anchor to the set of ideas you’re working with.
In stick figures we see ourself and we see others. Even in this simplified version, the drawing of human beings allows the viewer the opportunity to enter the story you’re telling because they can see themselves in it.
Essentially, that revolution is about two types of shifts. The first shift moves the outer place of learning from the classroom to the real world. The second shift moves the inner place of learning from the head to the heart, and from the heart to the hand.
Dave Wood's insight:
An inspiring article by Otto Scharmer (of Theory U fame) which includes supporting visuals as he describes a journey of radical decentralization (moving the classroom into the real-world context of learners) as well as a journey of deepening the learning cycle (head-heart-hand). Thought provoking and challenging if we're coaching teams or groups.
"So what is making? I’ve proposed that the heart of making is creating new and unique things. I also realize that in order for this type of making to occur, there needs to be some scaffolding so that maker learners can develop a foundation of knowledge and skills. The end result, though should be maker learners creating new things by and for themselves. The ideas in this post have been sparked by the SAMR model. I see a similar pattern or progression with maker education:"
Good advice for developing a coaching practice......... What will differentiate you? Incorporating visual processes through the use of templates developed by others is a good start. Then develop your own.

Based on Edgar Schien's definition: Culture is a pattern of shared tacit assumptions that was learned by a group as it solved its problems of external adaptation and internal integration, that has worked well enough to be considered valid and to be taught to new members as the correct way to perceive, think, and feel in relation to those problems.
I recently visited IdeaPaint headquarters in Boston to interview co-founder Jeff Avallon for our podcast, NibSqueak. When I stepped into IdeaPaint’s office space, I felt a rush of excitement. It was like being the first person on a ski run after a night of snow. As you might expect, IdeaPaint’s offices are decked out with wall to wall, floor to ceiling writable surfaces - as exhilarating in some ways as fresh powder. The day I was there, their collaboration walls were all white, gleaming and impossibly pristine, and ready for markers and minds at work or play.How does your physical environment shape your ability to think creatively, collaborate effectively, and drive action? In Episode 14 (available above), Jeff and I talk about the power of ubiquitous, accessible writing surfaces to liberate ideas big and small. Jeff explains how access to Idea Walls - and markers! - drives participation and engagement.Later in our episode, co-host John Colaruotolo and I describe a few graphic facilitation techniques made even better in environments with IdeaPaint.
