If Da Vinci had a Website

If Da Vinci had a Website | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it
The idea of specialisation or niching is a prevalent one. The argument goes
that by focusing on one market or one expertise you focus your efforts and
get more done. I reckon it's an easy idea to swallow. Who hasn't felt
diffused at some point, distracted by multiple angles and overwhelmed by
many projects? The thing is I am not sure it's right for everyone. It's
convenient and functionally smart in a business, but I don't think it's
what genius does. And I think that the only competitive advantage we have
in the developed world against the massive flow of people coming down the
line from Brazil, Russia, India and China is to work in our genius.

So here is an old new idea. Be a renaissance man or woman, be more like Da
Vinci and less like Henry Ford

How to Coach Like a Leader … Even (Especially) When You’re a Skeptic | Box of Crayons | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it
You know who you are. You’ve been hearing about coaching (or mentoring, its first cousin once removed) for years now and thought, “Yeah, yeah … that’s for those HR / ‘people people’ types, not me. I’ve got a real job to do.” Or perhaps you’ve figured out how to do pseudo-coaching. You don’t tell people what to do directly, just cunningly ask, “Have you thought of …?” (Which is not so much a question as it is advice with a question mark at the end.) Or perhaps you’re just too busy. You’re certain coaching and mentoring takes too much time, and as much as you’d like to sit down for a nice chat with everyone, you’re already overcommitted and overwhelmed. There’s no room for anything extra. There’s Good Reason to Be Skeptical ... As our world has become more complex and more millennial-y, coaching’s importance to successful teams and organizations has only grown. I’m certain that if you work in an organization of any size greater than one, you’ve been encouraged to coach those you manage

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Wash, Rinse, Repeat | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it
A vision map can serve as a powerful tool for stakeholder engagement and
buy in.

Schedule a working session to review the vision map with a small selection
of your key stakeholders. Prepare by printing the latest version of the
vision map on 11x17 placemat-sized paper, one for each participant, and a
single wall-sized version. Introduce the vision map to the group by saying,
"A few of us got together and sketched out some ideas. This is the way we
see it. We're not saying it's the only way to look at this, but it's what
we came up with, and we're sharing it with you to hear what you think about
it."

Resist the temptation to present it as a well-polished, complete
deliverable. Most of your stakeholders will be seeing this for the first
time, and they will feel intimidated and pressured to provide insightful
feedback in a few minutes while others have had hours or days refining
their ideas. This isn’t the time to impress your stakeholders by how much
time and thought you’ve put into the project, or how much knowledge and
experience you bring to it, or what creative solutions you’ve thought of.
Be authentic as you ask for their help and insight.  

Give a very brief walkthrough of the vision map, but don’t read every
detail. Cover only the high-level themes. Then say, “It’s important for me
to hear your feedback and get your ideas. And because you read a lot faster
than I talk, I’m going to be quiet for the next five minutes and let you
explore the visual on your own. Take notes. Mark it up. Then, we’ll go
around the room, and I’ll capture your input and edits.”

After your stakeholders have time to read, solicit their feedback. You
could choose a structured model for feedback, such as I Like I Wish What If
, or One Breath Feedback, or One Word Feedback, but it’s best to have an
open, facilitated discussion. Make sure every participant is given air time
to avoid spending too much time on one aspect of the vision map. Capture
the feedback using a combination of graphic recording and direct edits on a
version of the vision map large enough for everyone in the room to see.
Have a note-taker on hand to capture the discussions between stakeholders.
These notes can serve as raw material for more detailed content for the
vision map.

Remind yourself that the feedback your stakeholders share is coming from
the perspective of their fresh eyes. You have been in the thick of
designing and refining the vision map, and it’s easy to lose perspective
while working the details. Trust that what you hear is the honest opinion
of those who are sharing it.

Thank your stakeholders for their feedback. At all costs, resist the urge
to explain or defend. Just make note of what you hear. After the feedback
session, meet with your core design team and discuss what you captured,
point by point. THIS is the time to go into detail. Decide among yourselves
how to incorporate the feedback you received. This may be in the form of
edits to the vision map, or in depth discussions with the individual who
offered the feedback to better understand their perspective, or in the
scope of the vision map overall.

When the next version of the vision map is ready, invite a larger selection
of your stakeholders to another feedback session, as well as the original
group. They’ll see that their voices were heard, as they see their words
reflected in the next version of the vision map. As they see themselves as
helping to shape the vision for the future, they’ll be more engaged in the
changes to come.

Wash, rinse, and repeat the process.

Dan Roam Draws His Way to the Truth | Box of Crayons

Dan Roam Draws His Way to the Truth | Box of Crayons | Graphic Coaching | Scoop.it

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. I think you'll enjoy this interview, as we dig into: How drawing can be a powerful tool to map out your thinking. The intricacies of the brain. Why you should draw your vision statement. The art of drawing your destination. Finding truth through drawing.

Dave Wood's insight:
There are some inspiring gems about visual thinking in this transcript of an interview with Dan Roam. Key messages include: its not about drawing, its about mapping out your thinking. You can always follow the link to the podcast if you'd rather listen than read.
