Think Visually and Amplify the Impact of Your Ideas, With Wendi Pillars

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on May 19, 2022

If a picture is worth a thousand words, why do so many of us insist on a thousand words alone?

Whether you’re in a more traditional school setting or a place of business, your organization can use visual thinking to drive collective understandings and engagement. Studies show that information is recalled exponentially more when paired with visuals than without them . . . and to actually generate those visuals along with their connections?

Visuals add unparalleled value to your organization’s thinking, planning, and review processes. They naturally facilitate engagement, enhance information retention, and grant permission for creativity.  When your audience is engaged and remembers more, they’ll be ready to take action.

Wendi Pillars loves empowering others through visuals. So much so in fact, that she started her own company to help you tap into your creativity.

Wendi and Adam discuss:

  • If a picture is worth a thousand words, why so many of us insist on a thousand words alone
  • “Use stick figures for a cognitive push to make your “brain hurt”, no matter who you are”
  • Energy management vs time management in bringing a vision to life
  • Why visual thinking and strategizing isn’t just about drawing pictures
  • And much more!

When you sketch more, you think more.

When you think more, you connect more dots.

And when you connect more dots, you accomplish more.

My markers are ready. Are yours?
