Visual Thinking

Thinking Made Visible


Workshops + Retreats, Facilitation, Visual Recording, and Consulting


Visual Thinking is the translation of words into pictures, using images as a language for communication, understanding, creativity and problem solving. Many organizations are beginning to realize this power of the co-created visuals to capture individual as well as group thinking, conversation, and strategy. The process of Visual Thinking also plays a critical role in Design Thinking, in which, ideation, brainstorming, and sketching bring innovation to even the most mundane tasks and challenges. This is evident today as we ponder the fact that most of the life-altering products that we use daily began as quickly sketched ideas in pencil on paper. Creative leaders recognize this and advocate for the process of thinking through drawing. As a result, visual leaders, visual teams and visual meetings are increasingly transforming how we convene.

NEW WorkshopS:

Lifemapping for Clarity, Creativity & Productivity
July 14th 2018 | 10-12pm @ The Range, 911 Whalley Avenue, New Haven, CT, 06515

Join Pattie Belle Hastings for a 2-hour immersion into mapping your life and mind through a writing and visualization process that she calls Lifemapping. This exercise is similar to a Brain Dump or Mind Sweep – where we will capture EVERYTHING that is on your mind right now, get it down on paper, and make it visual. Once everything is out in front of us, we can reflect on what the patterns and information reveal in order to move from this moment into the next with clarity and confidence. As you get the hang of this process, it can be done weekly, monthly, or whenever you are feeling overwhelmed by your life. We guarantee that you will be adding this technique to your productivity toolbox!
