Ever been in a meeting, or working with a team and even though there’s a whole lot of discussion going on, people can’t seem to come to agreement or consensus? Or they just seem to be stuck and can’t move forward? One of the things that I do when this happens, is write – or even better – draw – out the main points on pieces of flip-chart paper. And the reason that I do this is that, as human beings, most of us rely most heavily on our sense of sight. When we actually ‘see’ what is being discussed, either in writing, or in a drawing, it helps us to better clarify what we do – and do not – understand and agree with. Since most people aren’t auditory processors, having a ‘visual’ of what’s being said helps people process better. As the old saying goes, “A picture’s worth a thousand words…”
