Do you think in words or pictures, or both? Visual thinking engages the part of the brain that handles visual processing, and is said to be both “emotional and creative” so you can “organise information in an intuitive and simultaneous way”.
A picture really might be worth a thousand words, while being easier to understand and recall. Therefore it is worth exploring how visual thinking can help you communicate ideas to colleagues and clients.
I have collated a few presentations to help you do exactly that. These will help you to understand the benefits of visual thinking, and there – obviously – lots of useful visualisations to aid you.
