Start: get ready to paint

About a year ago, I attended a business meeting, which proved to me (literally in one day) that all my thoughts regarding the possibilities of pictures are absolutely true. This meeting not only perfectly illustrated the idea of ​​how useful it is to think about business when using pictures, but also that pictures could provide (which did not happen) a different result.
Last summer, executives of a large financial company - let's call it AmericanWay Financial * - invited me to hold a seminar on visual thinking as part of the annual meeting of leaders. AmericanWay just completed the next fiscal year with a record result, and the board of directors wanted to take advantage of the accumulated positive energy and conduct classes that could push employees into new thinking. The Executive Committee found my idea of ​​solving problems using pictures quite interesting, and I gladly accepted the invitation.

* This is not a real name. All the stories in the book are true, but some companies have asked me not to mention their names. I used the original names only with the permission of the companies. Hereinafter, except in certain cases - Notes of the author.

I was anticipating the beginning of the seminar: financial managers tend to believe only one type of pictures (stock price fluctuation graphs), so I had the opportunity to show a skeptical audience how to use different types of simple pictures to solve problems. And I myself had an excellent reason to learn more about the internal mechanisms of work of a huge financial company.

Start: get ready to paint

  1. Your turn to draw cards

  2. So when are we going to draw pictures?
    You may have noticed that we have already walked several times using the SQVID model, but have not yet drawn anything. This is normal: the meaning of the SQVID work in half is to make us think about visual options. The exercise we have just completed has switched so many gears in the eyes of our thinking and has involved so many neurons that we are more than ready to offer
  3. How can we draw “human” pictures for business?
    So, getting closer to the end of our seminar, let's talk about what is never discussed at business meetings. Throw out your presentation pages with clearly marked and boring lists of questions and show hand-drawn pictures instead. And even better - draw these pictures right at the meeting. Forward! Meetings and meetings should not be predictably boring *! * Say it
  4. Start
    Down and Out trouble started. Saying Here is a typical example of a mediocre start that brings a yawn: “Today (of course, not yesterday), I (of course, not Mama Horse) will say (of course, not bleat) to you (of course, not horses) about ... Finally, the theme sounds no longer needed by anyone. Did you hear that? Began to get comfortable to sleep? .. So how do you start? For example, the report on marriage and family. You
  5. Drawings to solve business problems: how to draw?
    It is much more important to take the first step and at least draw something on the sheet than to think long and hard about it. You can start with a circle, and then assign a name to it. Even minimal visualization animates objects and makes them more memorable. “Who / what” portrait • The simpler the better - wire the idea. • Revive lists of thumbnails. • Add a title, names and titles to
  6. Beginning of the program
    My purification program, which is easily integrated into everyday life, provides for the implementation of five important functions. 1. Reducing the load on the digestive system. Even if you do not feel it, the daily small decrease in the body's energy reserves due to its consumption of allergic reactions every day contributes to the feeling of dullness in many people. Reduction
    IR can be started when the cannulas are correctly installed and fixed, the ABC exceeds the critical level and the perfusiologist is ready for operation. The clips from the cannula (applied during installation) are removed (first from the venous and then from the arterial), after which the main AIC pump is started. It is very important to ensure adequate blood return to the venous reservoir. Normally, the blood level in the reservoir rises, and
  8. The beginning of the development of language and speech
    Although in infancy, children do not speak, it is during this period that its foundations are laid. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the child's speech development. Language is the most important means of communication between the child and the people around him. Language is the leading factor in the mental development of a child. Language is an effective tool for socializing a child, becoming a personality, and expressing its individuality.
  9. Begin a systematic study of child development
    The first concepts of the mental development of children arose under the influence of the law of evolution of C. Darwin and the so-called biogenetic law2. Biogenetic law, formulated in the XIX century. biologists E. Haeckel and F. Muller, based on the principle of recapitulation (repeatability).

  13. Breastfeeding: the onset, duration, and practice of exclusive breastfeeding
    Due to the lack of comprehensive and comparable data and unified international definitions, it is difficult to make any general statements about the prevalence of breastfeeding in the WHO European Region. Data on the percentage of children who are breastfed are shown in Fig. 8, taken from various sources (27). These data must be approached carefully: survey methods
  14. Black, yellow or red: what color is your pen?
    During several hundred business meetings, I conducted a survey on how people approach visual problem solving. I found that all approaches are within a fairly clear spectrum. One extreme is people who are always ready to draw something, and the other is those who hate taking up writing materials. ↑ When it comes to visual problem solving, we all
  15. How to find a tool for "live" drawing in POWER POINT
    Although the tablet I use allows me to draw directly on the screen (which greatly simplifies the process), you can use a regular computer mouse for this purpose. The fact that virtually any version of Power Point released in the last five years allows you to draw on the screen is nothing new. This is how it is done: I. Create your own slides just like you normally would.
