CHRISTINA’S FACILITATION SPECIALTY: "STRATEGIC VISIONING"

Most of my facilitation work centers around helping groups determine what they really want (vision) and creating plans to help them get there. My roots are in a process called Strategic Visioning, which is a highly effective and creative method developed by The Grove Consultants International (a pioneering group graphics firm based in San Francisco). For more information about the Strategic Visioning Process, click here.

“The processes that can be mapped out are not limited to but include brainstorming, strategic planning, conflict resolution and mediation, teaching, presenting ideas, project planning, career and transition planning and counseling … in personal and professional life, any time people are gathered together to discuss options, ideas, strategies, potential conflicts, history or future – it’s a good time to get out the paper and start mapping.”
Millie Sonneman, author of Hands on Graphics

Brainstorming Communicate with words and pictures

“We know that the human mind organizes and responds to information and stimuli by organizing them into complex maps or images and labels – thus the maps created in graphic facilitation speak directly to our most natural way of understanding, connecting, and analyzing a wealth of information. In addition, graphically facilitating a group discussion allows different people to absorb new information in the way they’re most comfortable with – some respond best to the image maps, some prefer to concentrate on the words”
