Dancing with Markers® offers a simple and customized process for creative discovery and connection as early career professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders, teams, and organizations work towards their visions, design their strategies and reach their goals.
We believe that everyone can love their work and create the change they want to see. We aim to create connection during times of distance—visuals help us get there. Dancing with Markers® specializes in the use of visuals to capture and retain knowledge and insights. We draw upon our diverse toolkit of visual modalities, powerful questions, experiential learning tools, and artistic approach to support your movement.
Think of us as your connection point for the visual services that will uniquely support your goals—get your ideas on paper; draw out the journey; see your vision in a real way; and make the journey approachable and achievable.
Founded by Lauren Green in 2017, Dancing with Markers® is an associate network, Limited Liability Company (LLC) serving the global community from the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. Dancing with Markers® offers visual facilitation, visual note-taking, coaching, workshops and training, and consulting services, both in person and online. Dancing with Markers® also supports "new to virtual" facilitators, early career facilitators and budding visual practitioners through its online community network, online courses, digital products and live events.
When it comes to training, facilitating, and visual-notetaking, we partner with leaders, fellow facilitators and event organizers on your meetings and events, moving them from average to extraordinary through bringing in visuals that support dialogue, team-development, idea-generation, goal-setting, strategic visioning, creative conflict, and inclusive decision-making. Any session we're involved in will include professional-quality artistry in every visual we provide, whether we are in the room to take notes or guide the program itself. Participants leave sessions we are a part of with a level of clarity they can only achieve through seeing their ideas.
We believe online meetings should be approached with as much humanity as possible. We merge our hand-drawn approach with digital tools, to create virtual experiences that feel like you're actually in the room.
Our leadership development and training programs are designed to provoke self-awareness, build emotional intelligence and provide tangible tools for building and sustaining high-performing teams and organizations. Our participants describe our presence as patient, energetic, generous and thought-provoking, leaving space for personal insight through reflection and storytelling.
When it comes to coaching and consulting, we partner with leaders, early career facilitators, "new to virtual" facilitators, and entrepreneurs. We customize our approach to the individual and believe in empowering individuals to build on strengths, overcome limiting beliefs, make their mark and dance into possibility. We guarantee your progress towards your goals, whether it's hosting better online meetings, finding balance in your work and personal life, or starting a new venture or career.
