Dancing with Markers® is an associate network of visual practitioners who use clear and illuminating visuals to help you get your ideas on paper; draw out the journey; see your vision in a real way; and make the ambiguous journey of change more approachable and achievable. Everyone deserves to love their work and create the change they want to see. Think of us as your connection point for the visual services that will uniquely support your goals.
We partner with early career professionals, new-to-virtual facilitators, solopreneurs, collaborative leaders, and co-creative teams as they work towards their visions, design their strategies and reach their goals.
Our process is simple and customized. We aim to create connection, especially 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.
Founded by Lauren Green in 2017, Dancing with Markers® is a team of professional visual practitioners able to leverage a vast associate network to serve 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 collaborative 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 collaborative leaders, early career facilitators, "new to virtual" facilitators, and solopreneurs who are just starting out. We customize our approach to your unique needs and will empower you you to build on your strengths, overcome limiting beliefs, make your 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.
