Visual facilitation is the use of visual tools to help individuals, teams, and organizations achieve breakthroughs. Our approach to visual facilitation is to design a facilitation process using visual templates and tools from thought leaders in graphic facilitation (The Grove Consultants International) and design thinking (LUMA Institute). Visual facilitation lends itself well to change strategy, strategic planning, communications planning, process design, systems thinking, future visioning, team norming, leadership development, and more.
