People are sometimes afraid to sketch out their ideas - in PUBLIC no less! - because they think that what they draw isn't "good enough." This presentation makes a case for why what you draw IS good enough for solving problems and sharing ideas. www.jeannelking.com @jeannelking

  • Close your eyes for a moment and think back to when you were five years old. You were full of energy and excitement for all the cool things to discover in the world...and one of your favorite ways to express yourself was to draw.
  • Who could stop you from drawing???
  • why is that? I’m very interested in this because of my own work
  • You see, I’m a graphic facilitator.
  • because we all have lots of ideas. but don’t really know what to do with them all...or how to explain them to others...or to even get others to see what we mean.
  • So my business is all about making those invisible ideas visible, so you can work with them and act on them...in ways that are easy to understand, share, and use. Make complexity simple to understand, share, and act upon using simple pictures
  • I get this. Really.
  • You see, because when I first started my business as a graphic facilitator, and people would come up to me and say all these amazing things, Invariably, at the end of every project I hear the same thing: OMG you just totally blew my mind! I have no idea how you do that! You’re such an artist! You must have been an artist when you were growing up...
  • And in MY brain, I’d hear that and immediately think:I’M not an artist. My mom’s the artist. She can draw hands. Heck, she even drew these hands using crayons! My drawings look like how I drew in junior high school. I’m not an artist.

  • I can't draw = I can't draw the way I think I should be able to draw = I can't draw perfectly
  • But very quickly into my career, I realized something: I WAS an artist...and the - shall we say - gloriously imperfect drawings I created were really connecting with people.
  • You see, because when I first started my business as a graphic facilitator, and people would come up to me and say all these amazing things, Invariably, at the end of every project I hear the same thing: OMG you just totally blew my mind!

  • What I drew was good enough! And what you draw is good enough, too.
  • What I drew was good enough! And what you draw is good enough, too.
  • Make it easier, even compelling, to pick up a pen/marker and engage in powerful conversations
  • The visual brain - 75% of sensory brain dedicated to visual processes, and over 2/3rds of entire brain dedicated to visual processes
  • Triune brain

  • Zarnieke effect - limbic brain wants to fill in the gaps and stay engaged

  • Mirror neurons are a particular class of visuomotor neurons, originally discovered in area F5 of the monkey premotor cortex, that discharge both when the monkey does a particular action and when it observes another individual (monkey or human) doing a similar action.Rizzolatti G, Craighero L, “The mirror-neuron system,” in Annual Review of Neuroscience, issue 27 (2004) p. 1
  • Dan Roam's comment - the more human the drawing the more we associate with it.(Mirror Neurons?)
  • Imperfect drawings = drafts = okay to engage
  • highly polished, lots of work, don’t want to hurt feelings so won’t say anything. Perfect drawings = finished = not okay to engage or change
  • Imperfect drawings = easier to relate to the person drawing
  • COURAGE to draw imperfectly in public = you've got balls!  Admiration and envy
  • able to figure out quickly, addictive as hell, fun! a game the limbic brain LOVES
  • According to Gamesindustry.biz , Draw Something has been downloaded over 37 million times and has over 20 million active users. There are currently 3,000 drawings created every second, over a billioneach week.

  • When you need to get that idea out of your head quickly Capture it, be able to work with it. When you need to communicate ideas and information instantly
  • When you want people to engage with ideas.Even with the stuffed shirts!
  • When you are solving problems and you want people to interact with your content Encourage them to pick up the pen and make their own edits!
  • When you want to influence decisions
  • When you’re selling an idea. Yes, even the high stakes ones!
  • But Jeannel, people won’t take me seriously if I draw out my ideas during a business meeting!

  • Accenture Superbowl
  • Interactive IdeasWith people
  • interactive with other people, or with the ideas. Picture superiority effect...10% words only 3 days after. Add images, retention increases by over 400%.
  • What do I have to be able to do to pull this off? (Because I can’t draw!)
  • Eyes, ears, mind’s eye, hands, hand-eye coordination
  • Surface and marking materialPaper and pen, Whiteboard and markersTablet and stylus and drawing software (brushes, sketchbook pro, penultimate, etc.)Sandy beach and a stick!
  • “ But I can’t draw” Bullshit.  You just don’t love the way your drawings look.  And that improves with practice.  But you CAN draw.  And what you draw is good enough. Solving problems and sharing ideas with pictures has nothing to do with artistic talent.  It has everything to do with your ability to transform information to knowledge and apply it in simple renderings.
  • BuddhismNot one buddhaEveryone is a buddhaJust as everyone’s a buddha, so is everyone a stick figure strategistSome are just further along than others!If you could see what I see, every one of you has that five-year-old, that buddha, waiting to pick up the pen and bring their ideas to life.
