Our Philosophy

Dog having fun jumpingAt VisualsSpeak, we have a core set of principles that guide our products, our services, and our day-to-day work. This philosophy helps shape everything we do.

Creative processes should be fun and experiential.

Having fun opens the doors to creativity and stimulates new approaches to problem solving. Getting everyone involved in a process and giving them a voice in the outcome is how to engage people most effectively. Fun experiences are where creativity lives.

We value long-term relationships.

We want to work with you on a long-term basis and have you feel you could recommend us to a colleague without hesitation. Our relationship is a partnership.

We use a holistic approach to facilitating processes.

VisualsSpeak tools engage both the creative and analytical parts of people. Our techniques are designed to tap into the deep creative aspect of ourselves to solve problems, generate ideas, and to make deep connections with people.

Participant-led processes empower people.

Participants are the only ones who can correctly identify, label and clarify their ideas, beliefs and values. Our job is to offer guidance in how these participants can get deeper insights and be able to communicate them in a way that others can understand.

Cooperative communities have a greater ability to enhance processes than a single ‘expert’.

We are committed to inviting and sharing information on more effective practices with the VisualsSpeak community. When we all share knowledge, we all benefit.
