Deepening Strategic Visioning
In a recent visioning session, long-time client Valerie used the ImageSet to help bring focus to a group of nurses who were getting stuck.
The nurses were trying hard to get away from their stock answers and needed something to spark some creativity and renew focus.
Using the VisualsSpeak tools, Valerie asked the nurses to think visually by selecting one or two images to represent their priorities. Adding the physical element of getting up and gathering around the table to look at and chose images is a fantastic way to add additional tactile elements to the exercise.
They got up, moved around, engaged with one another and really embraced the experience. This process lead to a much more in-depth discussion about what the priorities they were focusing on meant to them individually and as a group.
This is a common response. Research shows that when you can get individuals physically engaged in a process you up the potentiality of new and deeper outcomes. The physical coupled with the visual helps to bring new insights and fresh ideas to established patterns.
The nurses were struggling to come up with new ideas and meaning, the ImageSet broke the struggle and enhanced the process. The visioning session was a success for Valerie and for her clients!
