“You’re excellent at drawing and should go into business” is what we don’t say to kids… but maybe we should. Visual thinkers solve problems and, despite business’ reliance on numbers and spreadsheets, the whiteboard reigns supreme in strategy sessions for one reason: Visualization gets you to the essence of the problem and allows you to solve it.
Dan Roam’s Napkin Academy offers an excellent framework for how you can become a better visual thinker. Check it out online or start with this excellent five minute interview from Singularity Hub. Because when you need to strategize (or just bring others along for the ride), the Whiteboard is Mightier Than the Email.
