HRDQ-U Webinar | Visual Thinking for Effective Leadership

Visual Thinking for Effective Leadership

This On-Demand event was originally presented on March 12, 2014 (60 min)


In the face of organizational complexity and workplace chaos, it’s time to challenge leaders with a new way of thinking. Visual thinking, that is. Grounded in research, this dynamic technique is an excellent way to stimulate dialogue and provide a deeper understanding of how leadership plays out in organizations. After all, if a “picture paints a thousand words,” imagine what leaders can accomplish when they harness the power of visual thinking through the use of imagery, intuition, and metaphors.

Join experts David Horth and Chuck Palus of the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) when they present Visual Thinking for Effective Leadership, a highly interactive webinar that will explore this concept, examine best practices, and show you how to apply it to leadership development. This webinar is based on Visual Explorer, the course they developed that is available at HRDQ. This course is a powerful tool for encouraging collaborative conversations.

Attendees will learn

  • The research and best practices behind visual thinking.
  • How visual thinking promotes creative and effective leadership.

  • How visual thinking can help leaders to improve direction, alignment, and commitment.
