Your Strengths

Decades of research has shown that when employees are given the opportunity to do what they do best every day, the effect on individual, team, and organizational performance is powerful. The problem is that most people aren’t able to accurately identify their own strengths and therefore can’t intentionally use them.

Let me help you become more effective, efficient, and engaged in your life!

Sketchnoting Tutorial

As I am preparing to publish all 34 themes of talent in a book of Sketchnotes, I thought I'd give you some pointers on how to take Sketchnotes yourself! 

In the past several years I've been asked to take Sketchnotes on everything for Board Meetings, Professional Education Conferences, Sermons, and classroom observations! It's been a great journey!  My favorite thing is to teach students to sketchnote.  There has been a lot of research lately on the benefits of visual note-taking (or Sketchnoting).  

Why Sketchnotes?  Well, frankly, regular notes are BORING! 

Some of them include: 

*  It visually represents the elements of a project: tasks, dates, people, discussions, and reference information.

*  It gives real time processing of information being presented. It forces you to synthesize what you are hearing into only the most important pieces of information. (And those may be different for different people. It's really interesting to take sketch notes along side someone else to see what ideas they pulled from the content!) 

* It improves your memory of information by using the right and left side of your brain together. 

Check out these famous sketchnoters: 

So, you're in good company if you want to start to Sketchnote! Here are a few tips when you are starting out.  Try sketching your favorite quote, TV show, or podcast! Happy Sketching! ~Carol Anne
