How storyboards, portraits and visual explanations can help us learn to solve the puzzles of our time

By Jennifer Shepherd

As everyday leaders, we are on a learning journey to solve the complex puzzles of our time. When our path or destination is not clear, we can use visually creative processes to help us learn to be in this work together and open to the power of not knowing. We live in a relational world. By collaborating with others to make the invisible visible, we can navigate through unknown waters and find our way.


Visual language enables us to learn, think, and grow in new ways - especially when considering the complex relationships that words alone can't illuminate.  Drawn Together... reflects the power of this field to help transform organizations and communities in life-affirming ways.
