Information Became Insight for These Organizations

Ken Hubbell ActionCraft

In this time of crisis and virtual work, leaders are struggling to stay focused on the key ideas and action steps during the onslaught of video sessions. We have a solution to creating meaningful, memorable and actionable gatherings with our artistic and soulful graphic recordings. This summer, we partnered with four, forward-looking organizations to engage leaders grappling with big challenges with few clear, easy answers.

We participate attentively in the video conference, and capture the big purpose and the essence of the discussion in words and pictures. Part of our illustration includes identifying important questions and lifting out possible action.

We can quickly collect the key sketches and interpretative highlights in workbooks or Snapshots for sharing on shared cloud drives, the web or in email. The positive and forward-looking visuals combine ideas and questions with inspiring pictures to turn that firehose of information into insights that can be acted upon– even if the challenges explored are big and complex!

This summer, we partnered with the Center for Courage and Renewal, Tracey Green Washington (Indigo Innovation Group), Gary Hubbell Consulting and Eagle Valley Behavioral Health to engage leaders grappling with big challenges with few clear, easy answers: deepening equity and anti-racism practice, enhancing public health and well-being and delivering safe, impactful public education during the pandemic.

Our work, highlighted here, illustrates how cool pictures keep the central ideas present and memorable while leaders grapple with the right adaptive responses. As Ron Heifetz observed, “without learning new ways—changing attitudes, values, and behaviors—people cannot make the adaptive leap necessary to thrive in the new environment.” Certainly this year, we’ve been drawing out ideas in a space of constant adaption!
