We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words. And a metaphor can be worth a thousand pictures. It is one of the reasons why the best presenters use images instead of text and stories instead of statistics.
If you want to excel in communication, excelling in visual thinking is necessary. The foundation of any communication is getting others to "see" what you’re saying. Communicating visually – whether through the use of visual imagery, mental models, metaphor, or storytelling – will enable you to more effectively get an idea from your "mind’s eye" and into the head of another.
Our guest this week is Todd Cherches, who is the author of "VisuaLeadership."
