David Sibbet's New Book: Visual Meetings

Posted on August 16, 2010 at 2:02pm 1 Comment

David Sibbet taught many of us old timers group graphics and pioneered the use of graphic templates --of which MAPS & PATH are examples. He has supplemented his very useful set of beautifully produced (and expensive) specialized manuals with Visual Meetings: How graphics, sticky notes & idea mapping can transform group productivity. Very reasonably priced at your local bookstore or online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Anyone who wants to help any group do better work… Continue

Hi John
Well, the dust is settling and I've caught up on some sleep and am starting to make sense of the MAP/PATH course and get some practice in with some willing volunteers/victims at work.
Thank you for the course...the way you framed each day's learning was incredibly helpful and always manage to do both things...teach and inspire...
I'm just trying to find my own form of words for the questions and ideas...I was facilitating a meeting yesterday and lifted a couple of questions directly from my notes and what sounded fine coming out of your mouth fell flat with the weight of a Scottish accent and an Australian audience so I've got to find out my way of asking it.
People LOVED the question about what kind of interesting trouble they could get in to...absolutely loved lit up the thank you for that.
I wondered if you were likely to post your notes from the morning sessions on the network under the PATH/MAP group? And if you hadn't thought about it...would you mind doing that? And, of course, the great poetry thief that I am...could you give me some details about the poetry you read to us...the one about the white lion...the Hafiz piece and I wondered too where the Tuna Salad sandwich piece came from.
Thanks again John for all that you apologies for my loud and cranky way of seemed louder and crankier than usual...I'm blaming that partly on the shock to my system of the distance travelled and partly on that just being a part of who I am!
Hope you are well...thank you again
Love, Heather
