Want to improve productivity, organize complex information and leverage your brain power while solving a problem? The concept of Idea Mapping is a unique visual technique designed to help people think, learn and create more effectively—a method that has applications across a wide range of pursuits. The Werner Institute, housed within the Creighton University School of Law, will host a webinar on the topic as part of its monthly webinar series on topics related to negotiation and dispute resolution; through the Institute’s free social media community ADRhub.
The complimentary webinar, “Idea Mapping: Graphic Facilitation,” will be led by Jamie Nast, author of the book Idea Mapping and cofounder of NastGroup, a training and consultancy organization. She is in great demand as a speaker and has a client list of organizations in the U.S. and around the world. Through her regular workshops, she has taught Idea Mapping to over 19,000 people.
Ms. Nast will explain how to create and use Idea Maps to promote more creative, systematic and efficient learning and thinking. She will discuss three key aspects of the concept, talk about potential difficulties, and show examples of Idea Maps created for use in business situations.
The webinar will take place as follows:
