on paper...

Increasigly I find I'm drawn to illustrating event content on paper. White board walls are great and have a role to play however they are temporary. For my work on paper I use 300gsm archival hand made cold prerssed water colour paper... which means it's nice. It's a nice take away that clients frame and put up on the wall in head office as an artwork bespoke to their company and it's journey. But even more than being a nice peice of art it is a means of both diceminating the key messages of an event to those not furtunate enough to be present at the time and also keeping those messages alive once the all too familiar flood of BAU washes back over you post event...

start of the journey
day one of training leaders of the future...
minding the gap
being mindful not to let anyone slip through the cracks...
animals
i often use animals in human situations as it removes any challenges of gender and ethnicity.
the plan
if you haven't really thought what it is, then how do you know where you are leading your people..?
agile vs bureaucracy
the world is spinning faster and faster, if you're not agile then how do you expect to keep up..?
high performing teams
apparently you will only ever get the opportunity to be in two during your lifetime...
blame culture
did you do that or did I... and if it was me... then you did it...
the landscape
the pages I draw are both stand alone and work together to create a larger landscape...
simplicity
just because you're an SME doesn't mean everyone else is...
change
the only constant is...
help
its a big world with a lot of hills, we all need help along the way... admit it or not...
choosing a theme
you need a theme of some form to tie the imagery together, say a construction site for a large ongoing program...
optimism
a feeling i heard people mention... some time ago... in the past...
inquiry science
one in a series of posters to accompany educational videos for aspirant teachers...
did you know
...as a leader you can actually talk to people as if you were both normal... imagine.
so you have an idea
it may be a great one... but perhaps it may not be as great as someone else's ...
an important thing
...ensuring that no one sit outside the bubble...
well done!
now there's no need to whisper that is there...
stories
if it's not a good story, then who is really listening..?
a fine balance
but not easy to obtain... start with simply doing the right thing... all the time.
working in the zoo
and listening to everyone and not caring who's who in the zoo...
go on
be better, there are so many ways to do it...
ohhh
curse that knowledge...
up there..?!
it would appear you don't belong down here..!
just take a moment
and have a chat. It's free and may well yield surprising results...
say that again
... actually, don't bother...
working together
...and taking advice from others...
purpose
do you have one..?

details
all go towards making a rich full picture...
i dare say...
...most leaders may not have considered this when it comes down to it...
people
and of course there are times when you need people, not animals...
