Today’s Creative Mornings Johannesburg event took place on a Thursday. It’s the July event. Taking place in August.. Roberto Pombo, actor, clown, vulnerable human being, took us on his journey from experiencing a year of ‘dying’ on stage, through to his realisation that fear and failure are not the enemies.

My #sketchnote of Vinay Rajah’s SAALED talk: “Vignettes of a Voyager” #visualfacilitation #sketchnoting #sketchnotes

The South African Association for Learning and Educational Differences (SAALED www.facebook.com/SAALEDZA/) had a dinner last night at Pridwin Preparatory School near Rosebank. I was there to do live digital sketchnoting of the talk by keynote speaker, Vinay Rajah. Her talk was about diversity. My key takeout from the night was that we need to challenge stereotypes. We mustn’t sit back and let things slide. This is the full image I created. I’ll be delivering a talk to the SAALED members during their AGM in September,…Continue Reading “My #sketchnote of Vinay Rajah’s SAALED talk: “Vignettes of a Voyager” #visualfacilitation #sketchnoting #sketchnotes”

1 of 4 Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions — Octagon Base

If you want a tool that’ll allow you to name the emotion you’re feeling, Plutchik’s three-dimensional WHEEL of EMOTION is an excellent place to start.

You print them out without modifying the size, and they’ll fit together once you’ve cut them out. The way the wheel works is that the emotions at the very tip of…Continue Reading “1 of 4 Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions — Octagon Base”

Who is listening or talking cards

Here’s a little tiny deck of cards that can be printed at A4 or A5, and cut out, and carried. And used when conflict happens. I’ve "procedurised" this from the premise of Hal and Sidra Stone’s amazing book, PARTNERING. They postulate that at any given time, in any pair of people, each person is in a particular role… Adult, Parent, Child. When I’m in child mode, chances are I’m activating parent mode in my partner. If I’m in helpless, terrified child mode, my partner’s parent…Continue Reading “Who is listening or talking cards”
