What is Graphic Recording?
Graphic recording is a visual recording of a talk, discussion, workshop, or coaching session. Many of our coaching sessions will incorporate this practice, since we understand that these images are key for creating vision and clarity from conversations.
These images can be displayed, or used as artefacts that remind people of how they felt, commitments they made, or contributions they shared.
How can it help you?
- Visual reminders can be used in both physical and digital environments to foster a sense of shared goals, emotions, and culture
- Engaging and accessible to all (especially those who are neurodiverse)
- Playback sparks “ah-ha!” moments of clarity and a consolidation of understanding
- Communicates complex ideas in a memorable way
How does it work?
A scribe will listen in on a facilitated session and sense what needs to be recorded and played back to the room. They will then draw the relevant images and words to reflect what is happening or being said. They may also identify new patterns or themes that the group should be aware of. Finally, the Scribe will present the image back to the group, which often creates an “ah-ha!” moment of clarity and sense making from what was hard to see within the discussion.
This is part of how we deliver Bryter Work solutions! You’ll get options on how to best utilise this technique, depending on your unique needs. If you simply want a graphic recording for a single event, we’re happy to offer that too.
