How To Embrace Your Super Power And Nurture Your Imagination
Episode 51 – How To Embrace Your Super Power And Nurture Your Imagination with Ann English.
Another addition to our ‘invest in yourself’ mini-series as part of the Content Marketing Studio.
I am joined by visual communicator and visual marketing coach Ann English to look at ways to make your content more engaging by using your imagination:
In this episode Ann English and I talk about:
(c) Ann English – Vision Tree Visual Doodle
the importance of capturing your ideas because your mind is a place to generate ideas but not to store them
ways to avoid killing your ideas and tapping into your big vision as the key motivator
why the word ‘but’ is going to squash your ideas and why you should use the word ‘because’ instead
why the word ‘how’ is going to get in the way and why you should change it to ‘who’
the positive impact of conversations for ideas and her 3-step process: express – listen – visual doodles
how she discovered that her doodles were helpful to others and became a key service to customers
surrounding yourself with objects, people and locations that have a meaning to you that will fuel your imagination
how to find your super power by using active listening as others will spot it before you do and by allowing yourself to feel vulnerable
why she now believes that ‘your why should make you cry’ and that ‘rejection is redirection’
working for Disney and the lessons from the imagineers, her experience with Lego Serious Play
and so much more!
