“We have become so enamoured of our ability to talk that we often delude ourselves into thinking that, if we can talk about an idea, we understand it well.”
In this podcast, I talk with Dan Roam, author of BLAH, BLAH, BLAH: What To Do When Words Don’t Work. Roam’s mission is to help us solve problems and sell ideas more effectively–not just with words, but by tapping the power of visual communication.
He’s written two other bestsellers on that topic: The Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems and Selling Ideas with Picture, and Unfolding the Napkin: The Hands-On Method for Solving Complex Problems with Simple Pictures.
Dan gives us some great (and easy) pointers for clarifying complex ideas and finding workable solutions to tough problems–using pictures!
