9.00 The Power of Visuality in Turbulent Times

Gwendolyn Galsworth | Visual Thinking / Europe

Covid didn’t just change us. Covid changed our economy. In this time of continued disruption and uncertainty, companies need a proven and powerful process for stabilizing the workplace, achieving urgent improvement outcomes, and growing a spirited, creative, and contributing workforce—on all levels of the enterprise. Workplace visuality, the universal language of performance, is that process. There is no work environment that visual thinking cannot make safer, smarter, and more reliable—and no work culture, however diverse, it cannot make more engaged, inclusive, and productive. 

Join Dr. Gwendolyn Galsworth, leading visual workplace expert and award-winning author, as she shares key concepts, principles, and practices that make what is supposed to happen, happen visually—and demonstrate why workplace visuality is indispensable to establishing an accelerated flow, dramatically improved results, and a transformed work culture, even in these turbulent times. Let the workplace speak.
