Mind Mapping


I need to introduce delegates on a communication course to mind mapping without going into tremendous detail.

  1. mind mapping
    2000 characters isn’t enough to describe the process and what you need to do. But if you would like to email me I wil be happy to share the process I take people through on my workshops. Takes about15 – 30 mins dependig on how much you want to do.

  2. Mind mapping introduction

    I’ve used the idea of “Moving House” and “Planning for Christmas” as 2 easy ways to introduce Mind Mapping to others – starting with the central theme or goal and then branching off from that with eg solicitors / estate agents / jobs to do on house prior to sale / mortgage lenders – etc and branched off further from there. Christmas idea same – branching off onto Food / Guests / Presents – etc. By using 2 topics like this that people are (generally) familiar with, they can concentrate on the process of mind mapping rather than struggling with content – which I find really works. I’ll also use lots of colours to represent a different “theme or area”, and then encourage them to use the process throughout the rest of the day to “take notes on the training” – then review and debrief at end.

    Hope these helps ?

  3. Six Key Words
    I am currently engaged on a training programmewith 18 to 24 year old Gateway to Work clients. THey are mainly male and many don’t want to be on the course but their New DEal Adviser insists!
    I mind map Skills, Attitudes, KNowledge and Experience(SAKE) by asking each delegate to interview their neighbour about these 4 factors. In subsequent plenary feedback I insist on only receiving six words – the perceptions of the interviewer – which the pair subsequently discuss and then using SAKE start to construct their own mind maps. Usually high energy and animated discussions ensure coherant mind maps

    Good Luck!
