Visual Thinking Made Simple

Brandy Agerbeck wants you to feel how productive and satisfying it is to put your thinking into your own hands. 

On this page, she walks you through a model, the triangular drawing you'll see below, describing 4 levels of resources she offers to make visual thinking simple.

 It all starts with you and what you need and want to do.

You may be looking for how to solve a very specific problem. Level 1 can help get you unstuck and making progress on your goal.

If you are curious whether visual thinking is even for you, Level 2 helps you understand what it is, what mental blocks may be getting in your way, and a brief overview of visual thinking's very learnable pieces. 

If you know you want to become a stronger visual thinker, Levels 3 and 4 are for you. 

As you scroll, you'll see as you move up in the model, your knowledge and abilities expand. 

The stronger visual thinker you are, the:

  • Faster you can tap into flow state and focus.

  • Better skills you have in organizing your thoughts, feelings, and ideas.

  • Greater your ability to use your visual thinking skills to help others.

  • Increased agility you have to use visual thinking in all corners of your life.

  • Less confusion, friction, or overwhelm you feel day-to-day.

  • More effortlessly you solve problems, the more clearly you communicate, the easier it is to think critically and creatively.  

Level 1: Guided Exercises

Life Shapers

If you are looking for immediate tools to make your life and work less overwhelming and more clear, look to the life shapers!

A life shaper is a guided exercise Brandy leads you through via video helping you working out a current problem you have. 

For example, if you were feeling like you were overcommitted to other people and trying to reclaim your time, making a 'social map' could help. 

In Life Shaper: Social Map, Brandy leads you through how to get all of the people, communities and organizations you are connected with out on paper. 

By making these connections, disconnections, and commitment visible and tangible, you can see who is most important to you, where your time goes, and what may need to change. 

Every life shaper is crafted from Brandy's personal and professional experience and designed to become a useful tool you can use again and again.

  • Time & space to focus on your specific challenge 
  • Get unstuck, get clarity, and move forward
  • Repeatable processes with simple materials

Level 2: One Hour Intro

Visual Thinking 101

For years, Brandy balked at creating an introductory visual thinking course. There is no shortcut in developing this rich, powerful skillset. She'd say, "I can't teach you visual thinking in an hour!" 

Finally, one day she flipped the idea — what if she had one hour of your attention? What would she teach you?

That is Visual Thinking 101.  This is a one-hour video session to:

  • See how visual thinking can reach all corners of your life
  • Clear away your mental blocks
  • Learn the very first steps to shift your thinking from linear to spatial
  • Introduce you to the 9 Elements of Visual Thinking


Take Visual Thinking 101

Visual Thinking 101 can be just the mindset-shifter you need to see that:

  • ⭐ Visual thinking is super heckin' useful
  • ⭐ Learning visual thinking does take unlearning some well-worn habits
  • ⭐ Visual thinking is absolutely learnable.

Now, we roll up our sleeves, and get to learning the good stuff!
