A colleague of ours, Lynn Carruthers, was featured this week in the San Francisco Chronicle talking about her experiences as a graphic recorder.
Here is a portion of the article:
I work for a local consulting firm, Global Business Network. I was the assistant to the chairman, Peter Schwartz, for eight years. And then one day one of my colleagues who had seen a graphic recorder said, “There’s this thing out there. You ought to look into it.”
I thought, “What can I lose?” So I took a two-day class at the Grove, a consultancy in the Presidio where graphic recording was developed by the founder David Sibbet. The next week Peter had a job at Motorola. He said, “You want to come with me and do that paper thing?” and off it started. I’ve been recording eight years.

In 2005, career counselor Mary Robins and I began collaborating on The Career Compass. I am one of many who worked on The Personal Compass and was delighted to create a new personal-development tool. Some of you may be wondering how The Career Compass differs from The Personal Compass. When Mary and I began designing, it became clear to me just how different the two tools would be. First of all, The Personal Compass is designed to guide you through an introspective journey. Most, if not all, of the information individuals fill in the templates comes from what is already in their heads.
