I would love to have the skills required to be a graphic recorder or a graphic facilitator. Visual images can be very powerful and I find that using drawings and visual images very helpful in facilitating workshops or discussions. As my drawings are pretty hopeless I mainly get participants to draw (e.g. in World Cafes) and sometimes their notes are great.
Graphic recorders and facilitators take it to a whole other level.
Graphic recorders create a visual record of a meeting or discussion and graphic facilitators actually facilitate the discussion as well as record it.
Here is a short 1 minute introduction to graphic facilitation (although it looks more like graphic recording to me)
and here is a clip with a few other examples.
These types of graphic skills are also increasingly used in presentations too. One of my favourites is the Story of Stuff.
