Seeing What Matters

I am excited! I have been waiting for more than 15 years to participate in one of Amy Herman’s workshops on The Art of Perception. I met Amy years ago when I worked with her sister. I was fascinated by Amy’s choice to use works of fine art as a tool to improve observation, communication, and problem-solving skills.

I was intrigued by her impressive client list of Fortune 500 business leaders and counter-terrorism intelligence agencies. I was fascinated by her work with everyone from first responders and professional athletes to solopreneurs and volunteers like me.  I pre-ordered her book and eagerly awaited its publication.

The book arrived and I began my quest to improve my visual intelligence, something I didn’t even realize I needed. After all, I am a reasonably intelligent, educated woman who has a fair amount of life experience. I know that I don’t always – okay ever – think in a straight line. I know that I am detail oriented as my former colleagues used to remind me. Thanks to Amy’s book, I also now know that I consistently overlook the meaning of small details that are literally right in front of me.

So yes, I am excited to participate in what promises to be an eye-opening day that will lead to greater awareness and a more intentional way of thinking and problem-solving.
