Forget inefficient communication!
When communication is no longer an issue, you can focus on more important things!
Send the message in no time!
Mapping puts an unprecedented-but-invisible structure on your conversations.
You will need less* time to explain your thinking.
Even complex ideas are easy to convey over a coffee.
Your boss will love it. So will your customers!
Nothing shows your attitude better than a map expressing both the merit of your knowledge and the amount of preparation you have put in.
At the same time.
Sometimes, simplicity is not acceptable... upfront!
You need to show that you have thought of everything first.
Maps will help you express the complexity and justify the simple solution.
One technique, many applications
Building rapport with your boss & colleagues - to show what you know and how you think
Building rapport with your customers - to demonstrate the effort and let them understand your motives
Supporting strategic conversations - to put everyone on the same page
Managing projects - to remove uncertainty and learn in a structured way
In consulting - to identify your customer assumptions and challenge them as needed
In every situation where premature simplifications or unconscious assumptions may have unacceptable consequences
