Leadership Workshop XXXIV: Using Images to Evoke Meaningful Questions and Change the Conversation

  • Littauer Building; 324 - The Fainsod Room 79 John F. Kennedy Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

With this HKSNE workshop, participants will be introduced to using photo images for surfacing meaningful questions related to challenging problems. Following an introduction to Ms. Carla Kimball's process, workshop members will work in small teams. The teams will apply their freshly-learned knowledge, employ the  insights garnered from her process, and identify specific issues and concerns team members are experiencing in their lives. Each participant will explore a problem alive to them in the moment and select an image that resonates with that moment. With the help of their team members and the selected image, seminar participants will craft questions designed to help them affect a more nuanced and deeper understanding of the issue they currently face.

Ticket sales close on Monday, June 10th at 2pm.

About our Speaker:  Carla Kimball, MA, MBA 
As a keen observer of the world around her, CARLA KIMBALL reveals the beauty and presence of ordinary things through her photography. Since early 2009, Carla has combined photos with thought-provoking questions and posted them to her photo blog. Because of her 10-year blogging practice, Carla has accumulated a vast archive of photos and questions.

This decade-long approach has led Carla to develop two different sets of photography / question cards designed to deepen conversations. Her Revealed Presence®  Story Cards elicit stories to be shared in both structured and informal conversation. Her Intuitive Directions® card set help people think out of the box as they consider important issues in their personal and professional lives. Both sets of cards offer images and questions that evoke deeper conversations. The cards are designed to help one break out of patterned ways of thinking. The questions invite curiosity and create openings in our thinking. The images engage the imagination, draw on past experiences, and can lead users into further clarity.
