The Power of Models

Take the time to create a visual model of your ideas.

Creating context above every point you want to make, is a master Thought Leaders tool. Whether it’s a quadrant, some concentric circles, a pyramid or even a simple triangle, a model helps you make more than one point. It helps define the conversational boundaries of any discussion.

Some great models;

  • Maslows hierarchy of needs
  • Dr Stephen Coveys First things first model
  • Robert Kiyosaki’s Cash Flow Quadrant model
Become a forensic model scientist. Capture and clipboard every model you see. Dissect the anatomy of models, tracking their structure, their design and intent.

Basically....Learn to love models!
