Visualisation is a process of creating internal pictures to help you "visualise" a situation or outcome. Another way to think of it is as mental role-play through which you rehearse an experience to achieve the required outcome. This short video guides you through how to do a successful visualisation process.
Some people find it much easier to visualise than others but, with practice, it can be a really powerful tool to help a leader develop their personal power and motivation to carry out an action that they have already experienced internally through their mental imagery. Scenarios where visualisation may be useful for a leader to rehearse their performance and outcome might include:
Preparation for observing a colleague's lesson.
Preparation for giving feedback to a colleague and/or having a difficult conversation.
Rehearsal of a monitoring activity such as a learning walk or work scrutiny.
Preparation for a presentation to stakeholders.
