I am Diane Bleck, and my hope is to help people like YOU embrace your creative side so you can blend it with all your other life experiences.
I have students complete these courses and apply these new skills to coaching, speech therapy, organization development, education, legal negotiations, mergers, patient journeys and so much more. And that is why I am on a mission to inspire the world to DOODLE.
I believe in YOU!
I know you may have heard that doodling is for kids, or that you are not paying attention when you doodle. But I believe people who doodle are actually paying attention more! Doodling allows a visual learner to embrace their favorite method of learning. And while you are doodling, you are synthesizing what you hear to understand complex ideas more easily!
It’s so rewarding when you have an idea and you can draw it out.
An idea that came to you in an instant could get lost – but with the skills you learn at the Doodle Institute you will learn how to draw, build your own visual vocabulary of go-to icons, and then learn how to create deliverables like infographics, videos, and presentations to share your ideas in a unique and powerful way.
And what is even more rewarding is you will be able to see the impact you are having in the world. You will see how important it s to have people like YOU who are creative in business.
My journal was my best friend. I carried it with me everywhere. And I am so grateful for the day I arrived at work with my Dad and one of his partners at his big consulting firm saw my doodles and pointed at the pages of my journal and asked, “Can you do that up there on the whiteboard?”
Luckily I said, “Yes!"
The DOODLE INSTITUTE has helped thousands of people tap into their creativity like never before.
I would love to be your mentor and show you how I went from doodling in my art journal to being asked to draw for companies like Disney, Coca-cola, Google, Wired (even the White House!) to help people visualize their strategic plans, brainstorm new products, or capture key thought leaders presentations at conferences.
If you’ve been keeping a journal, drawing in your bullet joirnal or planner, love to draw now or loved to draw as a kid... this will be most important program you have ever signed up for online!
Are you in transition between careers and trying to figure out how not to go back to just a job, but figure out how you can truly make an impact? This program was designed for you.
I want to do more than teach you to DOODLE. I want to inspire you to bring your full creative self to work and build a dynamic toolkit filled with lots of ideas of how you can change the world one doodle at a time.
