Jill Butler, a former New York City corporate executive and creative artistic entrepreneur, recently taught Mount Saint Mary College students techniques for quick and effective problem solving.

Mind-Mapping can help with everything from drafting a publication to decluttering office space, noted Butler. The technique gets details corralled quickly. 

Creating a Verbal Picture helps users set goals for both work and personal life, starting in the present and moving to the imagined future. With this in mind, one can create the action steps needed to make their vision a reality. 

The workshops were sponsored by the Mount’s Honors Program and the First Year Experience (FYE) Program. The rigorous Honors Program, open to all majors, challenges students to maximize their learning and leadership skills. FYE helps freshman students acclimate themselves to college life and build a path to lasting success.
