今天很开心和你分享Yuri Malishenko,原本来自Kyiv,Ukraine 的他在2016 来到了Copenhagen, Denmark。 我和他的相识竟然是在他介绍视觉领域人才的音频节目里.在他多元的身份里都可以看到他巧妙利用视觉来让自己更效率，一起来感受Yuri的魅力!
Today I am excited to share with you about Yuri Malishenko who is originally from Kyiv, Ukraine and in 2016 I relocated to Copenhagen, Denmark. I know him from his podcast that share about the amazing stories from the visual practitioner. From his amazing and diverse background, i always can sense his creative way to implement visual thinking and success, lets enjoy this interview article!
Here is how the amazing side of him especially in visual world:
How did you get to know the visual thinking world? 你怎样踏入视觉思维的世界
I think I discovered it for myself when my parents gave me paper and a box of colored pencils. That is one of my early memories. I really liked to draw and I kept on drawing throughout my life – mostly to entertain myself.
How does this amazing visual thinking change your world? 这个神奇的视觉思维如何改变了你的世界
When I started to work I would always use drawings and simple sketches to clarify complex things for myself and to communicate my ideas to colleagues and customers. It was very useful at the time of me working as a graphic designer but was also very valuable when I started working with software development – there is so much need to express yourself clearly and explore complex and intangible topics together with other people. In 2011 I became a management consultant tasked with implementing agile in the organizations of our customers. That is when I realized the true power of visual thinking and became aware of it as a crucial tool for my professional efficacy.
How does your passion keep going on in this industry? 是怎样保持这领域的热情呢?
Today I work as an agile coach which means that I work with people that come from diverse industries, different cultures and speak different languages both literally and specialist jargon-wise. I train, I coach, I mentor and I facilitate a lot. Visual thinking is a fundamental tool for me to succeed in my tasks. I also found out that I am not unique when it comes to applying visual thinking in professional life: more and more people become aware of its powers and want to learn more about it. And I see it as my mission to help others learn the skill. I champion the skill by organizing a community, recording podcast conversations and blogging on Instagram and Youtube, teaching workshops, and speaking at conferences.
What do you wish to use the “visual thinking” method to contribute to society and the world? 你希望视觉思维方法如何更好地服务社会和世界呢？
I think that the use of visual thinking can do more than increasing the productivity of individuals and groups of people. I have noticed that people who practice visual thinking improve their ability to think clearer, effectively interpret complex topics, and see a bigger picture behind isolated events and facts. It is my belief that visual thinking can help grow generations of people who are more difficult to misinform since they have a greater immunity strengthened by critical thinking. It is my hope that such a society is wiser, better, and more resilient to the bad effects of propaganda, racism, bigotry, and other negative effects that are plaguing the global community.
而且Yuri 也认为视觉思维可以让下一代的思维更清晰因为他们的评判性思维越来越好了。而且让社会更有智慧，变得更好和更好地对抗负面议题是Yuri 的梦想。
