“Wendie’s approach to Idea Surgery helped me visualize the areas of my life that are important to me and where I spend most of my time.

Which led me to shift away from the areas that were out of alignment.”

What’s the Difference Between Idea Surgery and Mind Mapping?

This process for strategic planning was tested with over 20 coalitions, grantees, clients, and communities across the country before it was ever made public.

Traditional mind mapping only shows you what’s happening visually.

Idea Surgery is a set of tailored prompts and protocols to help you move through the mind mapping and strategy development process quickly and efficiently.

Get Clarity. Get Results.

I Highly Recommend

“Idea Surgery is amazing! It’s my go to on a weekly basis as I map out ideas for the different dynamics of my business & life.
As someone with an ADHD diagnosis having Wendie teach me this process helped me to understand what my brain wasn’t naturally doing.
Business has so many different moving pieces & as a creative I have tons of ideas.
Idea surgery helps you get it out of your head and into a cohesive format that supports you to turn your ideas into an actionable plan.
Idea surgery is more than a tool it’s a life skill!”
