Are you a creator, connoisseur, or a passive onlooker of art? No matter the answer, you may be surprised that art serves as an important tool to help enhance observation and problem-solving skills. Sharpening your perception not only changes the way you look at art, but it can also change the way you see the world and your work.

On this episode, Deloitte Chief Well-being Officer Jen Fisher talks with Amy Herman, a lawyer, art historian, and author of the books Visual Intelligence: Sharpen Your Perception, Change Your Life and Fixed: How to Perfect the Fine Art of Problem Solving about visual intelligence and how viewing art can improve observation, analysis, and communication skills.

The ability to communicate what it is we see, what we notice, what we perceive, what we think is important, and what’s capturing our attention is really what’s important to come out of this idea of looking at art. Understanding that no two people see anything the same way. If I’m going to help solve a problem, it is incumbent upon me to be able to articulate thoroughly, use economy of language, and share my perception of a certain problem.
