Mindmapping is a foundational skill to graphic facilitation. Once you start mindmapping, it's easy to get hooked, and even easier to transition into using more sophisticated visual methods. (Does that make it the gateway drug to graphic facilitation?)
There are tons of great resources out there on mindmapping. Here's a placemat which covers all of the basics of mindmapping. Feel free to copy, print, and distribute as much as you like!
