Product Description

What Visual Meetings did for meetings and Visual Teams did for teams, this book does for leaders

Visual Leaders explores how leaders can support visioning and strategy formation, planning and management, and organizationchange through the application of visual meeting and visual team methodologies organization wide—literally "trans-forming" communications and people's sense of what is possible. It describes seven essential tools for visual leaders—mental models, visual meetings, graphic templates, decision theaters, roadmaps, Storymaps, and virtual visuals—and examples of methods for implementation throughout an organization.

  • Written for all levels of leadership in organizations, from department heads through directors, heads of strategic business units, and "C" level executives
  • Explores how communications has become interactive and graphic and how these tools can be used to shape direction and align people for implementation
  • Brings tools, methods and frameworks to life with stories of real organizations modeling these practices

Visual Leaders answers the question of how design thinking and visual literacy can help to orient leaders to the complexity of contemporary organizations in the private, non-profit, and public sectors.

From the Back Cover

Access the visualization Revolution! Leaders and managers are immersed in new, dynamic media that need to be shaped and guided. Building on the bestsellers Visual Meeting and Visual Teams, Visual Leaders shows how leaders can take full advantage of the visualization revolution. It introduces the Sibbert/Le Saget Sustainable Organizations Model for thinking about the kind of organization you need to lead or change. Seven essential tools will help you raise your organization’s visual IQ and vastly improve understanding and engagement across your organization. Case studies show how visual leaders work with visual practitioners to align entire organizations on new plans. The book is full of examples of visual communications and formats. It include overviews and insights about how to use new digital media and shows the direct link between metaphors, mental models, and the strategies used to communicate across whole organizations.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I own... 4 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not one for blowing a trumpet for books, but this is an absolute gem of a book. I have owned for over three years and it is the one book I use again and again for comms and presentations.

It's clear and unambiguous style means you can dip in, be inspired and then go on your way. Absolutely love it and recommend it all the time to my fellow IT colleagues.

Many a project overview on A0 has been inspired from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring visual ideas 27 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am working on getting meaniful, creative ideas when relating images/smartart + pictures to the messages I want to covey when creating some presentations In this sense, this book is really inspiring! It also gives us ideas on how visuals can help us in different kinds of situations, for example: to enhace meetings, have better decision sessions, use graphic storymaps and how we can make people "see" what we mean . The book is colorful, well organized and easy/enjoyable to read. I actually felt that reading it helped my own ideas to come up to life! Really appreciated!
