This book will explore how leaders can support strategy formation, business planning, communications, and organization change through application of visual meeting, and visual teams methodologies organization wide-literally "trans-forming" communications and people's sense of what is possible. This is NOT a book about personally being able to draw and be artistic, but how to use the emerging visual literacy to full advantage in the workplace. It is written for all levels of leadership in organizations, from department heads through directors, heads of strategic business units, and "C" level executives. The book shares well-tested methodologies for visually developing strategic and operational plans, and the arrays of visual methods and tools that are available for implementing these strategies throughout an organization. A thread will be that these tools are also some of the most important for young entrepreneurs starting businesses. Chapters on emerging technology will explore how communications has become interactive and graphic-and transformative in its own right. Knowledge of how these developments are reshaping organizations is essential to success as a contemporary leader at any level. These tools, if understood, can be used to shape direction and align people for implementation. It's helpful to know what type of organization he or she is leading, and understanding some of the general dynamics applying to these types. Visual Leadership will deal with the question of how design thinking and visual literacy can help in orienting leaders to the complexity of contemporary organizations in the private, non-profit, and public sectors. Throughout, as in Visual Meetings and Visual Teams, tools, methods and frameworks are brought to life with stories of real organizations modeling these practices. One of the differences will be focusing on how leaders can enable others to use these tools, and how to create the kinds of directives and guidelines that lead to success.
