Visual Leaders by David Sibbet (Wiley, 2012) shows how leaders and managers can take full advantage of the visualization revolution. It explores seven essential tools that can vastly improve understanding and engagement across your organization: mental models, visual meetings, graphic templates, decision theaters, roadmaps, Storymaps®, and virtual visuals. Case studies demonstrate how visual practitioners and leaders use applied design thinking to foster engagement and align entire organizations on new plans.

Visual Leaders is loaded with examples of visual communications and formats that support visioning and strategy formation, planning, implementation, and organization change.

Now available in six languages: English, Bahasa Indonesian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

“This richly illustrated, full-color book explains how to enable collaborative thinking, innovation, and planning. In my work as a facilitator, I have used David Sibbet’s methods in many settings and organizations. Yet this book opened valuable new vistas for assisting leaders to focus the potential of their people on a common purpose.”

Susan Berry

“I have always been a big believer in systems thinking and visualization of data and concepts. Great ideas are far more likely to be acted upon if following a collaboratively developed picture of problems, solutions, and visions through the methods discussed in this book. I have been recommending this book to everyone I know whose goals include persuading and gaining buy-in to new ideas.”

Sandy Stojkovski

“David Sibbet is masterful in the art of visual facilitation, and Visual Leaders is another testimony to his talent. With words and visuals he explains the tools effective leaders can use to create a legacy.”
