Visual Consulting: Designing & Leading Change shows how visual practice can combine with dialogue and change methods to get more creative and sustainable results. The practices that David Sibbet and Gisela Wendling describe can be applied to organizational and diverse, cross-boundary consulting projects. They pay special attention to both the outer structures needed to support a change project and the inner process dynamics of those experiencing the change.
Visual Consulting is written for visual facilitators who want to become skillful process consultants working with change, as well as for process consultants who wish to become more visual in their practice. It is also useful for managers and leaders who have been tasked with pulling off a major change in their organizations.
For people who face any kind of organizational or community change—driven by new aspirations, shifting circumstances, or developmental change—Visual Consulting provides a rich set of approaches for consciously leading people to a shared sense of “the new.”
