A manual for using visual and graphical tools for building, motivating and sustaining effective teamwork.

There are some good insights here. I particularly liked the simple observation that "pushing" information and content onto others (through closed agendas, packed powerpoint presentations and the like) leads to resistance and people drawing away. Conversely, tools for team leadership that "pulls" people in includes simple open frameworks, questions and interactive visualisations.

There are als
Admittedly I only did a skim read of this focusing on the highlights and pull outs.
Have already read the other two books in the "Visual" series so there is a lot of repeat, but repetitiveness in a way that makes sense, emphasizing different elements that supported the 'team' theme rather than the 'leadership' theme. Some elements went into much deeper detail here and it was great to get a better understanding of these elements I've been reading about elsewhere.
Loved the graphics. Took lot of ideas for my organization's meetings.

Not as good as the first, but still extremely helpful. You can't possibly squeeze everything you need to know about teams into one book, but Sibbet captures the core components of running a visual team well.
I like all of Daniel Sibbert's books. I am a person who communicates visually whenever I can and have since I could hold a crayon. Not as terrific as his first, but still really good.
