The Leadership canvas is a tool for groups of people who have already recognised that classical, hierarchical leadership is no longer the most efficient way to achieve goals in a VUCA world, but have not yet introduced changes. Similarly, the canvas is a tool for those who live distributed leadership but have not yet formulated and written it down for themselves.

A group of people can be a team, a project or a whole department. The size of the team does not matter. Classical leadership is defined here as: Decisions are made according to position in the organisational hierarchy.

Each step in the development of the canvas should be understood as an iteration. Thus, it should be questioned, put to the test and sharpened until it comes as close as possible to the group’s understanding.

The result of this process is the visualisation of the group understanding of leadership. This visualisation serves as a working basis for the group’s internal leadership work and its further development.


Methodically supported process to develop an understanding of “distributed leadership” in a group. Visualisation as an internal communication tool and as a link to surrounding groups.

Success is not the result of planning, but a natural consequence!
