How to Doodle a Leader
If someone asked you to visualize a LEADER, what would you draw? How could we represent this in a simple way? Let’s take a look. Begin by drawing an icon of a person in the middle of your page. Use an oval shape, two curved lines and a straight line.
Let’s give our person some more details. Use a combination of oval shapes and curved lines to draw the arms and the tie of our leader. Then for the mouth, use a straight line. This icon of a person will become our leader. However, we must now visualize the idea of LEADING.
Let’s now draw four smaller people icons above the leader. Use a combination of oval shapes, arc shapes, and straight lines. Notice how the size of these icons is smaller than the size of our leader.
Let’s now show that these people report directly to our leader. Use arrows for this purpose. Also, draw three lines above the leader’s head that signify that the focus is on him/her.
Add the finishing touches to your doodle by giving it some color. And there we have it. This is our visual representation of a LEADER. But this is one of a multitude of ways we could visualize LEADERSHIP. How many other ways can you think of?
