Visioning the Future- A key component of #LeadershipFlow
All great endeavors start with a vision, whether it is leading a team to increased sales or steering an organization in a bold new direction through uncharted waters. But, Visioning is more than just declaring a final destination; the technical knowledge that got the leader to their position is the easy part of the equation. It is the motivational essence of the vision, the moods and emotions that will create the power to accomplish the vision. It is the role of leaders to tap that human aspect of a vision to bring it alive. Visioning is always about the feelings it evokes in its followers. Leaders must develop the ability to recognize the positive behaviors they want to see.
Committing to the vision can be difficult. Pressures from the market, conflicting guidance from their superiors and self-doubt can cause leaders to reject their own vision, preventing it from coming alive. But when that essence is tapped and communicated, great things are possible. It is the role of a leader to make that happen.
