The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet. — Theodore Hesburgh
Vision casting is an crucial part of leadership. Fuzzy communication leads to unclear direction, which produces sloppy execution. Visionary leaders tend to deliver a lot of WOW and not enough HOW.
Great leaders create a clear link between the vision of the organization and everyday functions of the team. They show how the short term effects the long term. They are clear in their communication delivering a well-defined, expandable, and challenging vision that fits the talents of the team and creates an energy to achieve it.
CALL TO ACTION:
Cast a vision that fits your team’s giftedness and fills the room with energy.
