An article “To Lead, Create a Shared Vision” appears in the January issue of Harvard Business Review.
In the piece, the authors remind us, “Leaders must ask, “What’s new? What’s next? What’s better?”—but they can’t present answers that are only theirs.
Constituents want visions of the future that reflect their own aspirations.
They want to hear how their dreams will come true and their hopes will be fulfilled.
One might draw this conclusion also from a recent analysis of nearly one million responses to the leadership assessment, ‘The Leadership Practices Inventory.’ The data tell that what leaders struggle with most is communicating an image of the future that draws others in—that speaks to what others see and feel.”
As I already stated before: create a context, connect, communicate, collaborate and collect commitment. And as alwasys do it compact, but act!!
