The Value of Vision

Let’s review the elements of the Science of Leadership that Chuck shared:

  • Vision
  • Strategy
  • Execution
  • Talent Management
  • Future Talent Management
  • Culture

In today’s episode, Chuck will briefly discuss Vision.

What is the difference between Vision and Mission?

  • Vision is “future-focused”. Mission is “present-focused”.
  • Vision tells us where the team is going.  Mission tells us where we are today.

We’ll deal with 2 crucial aspects of Vision:

  1. Determining Your Organization’s Vision

Suggestion: Gather a group of trusted and knowledgeable confidantes.  Share your vision with these clear thinkers and solicit their feedback. 

Key Question to Answer:  What are our greatest opportunities for the future?

2. Communicating Your Organization’s Vision

“Vision is a word picture of where we are going in the future.”

Remember:  Vision fades. Therefore, regularly communicate the vision to your team. 

“A carefully crafted vision has the ability to capture people’s imaginations as well as their commitment.  People will reprioritize their lives and lifestyles in order to be a part of a vision they feel called to.”  – Andy Stanley, VISIONEERING.
