What Does Vision Have to Do With It?
Why bother with a personal or team vision when you work within an organization?
Vision is an essential part of the leadership conversation. You’ll be hard pressed to talk to a C-Suite executive who isn’t clear on their vision for the organization. But I don’t talk to too many leaders in the middle of organizations who have a clear picture of their vision for their teams. And I speak with even fewer “front line” employees who have one for themselves. Does this matter? What does it look like to have a clear vision when you’re sandwiched between the layers of a hierarchy or working away on the front lines just trying to get it all done? Aren’t we all supposed to be living the company vision anyway?
