How Do You Inspire a Shared Vision?


How Do You Inspire a Shared Vision?What is your vision for your organization? – Do you know? Can you state it seamlessly and flawlessly? What can a “Vision” be? Well Kouzes and Posner give us this; “a vision is an ideal and unique image of the future for the common good”. To share that vision, we should “envision the future by imagining exciting and ennobling possibilities” and “enlist others in a common vision by appealing to shared aspirations”. How do we do that? In This week's video I start the next series of vlog posts on just that. This week, how often do we talk to our direct reports (or anyone for that matter) in our organization about future trends and those might influence how our work gets done?
