Inspire Your Team with Vision

The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I."  And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say "I."  They don't think "I."  They think "we"; they think "team."  They understand their job to be to make the team function.  They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit…. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done. - Peter Drucker

Employees must buy into you as a leader before they buy into your vision, and they must believe and trust in you to believe and trust in your vision! While the input of others is critical, know that the buck stops with you.  As the owner, you are ultimately responsible for the vision of your business.  Don’t underestimate the importance of creating your vision.  Your vision ultimately becomes your company’s direction, objectives, priorities, strategies, and tactics.  It is that magical and that important! Vision and values are the key to inspiring your team!

Dream the big dream; unleash your spirit. A bold, daring, super-sized vision, even if only partially achieved, yields greater rewards than a small, wimpy vision fully achieved.

What’s most important is not what the vision is, but what the vision does! How it impacts your team!

Grab hold of the future, bring it into the present, and then go about creating it.  Let your vision inspire, motivate, and fire up your team.  Small visions do not stir the soul.  Give people a reason to follow, something to shoot for.

Make the vision intoxicating -- something that captures their imagination.  Aim more for their hearts than their heads.  People change when their feelings change, not merely when their thoughts change.  Powerful visions unite groups and take them to new heights and places.

Make coming to work a meaningful and fulfilling event for your employees.  People want to work in a challenging and rewarding environment.  They want to learn, grow, and reach their potential – the full expression of their talent.

People are drawn to great leaders, great visions and great causes!
