shared vision Why is this
important? Kurt Knoess, Jill Ahrens,
Sofía Holguín Gómez, Melissa Lorenzo, Matt Canby, Chris Fairchild A Vision What you see might not be what someone else sees Effective Leader Example: Martin Luther King Jr. "Leaders passionately believe that they can make a difference. They envision the future, creating an ideal and unique image of what the organization can become. Through their magnetism and quiet persuasion, leaders enlist others in their dreams. They breathe life into their visions and get people to see exciting possibilities for the future."
-Posner and Kouzes Leaders need to:
Reflect on past
Attend to present
Prospect the future
Have a sense of what
they value “I dream, I test my dreams against my beliefs, I dare to take risks, and I execute my vision to make
those dreams come true.”
-Walt Disney Enlist Others A shared vision is a view of some future state that is agreed upon and shared by others. What does having a shared vision
do for your company? It converts the company into 'our company'. Now....its time for an activity!!

To do this, leaders should:
Involve people from the start
Ensure that the vision is easy to communicate
Communicate the vision in various ways
Be passionately authentic about the vision The act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be 1. Use symbolic language 2. Create word pictures 4. Practice positive communication 5. Express your emotion Three essentials to enlisting others: 1. Listen deeply to others
2. Discover and appeal to a common purpose
3. Give life to your vision by communicating effectively, so that people can see themselves in it 7. Stories "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us."
-Marianne Williamson 3. Communicate a shared vision 6. Speak genuinely "Sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can."
-Vince Lombardi Even if a leader has a compelling vision, if it doesn't become everyone's vision, it will not be accomplished as intended. Converts the company into "our" company
Creates a sense of commonality across departments
Creates common identity and self purpose
Fosters risk taking and experimentation
Without shared vision, your vision may not reach its full potential
