Visionary Leadership – Are you heading to the same place?

February 28, 2010
Yesterday, my daughter, who is driving with her permit, headed towards a destination she envisioned. She asked me what lane she should be in, and I answered, “The right.” I detected a micro-change in her physiology, but said nothing. I then encouraged her to move over one more lane to the right. And she asked, “Why? That one exits and we want to go downtown.” It was then I realized we had two different visions of where we were heading. I thought we were going to the middle-school campus and she thought we were heading to the upper school. How often does that happen in your organization–where people are trying to behave in alignment with the vision they have and it is different than yours? Ask questions to find out if you are all operating with the same vision. Assume little.
