INSPIRE A SHARED VISION
Show others how their long-term interests can be realized by enlisting in a common vision.
In your next meeting, discuss the vision for your team. Share your view of the current state and your vision for the future state. Ask team members to share their ideas so the vision becomes a shared vision for the team. Follow up by asking each team member to describe the role they see themselves playing in support of the shared vision.
Food for Thought:
Leaders imagine exciting and ennobling possibilities for the future and communicate their hopes and dreams so that others clearly understand and share them as their own.
