INSPIRE A SHARED VISION
Paint the big picture of what you and your team aspire to accomplish.
Create a collage where all the team members contribute a picture (or pictures) that illustrates what they personally aspire to. Draw from these visual themes to create a message that conveys a shared vision for the group.
Food for Thought:
Think of the big picture as analogous to the image on the box top of a jigsaw puzzle. Effective leaders help everyone see that they each hold a piece of the puzzle that contributes to creating the whole.
