A Look at Leading with Vision
Visionary leadership is a rich and significant phrase. It stirs up a sense of idealism, excitement, hope and courage. It is a phrase that inspires us to challenge ourselves to 'reach for the stars.' In short, visionary leadership is exciting.
Typically, people associate visionary leadership with the greatest and most influential people throughout history. Julius Caesar, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. are regarded as strong and effective leaders. Each had the ability to inspire others to buy into their vision. From Caesar's expansion of the Roman Empire to King's impact on the civil rights' movement, they each had a unique ability to see a future that would be demonstrably different than the present. That is what visionary leaders do.
In terms of corporate and organizational leadership, visionary leaders influence others to reach their full potential, thus creating profitable and sustainable companies and organizations. Steve Jobs, Sheryl Sandburg and Donald Trump are examples of modern day business leaders who have led with vision and have taken risks while doing so. In fact, Steve Jobs once said, 'You've got to be willing to crash and burn. If you're afraid of failing, you won't get very far. Most people never pick up the phone and call. Most people never ask and that's what separates the people who do things from the people who just dream about them.'
