Great Leaders have Vision
Vision is not goals; it is what gives birth to goals. Vision is not just a dream; it is both dream and action. Vision is not sight; it goes beyond sight. Your sight can be obstructed by physical, social, psychological and spiritual barriers of the moment. But your vision can’t because it’s not what you see with the human eyes, but with the mind’s eyes.
Great leaders have a clear vision of where they want to take the company or organisation or country to. But that is not enough. They also know how to communicate such details to their team. A leader has to see and make others see the same thing he sees. The amount of illumination might differ but everyone should have a picture of what direction the organisation is headed.
The Holy Scriptures says that where there is no vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18).
So, it is the vision of the leader that drives, guides and preserves the team and the organisation. Without it, talents and indeed lives waste.
