In the beginning, you share your dream with others and persuade them to take a leap into the unknown. You have a vision for how to make something better, but you need others — maybe your employees, partners, customers, or investors — to follow you and help you make it happen. So you act as a torchbearer, illuminating the path from here to there by helping them understand where they are headed and what the journey ahead will look like. You describe your vision vividly and compellingly so that your fellow travelers long to see it become reality. Many CEOs deliver vision speeches at the beginning of each year that serve this purpose.
Fouad Bendris’s insight:
At the end, you and your cohort arrive at the new destination. When the dream becomes reality, everyone deserves (and needs) a victory dance.
