Kouzes & Posner in their work “The Leadership Challenge” state that “Visions are images in the mind; they are impressions and representations.” As leaders we need to present our vision in ways that our direct reports and others can grasp it, to “draw on that very natural mental process of creating images”. How can you do that? Well for me one way is in repetition, repeating my vision in as many different ways and as often as I can. Once is not enough. In this week’s Vlog I use the example of attending networking events on a consistent basis to make connections, build relationships and to be consistent with my message – my vision – of who and what I do. What do you do? How Are You Enlisting Others in Your Vision?
