How many of you are thinking of Monty Python right now? Minor geek check there.
But, seriously, where are you headed? Do you have a goal in mind or are you wandering aimlessly?
If you are a leader (the “if” shouldn’t be in question), having a goal and a vision for how to get there is essential in directing your organization toward success.
Disney has learned (yes, I’m talking about them again) that leading by example delivers tangible results. I wrote this down on day 1 of my Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence course from Disney Institute. I had no idea that one of the facilitators of that course would turn out to be a mentor and a close personal friend.
He wasn’t the originator of that idea. However, he has taught me (and anybody else who will listen) that someone is always watching. He knows that communicating your vision sets the direction of your organization and inspires passion in those you are leading.
So if you know where you’re headed, how are you communicating that to those who will follow you?
“The noblest search is the search for excellence.”
