Leaders Are Marked by Vision

People-Man-TelescopeLeaders are marked by vision. Vision makes the difference between leadership and misleadership. Vision includes goals and strategies developed with team members. Vision dreams the most possible dream, not the impossible dream. Leaders recognize that vision gives direction while mission provides purpose. Vision should result in consensus but does not always develop by consensus. Leaders learn from the past, live in the present, and plan for the future.
