Companies hire employees for their skills, experience, track-record and potential. And executives want new employee potential to be realized quickly to compete in today’s highly complex uncertain marketplace. Unfortunately, successful leaders in one context may not perform well in another without support from their managers.
Great leaders, like great writers, are visionaries who see beyond the present moment to possibilities and opportunities ahead. The most gifted leaders capture the imaginations of their employees as they paint vivid images of the future. With clarity, leaders show individuals how they can contribute to something greater than themselves.
