What is Visionary Leadership?

Visionary leadership is about more than having a great idea, it is about engaging the right people in the right ways to create the traction, buy-in, and enthusiastic engagement that leads to success. The five ways visionary leaders create success for big ideas are by:

  • Capturing ideas in a compelling, easy-to-communicate statement
  • Identifying Most Valuable Players, the people who can make or break your vision
  • Mapping the territory of change through strategic story-listening
  • Creating communities that accelerate the evolution of your idea
  • Generating dramatic surges in progress through strategic events

Qualities of a Visionary Leader

As a visionary leader, your mindset is both your greatest constraint and your most powerful instrument. That is why it is critical you begin dedicating time and inspired attention toward transforming yourself into a new leader. You must systematically and consistently identify your gap—owning your shortfalls and taking personal accountability for overcoming them. Work to name the obstacles you face so you can rise to conquer them, and begin channeling any fear you have into the energy needed to create unprecedented internal capacity. This commitment to self-transformation is the distinguishing quality that separates visionary leaders from all the others. Learn the secret to becoming a visionary leader.
