Small but powerful, Yoda trained the Guardians of Peace and Justice
These leaders brought me on board to help define and execute their Grand Challenges:
What is Visionary Leadership?
Visionary leadership is transformative. Once inspired, it penetrates the ordinary; it reaches through time into the future to bring out the very best the world has to offer. A visionary leader not only anticipates events, but actively influences the future. Visionary capacities are infectious; nurturing your own enables others to flourish.
Visionary leadership identifies challenges and growth opportunities before they happen, while positioning to produce extraordinary results that make a genuine contribution to the world.
Visionary Leaders are masters at analyzing the environment, scanning for untapped capabilities, examining unmet needs, mining core expertise, and sensing future potentialities. They’re adept at detecting larger patterns and predicting possibilities for collective impact. They spot new VIPs from whom to learn, as well as key partners with whom to engage—in substantive visioning; bringing together emerging trends and insights; and giving shape to what is possible in the near-term. Visionary leaders are good at leaning in and listening. They’re Jedis at facilitating leadership in others; true craftspeople at capturing chance, change, and opportunity; and the first in line to seize the right innovative strategy.
Visionary leaders are Jedis of the future.
