Visioning is a systems thinking leadership approach that enables and empowers leaders to make better decisions, solve problems and improve relationships with others. It is a sure-fire way to get clear about the future you want and is the key to an organisation’s uniquely successful community.
The vision for your company should be strongly supported by a more targeted strategy at each business level and should not be so restrictive that it limits your team’s imagination.
Finding the right balance between vision, the strategies that support it, and the freedom to be creative and imaginative in bringing the vision to life is the challenge for organisations.
