Moving beyond the “here and now” presents its challenges. Visionary leadership is rare. Hanz Finzel said, “The higher one is in leadership, the more their work is about the future.”
Our work involves seeing the future and preparing others to reach the goal(s). This requires us to consider a few questions.
Do we know where we are going?
What are our plans to reach the destination?
Are resources available to help us?
Have we assessed the abilities of everyone involved?
Leaders need an awareness of the present, but point towards a greater future.
