Creating a leadership vision

What it takes to be a great leader, you may ask. Here’s something I found interesting – ‘Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple and it is also that difficult’.

When we ponder on what it takes to guide a group of people to grow great heights, together; we unravel a lot about ourselves – hurdles, barriers, gaps and lack of knowledge within us. In order to be a good leader, we must overcome these constraints. And how do we do that?

We all understand that a good leader not only needs to develop traits such as communication skills, empathy, positivity and timeliness; but also a vision for growth. Isn’t it?

So how do we go about creating this vision? Well, there could be many ways, however, the one I find interesting is to link vision with values. This can further help in reexamining future goals. 

Start by identifying some of the most important effects in your life – moments that defines who you are today. What are the positive outcomes you can take from each of them? Articulate hope they shaped your values. Now, draft a statement of your personal leadership vision. Let it describe the kind of leader you want to be and how it can influence your future goals. Now, that’s when a great leader is born! 

 Can you name a few of the impacts you could make to your future goals, say two years from now, and align it with your team, organization and the society at large?
