As a leader, you know you’re responsible for the vision of your company. And you have one—sort of. It exists in the back of your head, but it’s really hard to get it down on paper. There never seems to be enough time to do it. And, when it comes right down to it, you’re not all that sure why it matters.
It’s hard enough to keep your business going from day to day. Who has time for navel gazing?
If there’s one thing we’ve learned with over 50 years of combined business experience, it’s that vision matters! Rather than thinking of it as another task on your list. Start to see vision as a tool for creating the future you desire.
In this episode, we’ll show you four ways that having a clear vision gives you a strategic advantage over your competition. When we’re done, you’ll know exactly how important this process is, and you’ll be dying to turn off the podcast and start writing a vision script of your own!
