A well-articulated, compelling vision can draw great talent. Learn about a compelling vision that will draw the talent you need to make it a reality.
- When Herb Kelleher was CEO of Southwest Airlines, he didn't mind if others figured out their business model because the Southwest difference was in its people and its culture. He was right and the proof came with excellent results. If you create a compelling vision in the environment conducive to achieve it, you will be able to say the same about your organization. As you've learned from our case study CEOs Karen and Mark, you can see that this work is challenging. Visionary leadership requires a combination of high-level thinking skills, and it may be daunting at times. But before you get discouraged, take a look around you. Wherever you are, whatever you see, began with a vision. Everything in our world that isn't nature started with someone's vision. People have been envisioning exciting future states since the beginning of time. It's a skill you can master, and there's no time like the present to get started.
