In the world we live in it would be difficult to imagine a world of leaders who could not foresee the role they play in shaping the functions of human behavior. Leaders must stand up as defenders of what is right even when it is unpopular; they have to be able to stand alone when all hell is breaking lose around them. Be that as it may, to have leaders who are unprepared and show themselves to be novices only corrupts the positions for which were elected to serve. We need visionary leaders in this twenty first century who find it easy to do the right leading by example for for others to follow.
A visionary leader is respectful of his team members. He empowers them to come up with different ideas that will help the organization to succeed. They will feel empowered knowing that their opinions matters. Give them the power of self worth. In other words, what I am doing or what I am contributing to matters. It is comforting when you can see that you play a part in making a difference in people’s lives.
It is not difficult to understand that a visionary leader must do his best to inspire others to succeed. You might be popular within your scope of associates but how much are you able to motivate others into a rightful way of moving forward while maintaining the success they were promised? Your job is to motivate everyone to greatness even if they might not see as you see. They must want in some way to be a part of the catalyst for change not the path to destruction and deception.
A visionary leader should be a good communicator; be able to get his point of view across while maintains a good balance in leadership. They knows how to verbalize their dreams and goals and do so to their team. In this age of social media, it is never the smartest thing to always go to social media before having an audience with your team. Communication is not a one sided thing. He most be a good listener. It is great to always involve your team in helping to reach your milestone while advancing your dreams.
I find that visionary leaders are also charismatic leaders. They possess a special Majic that makes you want to move on their words. To always criticize the mistakes of others is to turn off those who would have otherwise be an asset to you. Many leaders fail for lack of lack of foresight and self control. A leader is a good organizer being able to see their own weaknesses and put the right person in place to fulfill the roles that you might not be able to fulfill. Visionary leaders are risk takers. Failing to take risk can sometimes lead to failure. There are times when you have to stop thinking and get to doing even when you are all alone in your decision. Others might not always see what you see and they are alway skeptical of the move you make however, staying on course and fulfilling your purpose will help to convince them of your intents. Sometimes you have to gamble and take the risk in order to advance the cause.
Be strategic in your planning. Look at the market and the trends and be able to move at the right moment even when it is unpopular to do so. Define where the organization is headed and stay the course. You cannot be afraid to take risk. The good book say,“he that always observe the seasons will not sow.” Ignore the season and plant your seed even in bad times then when things turn around your will be the first to capitalize on the increase. Put things in place to give you the truss forward in success. In other words create an action plan for success. A visionary leader is willing to delegate responsibility. They do not think that they have to do it to get it done. They must possess trust in their team and realize its a team effort; if one succeed all succeed but if one fail, all bears the responsibility for failure.
Finally I saw he that observe the season will not sow and therefore, is not in the position to reap. The trends you set today will determine your success or failure tomorrow. Be a visionary leader and help others become great! Visionary leaders: inspire, motivate and give guidance and hope . They’re meaning makers. Happy twenty nineteen! Be motivated to to take the leap and jump to success!
