The Antidote to Ambiguity: Values-Based Leadership

The Antidote to Ambiguity: Values-Based Leadership | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

What is your mission statement? How many people in your organization have read it? Understand it? Remember it? BELIEVE IT? And, how many of those who remain after answering those questions have actually adopted it?

 

Management books universally extol the importance of a mission statement. I have both suffered through mission development exercises as a staff member and been hired to facilitate these sessions. The process goes something like this: a group of senior administrators lock themselves in a room for an extended period of time; they debate, compromise, and craft lofty prose until they finally unveil (white smoke from chimney) their UNIFYING DOCUMENT. Shortly thereafter, they proudly display their statements on websites, placards, and business cards, then sit back and wait for the wisdom to trickle down to the masses. Much to their surprise, little change occurs.

The 10-Minute Technique to Becoming a More Productive Writer

The 10-Minute Technique to Becoming a More Productive Writer | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

When it's compelling enough, the right vision feels like it pulls you toward your goals, making everything you do feel easier. But uncovering that vision doesn't always come easily...

 

Late last year, when I interviewed Brian Clark about his approach to productive blogging, he said something that really struck me as a writer.

 

Brian’s big on vision — he told me that he believed his vision for his online business was pretty much the key to his success as both a blogger and business owner.


As he said, “It feels really great when you do what you know needs to be done, because you’re getting one step closer to seeing your vision, in one form or another, coming true.”

 

Having a clear, compelling vision will instantly make you more productive — you’ll “know what needs to be done.”

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

Leaders' primary objective is to empower others to make decisions and take actions that are aligned with the organization’s vision, purpose, and strategy. These nuances are the softer side of leadership, beyond the technical skills that you have already mastered.

 

Leadership is the "eighth wonder of the world." It is better seen and felt than defined and said. It’s easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize.

 

The world’s most impactful leaders in all arenas, from business to government, understand the paradox that although leadership starts with the leader, it’s never about the leader. This wisdom should be emulated and applied by everyone who aspires to leadership.
