Articulating your Leadership Vision

  1. 1. Articulating Your Leadership Vision Presented by &quot;Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.“ — Warren Bennis “ You want to set a goal that is big enough that in the process of achieving it you become someone worth becoming.&quot; — Jim Rohn “ Dreams are extremely important. You can’t do it unless you can imagine it.&quot; — George Lucas “ Vision without execution is hallucination.” — Thomas Edison “ What could be worse than being born without sight? …Being born with sight and no vision.” Helen Keller If your vision is for a year, plant wheat. If your vision is for a decade, plant trees. If your vision is for a lifetime, plant people. - Chinese Proverb The future does not belong to those who are content with today; rather, it will belong to those who can blend vision, reason, and courage in a personal commitment. -Robert Kennedy “ The power of transcendent vision is greater than the power of the scripting deep inside the human personality and it subordinates it, submerges it, until the whole personality is reorganized in the accomplishment of that vision.” -Steven Covey I resent the limitations of my own imagination. -Walt Disney
