Have you defined a vision for your company and shared it with your teams? A shared vision enlists others in the work and provides guiding principles for day to day activities.

If you're ready to start this work on behalf of your organization, join Ed Kless to make this part of your 2015 action plan.

How have other people done it successfully? What do we want to create together?
