If you're like the average business person, you want to be less stressed and more productive in your work. And you need help!

Most organizations have a vision statement somewhere in a file or on a conference room wall. Yet, unfortunately, these vision statements seldom serve as an energizing guide toward exponential growth and remarkable success for the organization. A vision is energizing. It's enlivening. Vision is the guiding motivation for all great human efforts. My problem was not vision - I didn't understand how to get focused and stay focused on the vision. I was not communicating vision effectively. To address these challenges, I developed a tool to help me think through and write out my vision. My experience a business vision was transformational. Realizing the importance and potential of the business vision tool for leaders in diverse markets, I compiled my experiences and the process into this simple, step-by-step guide. In reality, Creating Your Business Vision is less a book and more a career planning experience. I intentionally made it short so you could read it in one sitting. In the book, I will coach you through: 1. The story of a struggling leader and how to find clarity on what matters most in your work. 2. The basics of vision and how to create a career, position, team, or organizational vision. 3. A four-step process for identifying where you are NOW, and how to get from there to where you want to be. 4. A step-by-step process for leading your team through vision development 5. Planning templates, Word documents, and PDF documents that will make it easier for you to create your plan and keep it up-to-date. You can do it! I now have greater clarity and purpose in my work than ever before. And I'm able to create very specific plans to move toward the enormous goals of my vision - daily, weekly, quarterly. Creating my business vision the best business decision I've ever made. And it will be for you too! Praise for Creating Your Business Vision: "All my life I have worked for others and their vision statements. Michael's book helped me understand how important it is to have my own vision statement." - Eloise Williams "Michael's writing is vivid and simple to follow." - Steve Banhegyi "Very informative and insightful!" - Haven Hawk, Executive Coach "Creating Your Business Vision helped me to improve my team. It was a great help!" - Gracie Caasi

America faces a 21st century challenged by military and political competition with the Soviet Union, terrorism in the Third World, and economic competition with Asia and Europe. Our weaknesses are due as much as anything to our lack of strategic vision. We lack effective systems for systematic, long-range planning and an ability to think about long-range agendas for large institutions. This book is a key building block to development of American strategic vision, long-range planning, innovation and thinking about the future. The effort to look at the Air Force experience, to consider a surprise-free future for dealing with the Soviet Union, and to outline the fundamental questions of an introductory model for long-range planning will be helpful to everyone who is concerned about America's defense establishment and about America's future.

What does it mean to lead with vision? In the first book devoted entirely to vision as a key leadership principle, the authors delve deeply into the notion that a compelling vision that motivates and inspires is a true differentiator for organizations that want to hire and retain talent, be more competitive, and thrive in uncertain times. But a compelling vision on its own is not enough, which is why the authors, sought-after leadership development experts globally, provide readers with detailed analysis of the essential things leaders must do to effectively engage the workforce around that vision: embody courage, forge clarity, build connectedness, and shape culture. Leading with Vision draws on quantitative data from the authors' research of over 400 companies supplemented with real-world examples from thoughtful leaders who exemplify the core principles of leading with vision in established companies, including: Olukai, Bumble Bee, Coresystems, Jimbo's, Bunge, and more. The book also includes an actionable blueprint developed by the authors that leaders and their organizations can implement on day one of their journey.

Much like Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences, Maulding-Green and Leonard have, in Leadership Intelligence: The Journey to Your True North, postulated a theory regarding the age old question, ‘are leaders born or are leaders made?’ This theory is predicated on the idea that there is a genetic predisposition toward leadership via the vehicle of imprinting. The five critical factors which undergird the tenets of Leadership Intelligence, are delineated and developed through the lens of the soft skills of a leader. There is further clarification as to why some leaders seem to have ‘a greater intensity’ of these factors than their peers. To aid the reader in relating to the theory, a conceptual model based on a GPS is threaded throughout each chapter interweaving both examples and understandable content. The model relates keeping the organization moving in a true north fashion. The final chapters reveal how a leader can develop or enhance these skills and how he/she can avoid leadership derailment, due to neglecting them.

An Innovative Tool for Enhancing Vision Skills Throughout 25 years of leadership research, bestselling Leadership Challenge authors Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner have consistently found that Inspire a Shared Vision is the practice that differentiates leaders from other credible people. They've also found that, for most leaders, it is the toughest practice. Vision is one of those words that evokes ridicule and awe, cynicism and mystery, confusion and inspiration. It's one of the most misunderstood words in the leadership lexicon. In The Leadership Challenge, vision is defined as: An IDEAL and UNIQUE IMAGE of the FUTURE for the COMMON GOOD This hands-on workbook is designed to help you get more comfortable and stronger at Inspiring a Shared Vision. It will guide you through the process of developing a clearer picture of that ideal future, and then it will help you to communicate it more effectively to those who can help you implement it. In addition, the workbook contains sections that will enable you to make your team a more forward-thinking group and your organization a more visionary place.
