Leadership and a "DIFFERENT" Vision…...
While looking for information for the LE assignment I came across an interesting note about vision. The leadership book by Philip Sadler said that a vision has to be different, something that is not aldready someones vision. It has to be something which is not obious, and "a vision has to reframe the known scene.
But what I do not understand is why cant we adopt somes vision which has been successful in the past. If Jack Welch had a vision that he wanted a boundryless, diverse company where everyone ( each individual) feels that they have a say and which worked well for GE then why cannot I adopt a similar vision too if I become a manager.
MR.Obama has a vision of a America where everyone is united and equal, african american, white, asian american, latino american. Where everyone has all the rights, be it their ethinicity or their sexuality. No one is discriminated. Why cannot Mr.Gordon Brown have a similar vision.
Now you may argur that politics and business are two different things but I feel they are very closely related. Politicians have a great hand in deciding a lot of things related to the business and the economy. A good finance minister can really help businesses do well.
