The Power of a Leader's Vision


Proverbs 9:19 "...where there is no vision, the people perish..."

Solomon's words here are one of the mantras that I try to live my life by to the fullest. It is imperative that any effective leader have and keep a clear vision of where they are, where they want to be a distinct path on how to get there. There are people counting on that leader. In many cases, there are families, organizations, corporations, countries and cities counting on the vision of that leader. There must be a vision.

A leader's power and voice are tied directly into the vision that he or she has set for those that follow them. If their vision is rich, exciting and viral, there will be followers. If their vision is weak, muddled or cloudy, there will still be people that follow them. The quality of the vision does not drive the followers loyalty. The leader will not fail. The absence of the vision is what causes the followers to perish. They must have something to follow.
