"What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from." - T.S. Eliot
'Vision', 'big picture', 'dream' ... Whatever the name, the outcome is the same ... the end. It is the result we would like to see as the reward for our effort. A leader inspires by sharing the big picture and fostering a desire to make the dream a reality. By starting with a clear picture of the end in mind, the leader has the ability to chart the course to achieve it. To take this trip, the leader needs the right team and the right vehicle. The leader is charged with selecting the right team and enroling that team in the vision.
What criteria did you use to select your team? How do you know you have the right mix?
How did you get your team to buy in to the vision? Are they motivated to make it a reality?
