Was George Bush ahead of his time when he dismissed “The Vision Thing?” Or are we missing an important opportunity to focus and mobilize our organizations and teams?
In 2011, I asked: is vision relevant? It generated a fascinating, thought-provoking conversation. Now in 2016, I am asking again. What's different today?

What do Cincinnatus, George Washington, and Howard Schultz have in common? They "give leadership" instead of "taking leadership."

The jump from individual contributor to a first-time manager is one of the the most challenging leaps one can make. It requires a complete shift in how you see your role and in how you deliver results. And unfortunately, most new managers are ill-prepared. I had the pleasure to catch up with my friend +Ken Blanchard to find out his new approach to this.

Rarely will you have the luxury of time to plan everything out before you start a new project or change initiative.However, jumping ahead with no plans is a recipe for disaster.
Instead of planning and then doing, try approaching it as an iterative process, as a planning doing cycle. Think of it as building the vehicle while you are driving it.

In looking for examples of true vision, we usually draw on the vision of a few great leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and JFK. But there are many ordinary people whose extraordinary vision have met this test. Terry Fox is one of them.
The true test of a vision is whether it continues to inspire and guide after the leader is gone. Only a young man, Terry Fox showed us what a real vision is

As more people choose a disruptive career path, we need to look at how our organizations are prepared to support this, or we will be facing lack of continuity through a revolving door of talent. It calls for a new employer-employee social contract and a radical revisit of how we organize to support personal disruption. Inspired by +Whitney Johnson's new book, Disrupt Yourself
Career mobility is a given. How prepared is your company to support career disruption and to use it to drive corporate innovation?
