Visionary Leadership

What does it take to be a truly visionary leader?

What is it that makes a visionary becomes a visionary leader?

A visionary may dream wonderful visions of the future and articulate them with great inspiration. A visionary is good with words. But a visionary leader is good with actions as well as words, and so can bring his/her vision into reality in the world; thus transforming it in some way.

More than words are needed for a vision to take form in today's world. It requires leadership and heartfelt commitment.

Visionary leaders are the builders of a new dawn, working with imagination, insight and boldness. They present a challenge that calls forth the best in people and brings them together around a sharedsense of purpose. They work with the power of intentionality and alignment with a higher purpose. Their eyes are on the horizon, not just on the near at hand. They are social innovators and change agents, seeing the big picture and thinking strategically.

One more Barn Owl... a visionary leader must always can say.."YOU CAN DO IT". It is a kind of motivating his underhand, even though he understand that it almost impossible to be done. But he means that he committed to assist either you are tenggelam or timbul.. No follower means no leader what?

To be a good leader, you must start to be a good follower..
