Another day, another balancing act…
When you lead growth and innovation, you constantly balance the brutal facts with the preservation of hope.
It’s hard and unsustainable without a clear vision.
It’s also not realistic without accepting the brutal facts - Hence the balancing act.
But, leading through growth and innovation is not a chicken or egg scenario.
Vision must come first.
To make your vision a reality, keep these 3 tips in mind:
• It must be clear, but not unrealistically so
• It must be simple, but with the appreciation of the complexities that will make it happen
• It must serve as a rallying point for your team, with an understanding that some may not be a fit for where you’re going
Often casting your vision for growth or innovation comes easy for driver and achiever personalities.
However, the leadership qualities to innovate and grow take a careful balance between driving and listening.
