Vision Sharing and Leadership Succession

  • Ruud Weijermars


The search for company goals and value is actualized through missions and objectives. A vision statement supports the ‘vision’ of how your business or organization wants to be seen. It clarifies aspirations and intentions, values and beliefs. Some call it ‘core ideology.’ But explaining what your organization intends to do—and why—is not enough. You need to find ways to get everybody involved and motivated to build Organizational Intelligence with you. Vision Sharing is a top down and bottom up process. Good leadership finds swift ways to achieve the effective Vision Sharing which preceeds knowledge sharing.
