Creating Vision

It’s another Friday.

Another day. Ending another week. Coming to the end of the summer.

You wake up. Leave for work. Grab your (much needed) coffee. Manage more tasks than you thought you could. Have a meeting about something that’s not going right. Schedule a follow up meeting to address the issue. Go home. And, do it all again the next day.

As the vacations are wrapping up and we are bracing for the (long) hall of work until Thanksgiving, it can be easy to let the routine of life begin taking over.

Chances are, you are not the only one feeling this way.

Sure, your bosses have vision and purpose for what they are doing. But what about you? And, what about your team?

Vision is what gives you and your team direction on where you are going and why you do what you do.

Creating a personal and team vision gives purpose to the day in and day out routine.

Ready to create your vision statement? Consider these questions:

  • What is the thing that inspires you to be the manager you are?  
  • How can you use what inspires you to inspire your team?
  • What are you proud of?
  • What do you want to accomplish together?

This week, let’s carve out 15 minutes to answer the questions above and begin creating vision for your team.
