Inspirational vision; inspirational future
Inspirational vision; inspirational future.
With yet another large company going down amid accusations of corruption, mismanagement and incompetence, we will, yet again, ask why.
Yes, again, the same answers will be provided; yes, again they will be meet with universal agreement; yes, again, the day after tomorrow ‘business as usual’ will be resumed, and, yes, again, a few months later another company will go down in nearly identical circumstances.
What is the ‘business as usual’ that will be resumed? Oh, just the same old, same old:
Businesses being “run” by people whose only talent is playing the political game.
Organisations being “led” by those who have no idea about the most important parts of leadership.
Cultures being “managed” by those who have not the first notion of what culture is.
Corporations being “stewarded” by those utterly devoid of ethics.
It’s not that we don’t have the above knowledge, we do. What we lack is any structure to compel those in positions of “leadership” to learn and apply the knowledge. Our ongoing lack of any system to compel effective leadership costs our economy, huge amounts, over and over again.
Let’s take just one aspect of leadership, inspirational vision formation. Did the company concerned have an inspirational vision? You already know the answer to that question! What did they have? Any vision? You already know that one, too.
Surely a person who does not understand ‘ inspirational vision; inspirational future’ is un-appointable as a leader. SURELY!
Every shareholder wants the best possible performance from their investment. Some shareholders understand this link: inspirational vision; inspirational future. Surely no investor would appoint a leader who didn’t understand the link; who hadn’t demonstrated their ability to craft an inspirational vision; who didn’t have an inspirational vision for the company that they wanted to lead. Surely?
Alas, thousands of institutional shareholders do exactly that every day of the week. And then, when it all goes wrong, as it must, they are surprised to learn that everyone and their dog, knew, apart from them; everyone, they discover, was aware of the blindingly obvious observation: inspirational vision; inspirational future, (and its corollary: no vision; no future), as if it was some startling new discovery!
Of course, in the very best companies, the idea of having to compel leaders to lead by crafting an inspirational vision is a ridiculous notion; only the most effective leaders rise to the top. And they become the best because (among other reasons) they have sought out, learned about cutting-edge vision formation techniques, and have taken the time to master those techniques.
For instance, in the elite companies, ask any leader what a powerful vision must consist of and you’ll get a pretty good account. In the rest of the corporate population you will be fobbed off with a non-answer (a political side step) to the question.
If you are keen to be an effective leader, this will help.
