Good leaders have the ability to develop a vision of where their organization should go, how it should get there, and how resources should be aligned to realize that vision. They also have the skills to communicate the vision to other members of the organization in a manner that inspires them to subscribe to the plan in a way that will outlast the emotion of the moment.

First, make sure you have a clear understanding of where you want to go by writing down what your organization will look like, in as much detail as possible. Second, identify the intermediary steps required to get there. Third, recognize the attainment of each intermediary step to reinforce the vision with the other members, and to recommit them to the cause. Finally, celebrate when your goal is reached and use the event to introduce your next vision.
