Many leaders throughout distribution get caught up in the day-today and lose sight of what is possible. Great Leadership & Professional Development begins with vision. As a leader it is incumbent upon you to clearly define a future reality - what you and your team are ultimately working towards. Your ability to craft a meaningful, inspiring, and relevant vision is the difference between stasis and change, plateauing and growth, triviality, and significance. In this course you will explore why visions are so important to Leadership & Professional Development, how to craft your vision, and how to effectively keep your team’s eye on the future as they perform today. By the end of the course you will have mapped out the outline of your vision.
