“Great vision precedes great accomplishment.”
Every team needs a compelling vision to give it direction. A team without a vision is, at worst, purposeless. At best, it is subject to the personal agendas of various teammates. As the agendas work against each other, the team’s energy and drive drain away. On the other hand, a team that embraces a vision becomes focused, energized and confident. It knows where it’s headed and why it’s going there.
