Foresight and Vision
There is a lot said about the role of a team leader and the need to for proper vision casting. Vision casting isn’t just all about painting a picture of the future but it’s also about helping the team understand what it will take to make that future a reality. Inspiration is required to face the costs and work ahead. Leaders who diminish the costs in the beginning will face a hard reality when the bill for the new future is due. Costs that are dismissed at the start of an endeavor, when the team leader is convinced of the need for the vision, will cost the leader credibility with the team.
