Because you cannot succeed alone, sharing your vision can help you engage others in achieving the outcomes you hope for. Crafting and expressing a heartfelt vision is an often-underused practice for leaders at all organizational levels—with and without titles. In this working session, participants will draft an authentic statement of their deep hope for the future, using a simple but elegant mode. The goal of sharing the vision is to inspire others to join in realizing that future and to reach for their own aspirations. The overarching goal of the session is to rekindle courage and determination to employ this powerful leadership tool for educators.
By the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:
- Understand the power of sharing of vision as a leadership tool.
- Be able to identify the key elements of a powerful vision statement.
- Be able to apply a 3-part model for engaging others in supporting your vision.
- Create a first draft of a vision statement for a specific project / team / organization.
- Identify opportunities to share your vision.
