Quite clearly, from my leadership experience and Bob’s research, we agree that job number 1 for a leader is to inspire others – to incite and excite – to provoke and arouse others into action by sharing a compelling vision of the future.  Having a vision and sharing the vision is also very fun for the leader to do.

Spend just one day with me and we’ll map out your vision and plan for the next three years.  I promise we have a productive and enlightening day.
