Breathe the Vision

Leadership is such a buzz word. To hear of another leadership book almost makes me want to take a nap. Still, the importance of it is immense. My question to you is this:


My definition of a leader by title is someone who is a surface leader. There is no cause deep in their heart that they are passionate about leading towards…they simply have a title. A leader by action is someone who breathes vision. They are very passionate about something; therefore, they have to lead. If they don’t lead towards a certain cause they would feel like failures. The importance of the cause drives them to feel responsibility for making it happen. The greatness of the cause compels them to bring others along.

These are leaders worth following. Are you breathing vision?

  1. Vision is incredibly important, and as you say, it has to permeate everything the leader does. My co-author and I wrote a chapter on vision in our book, and the companion website has a number of supplemental exercises and articles on vision. Okay, the shamless plug, more information about the book and vision exercises at http://www.pokerleadership.com – Raymond
