You don’t have to be a fortune teller or a futurist to be a visionary leader. Becoming a visionary leader simply means that you have goals and are motivated to take the necessary action to achieve them.
Visionary leaders don’t sit around dreaming, hoping and wondering “what if?” They take risks, push the boundaries, inspire and encourage others to get involved and be part of the vision.
A great example of a visionary leader was Milton Hershey, founder and owner of the famous Hershey Chocolate Company. He experienced failure, setbacks and competition, but his resilience, curiosity and generosity made him a visionary leader and a successful businessman. He once said “My experience has shown me that the people who are exceptionally good in business aren’t so because of what they know, but because of their insatiable need to know more.”
You too can become a visionary business leader by taking some simple steps.
