A Book for Anybody that Leads: The Vision Driven Leader
Michael Hyatt has a brand new book that releases tomorrow called The Vision Driven Leader. I was able to read an early version of the manuscript over the summer. By applying the framework outlined in the book, Sugar Hill Church was able to effectively serve more peole than we have have.
Vision drives everything
It’s the essential ingredient for successful leadership. Unless you have a clear picture of where you want to lead your organization, nobody will follow you. But if your vision is compelling, people will apply their best thinking and effort to make it real, regardless of the obstacles or opposition you face.
So how do you craft that vision? How do you get others on board? And how do you put that vision into practice at every level of your organization? In The Vision Driven Leader, New York Times bestselling author Michael Hyatt asks ten simple questions to help you:
- craft an irresistible vision for your business
- ensure it’s clear, inspiring, and practical
- rally your team around the vision
- distill it into actionable plans that drive results
- overcome obstacles and pivot as needed
Based on Michael’s forty years of experience as an entrepreneur and executive, backed by insights from organizational science and psychology, and illustrated by case studies and stories from multiple industries, The Vision Driven Leader reveals what difference a vision makes and how to craft one for you and your team today.
