Back in August I made a trip to Long Beach and rode along with a friend's mother-in-law who talked with me about the leader of her church. As we talked about her well known pastor, I heard her repeat over and over that her pastor was a "visionary."
Isn't that what leaders are to a certain extent? Leaders are visionary.
Not only are they visionary, but their vision is much larger than what they are capable of accomplishing on their own. That's what attracts people to them. The bigger the visionary leader, the bigger the vision, the bigger people that will be attracted to the vision.
Big visions attract big people.
As a leader, are you a visionary? Do you take regular time to think, dream and develop your vision?
I recently read Andy Stanley's book, Visioneering: God's Blueprint for Developing and Maintaining Vision. It's probably the best leadership book on vision that I've read, and recommend it to you.
