Define vision and explain the concept of visionary leadership.
Vision is a clear sense of the future. It is a future that one hopes to create or achieve in order to improve upon the present state of affairs. But simply having the vision of a desirable future is not enough. Truly exceptional leaders are really good at turning their visions into accomplishments.
The term visionary leadership describes a leader who brings to the situation a clear and compelling sense of the future, as well as an understanding of the actions needed to get there successfully. This means having a clear vision, communicating the vision, and getting people motivated and inspired to pursue the vision in their daily work. Visionary leadership gives meaning to people’s work and it makes what they do seem worthy and valuable.
