What Happens When You're Not Invested in the Vision?
Regardless if the vision is for a specific situation - like an event or project - or for something larger like your business or organization or company, to be able to effectively drive change and lead, you must buy-in into the vision.
Your team and clients are looking to you to be excited about the vision and help them to understand it and why it's important.
If you're tasking others with projects or responsibilities that are intended to drive the vision forward, but your heart isn't in it, your team will know. Not only will this make it more challenging for your team to effectively do their jobs, it will create pressure on them to help you get on board with the vision, when it's really the other way around.
Your job is to remove the barriers for your team, and if you aren't fully bought into the vision, then it's essentially adding a barrier for your team to overcome.
It's a barrier you need to remove, but once you do, your team and clients will feel the difference. They may be hesitant at first, but they will be more willing to do what they need to do and be more engaged doing it.
Your level of engagement and enthusiasm is infectious, so ensure that it's at the level you want to see from your team and clients.
