Some leaders admit they’re uncomfortable with the conceptual thinking involved in visioning.

Creating a compelling vision can seem like an extremely difficult task.

But it doesn’t have to be.

The act of engaging your team in the process can make the process easier which leads to a better, more inspiring vision.
