The topic of today’s podcast is VISION, which is that unique, special, rare, aspirational and yet tangible ingredient of leadership only the most impactful leaders display, to the point we may conclude VISION is what makes their leadership so strong and impactful.
When we take a close look at the way people like Apple’s Steve Jobs, of Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew, and the many corporate and community leaders who have changed the world operate their business, we realize they couldn’t have achieved the extraordinary results they achieved without a clear and compelling vision.
You may wonder if creating a vision that makes a difference in the world is something anyone can do, and the answer is yes and no.
While ambition, positive thinking, and a desire to succeed may favor the development of a strong vision, they are certainly not enough.
With my guest today Dr. Oleg Konovalov a thought leader, author, business educator, consultant, and coach with over 25 years of experience operating businesses and consulting Fortune 500 companies internationally I will try to decipher the code that makes vision a reality.
Oleg is the author of the book The Vision Code, in which he reveals the secrets of building and executing a strong vision within any organization. Oleg draws together in one volume in-depth interviews with nineteen extraordinary global visionaries that represent a variety of industries and organizations. These leaders explain why a vision is needed, how to implement it, how to communicate it effectively, and how to live by it with integrity
The stories of the nineteen leaders reveal how to develop a compelling vision and follow through with it in order to inspire an entire workforce. When a leader taps into the power of "vision," he or she creates a more meaningful business experience and ultimately, a better life.
This interview will offer you guidance and inspiration in your journey as a leader and will provide you with words of wisdom that will trigger deep and meaningful reflection.
To be a visionaire you must be book-smart, street-smart and nature smart, says oleg Konovalov, and with it I let the music start.
