“Vision is our deepest expression of what we want – the preferred future, a desirable state.” Peter Block
One of the key responsibilities of any leader is to cast vision. Vision is seeing in your mind’s eye a more desired future that motivates you to action in the present.
Vision casting is communicating from your heart and experience to others a picture of that desired future with emotionally compelling language and images that connect and engage the listeners.
Perhaps one of the greatest examples of vision casting is Martin Luther King Jr. Take 5 minutes and watch his “I Have a Dream” speech. If you want, before you watch, get a free download article here called, “The Leader as Painter: Communicating Your Vision Effectively”. How does Martin Luther King paint a picture? How does he cast vision?
