Event Details

Please join us on Thursday, May 15 for the second presentation in the Leadership Management Council's 2014 Excellence in Leadership Series!




The vision provides a clear path for the organization to take and creates a realistic, credible, attractive future.
 
Vision provides the impetus for organizational leadership. Vision gives life, purpose and direction to the organization. Vision can be described as a “mental model” or “conceptual representation” of an organization’s future. This vision is used to understand and guide the organization’s actions.
 
This presentation will provide insight into shared characteristics among practitioners as to the definition of what vision is. We will explore the concept that:
• Vision is about the future.
• Vision induces people to act toward a common goal.
• Vision provides a sense of direction.
• Vision is important for strategy and planning. 
        
The focus on leadership has shifted from traits and leader behaviors to the need for leaders to articulate visions to their followers. This is particularly important for those organizations undergoing major change. Vision is no longer construed as a trendy concept, but it is now considered as being a fundamental attribute of effective leadership. This can be seen as the basis of one’s power to lead.
  
The presenters of this seminar are esteemed members of the Medaille College’s Leadership Management Council. Both presenters are leaders in their organizations and have practical knowledge of the importance of understanding and carrying out the vision for their agencies.
 
Executives, division leaders and other senior managers involved in creating or executing the vision of the organization are best suited for this offering.
 
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” ~ Book of Proverbs
