Leading with a Sense of Direction

Remember the Monty Python skit about the 100-yard dash for people with no sense of direction—where everyone gathers at the starting line, the gun is fired, and the runners take off in every possible direction? It’s amusing to watch, but it’s not so funny if you’re a leader and your team is doing the same thing. That’s why it’s important for you to inspire a vision, get everyone on the same page, and work together to achieve strategic goals.

Crafting Your Vision

Do you need to establish a vision for your team but aren’t sure where to begin? Our partners at Wiley, publishers of the Work of Leaders® development program, offer ideas on their blog, including guidance on three key steps: exploring, being bold, and testing assumptions.

Actionable Tips to Improve People Management Skills

Leading with direction means helping your team get the job done. It means inspiring passion, capturing not just “mind share” but “heart share.” Good leaders recognize this and practice strong people management skills every day. Here are some of the things they do that you can do too.

Grow Valuable Leadership Skills with Work of Leaders®

If the leadership ideas we discuss above resonate and you want to learn more, we invite you to attend a public session of Work of Leaders® that we’ll host on March 12. In the daylong session you'll learn about building, aligning, and executing your vision. The program includes an online leadership assessment, so you’ll discover your own leadership style and how you can use your strengths to apply the concepts in your organization. The program is well suited for leadership teams, and we offer discounts for groups of four or more—so we encourage you to send several of your leaders.
