Warren Bennis writes,the bookfills me with equal amounts of admiration and envy. For the first time ever, Nanus defines for us what 'the vision thing' is all about.
Successful leaders know that nothing drives an organization like an attractive, worthwhile, achievable vision for the future. Leadership expert and best-selling author Burt Nanus finally shows why vision is the key to leadership and demonstrates how any leader can use a logical, step-by-step process to create and implement a powerful new sense of direction in his or her organization.
Designed for individual leaders to develop their own vision statement, this book guides readers through the mechanics of forming a vision, guidelines for developing the scope of the vision, and processes for implementing that vision.
Visionary Leadership is an indispensable guide for leaders at all levels, from top executives to heads of divisions and departments, from large corporations to small businesses, from manufacturing and service organizations to government and nonprofit institutions.
