Do You Have a Vision?
February 20, 2020
Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
-Helen Keller

Roger Neugebauer, in an article called “12 Reasons People Love to Work for You” that’s included in the book Leading Early Childhood Organizations, describes a leader’s role in helping staff understand that they work for a “worthy purpose.” He writes:

“One of the responsibilities of the leader in any organization is to serve as the keeper of the faith. You need to have a vision for your organization that gives meaning to your work and inspires you to act.

If you have such a vision, this will not only inspire you, but it should inspire everyone who works in the organization. Directors I have observed who are committed to a vision exude intensity and excitement, which energizes everyone in their centers.

When people are committed to the goals of an organization, they will work hard to ensure that these goals are achieved. This is much more powerful than trying to build people’s commitment to you as an individual.”
