Recharge Your Team:
The Grounded Visioning Approach
By Jay W. Vogt
Leaders know that a clear vision motivates employees to achieve great things. But so often people, and organizations, lose focus, and their future gets hazy. People say, “We’re getting stale,” or, “I just don’t know where we’re headed.” Leaders know they need a vision to bring people together. And they know a good vision will renew enthusiasm and commitment. But they don’t how to make it happen.
Recharge Your Team not only shows leaders how to create a compelling vision in a collaborative way -it shows them how to do it in as little as two to four hours, even with a large group, using a time-tested, proven approach.
Welcome to Grounded Visioning. This approach helps teams, and large groups, create shared vision in a collaborative way with surprising speed and high levels of engagement. How?
As Recharge Your Team shows, the key is to be sure that everyone participates, and to ground the vision in how the team acts when it is at its very best, and to imagine a vision bold enough to inspire but practical enough to feel achievable.
Recharge Your Team describes the six quick but essential steps that ensure such results–with small teams or large groups. And any manager, not just trainers or HR people, can lead a successful Grounded Visioning session.
Grounded Visioning is a breakthrough concept of breathtaking simplicity and power that any leader can put to use today. It works, because it helps people remember how they are when they are at their very best, and frees them to share their dreams, hopes, and aspirations. As they soar, a vision naturally emerges that recharges the team.
