Some leaders have the gift of communicating the dream in a way that captures the real spirit of what they’re dreaming. How’s this great Jack Welch quote?
"We want GE to become a company where people come to work every day in a rush to try something they woke up thinking about the night before. We want them to go home from work wanting to talk about what they did that day, rather than try and forget. We want factories where the whistle blows and everyone wonders where the time went, and someone wonders aloud why we need a whistle." From Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths And Total Nonsense (p. 205)
Now that is quite a vision…don’t you think? Isn’t that what all of us are really hoping for?
