“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” Jonathan Swift
“A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.” Rosabeth Moss Kanter
“People are more inclined to be drawn in if their leader has a compelling vision. Great leaders help people get in touch with their own aspirations and then will help them forge those aspirations into a personal vision.” John Kotter
John Kotter and Rosabeth Moss Kanter are respected teachers of leadership. Jonathan Swift lived between 1667 and 1745 and was the author of Gulliver’s Travels. A leader can paint a picture of the future that is compelling and vibrant. A coach on the other hand is helping the client become their own self and one of the tasks for the client would be to create a compelling vision.
“Your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have” Paul Arden
