The ability to paint a picture of the future that is compelling for your team is paramount. To illustrate the power, a little story!

Major James Nesmeth was an average golfer befor he went to the Vietnam war. There as a prisoner trapped in jail he played golf every day in his mind - playing the perfect game. When he returned from the war he had not played for 7 years. He shot a round of 74!

The more you visualise what you want to achieve, the more your brain translates that into a reality. Set out what success will mean to you and your team and talk about what it will look like, what it will feel like, what people will say, how the roles will change....and you will be amazed at how that becomes reality.
