Focusing on the Preferred Future

People usually have absolute clarity about what they do not want; the challenge of leadership is to help people define with precision and accurac

y what they do want.  When we help others see what could be, we develop inspiration and aspiration that challenge and promotes breakthrough thinking and actions. ~ Susan Scott, Fierce Conversations (2002)

The above quote gets right to the challenge: many regional areas, communities, work places and even families find them selves in – focusing on the perceived problem or problems at the expense of focusing on the preferred future.

If we really want to make things better – then being a person with a clear, concise vision trumps being a ‘problem spotter’.  The future requires people willing to embrace it and it’s potential.
