Listen In -> Visionary Leadership with Marion Skeete #3: Inspiring and Catalyzing Change

Are you as tired as I am of hearing leaders complain about resistance to change?!

The leader is always right and the people are always wrong. It’s the leader’s job to effect change by bringing the people running gratefully out of their “wrong” and into the leader’s “right.”

Anyone who voices any practical or conceptual problem with the leader’s vision is labeled, “resistant to change.” It’s as if the story was about the leader!

Enter Marion Skeete of LegacyMakers International for week three of our discussion on Visionary Leadership.

What if the story, in fact, belonged to the community?

What if the unfolding future was comprised of the real life unfolding stories of the individuals, families, teams and organizations that leaders serve?

What if the only conversations about the future that might really result in change were those conversations that included the people who were themselves maturing into those changes?

Vision would not be something dreamed up by the leader in isolation and announced one day, but something already transpiring that the leader observes and articulates in such a way that helps the community interact, engage, and embrace.

What if catalyzing change involved nurturing an already existing ember, rather than pouring fuel on a damp wood and striking a match?

Listen in.
