Four types of vision:
- Vision of what is: the good, the bad… and the missing.
- Vision of possibilities: seeing what could be, or what could stop being. Having a sense of contributing factors and probabilities.
- Moral or ethical vision: knowing which possibilities should be, and which you will take responsibility for changing.
- Judgement: choosing a good way forward in light of 1, 2 and 3.
Each of these are helped by:
- Good stories
- Visual art
- Asking good questions
- Learning new skills
- Studying management
- Meeting new people
- Systems thinking
The list doesn’t end. Anything that enriches your hinterland helps to shape your vision and creates new possibilities.
