“Vision” for managers means thinking about:

  • How can I take forward my organisation's vision?
  • How do I ensure that my team share this vision, and are committed to achieving it?
  • How do I encourage performance improvement?

To evidence this leadership capability, you’ll need to look beyond day to day operations to strive for improvement, and harness the energies and expertise of your team and others with whom you work. In order to lead effective partnerships, you’ll need a strong vision and influence, and a good understanding wider context in which you work.
