“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 you work with. In order to lead effective partnerships, you’ll need a strong vision and influence, and a good understanding of the wider context you work in.
