What about you?

Knowing what you want for your organization is so much harder than it seems. This isn't about building consensus-- though, clearly getting a group on board has it's own challenges.  But, instead, thinking through your own vision and aspirations and how you'll contribute to the mission is skipped.

 Too often, we pick up the ball where someone else set it down. And like disciplined, trained, professionals, we continue moving forward without asking the essential questions-- why, how, who?

I think it'd be a surprisingly high-impact exercise to select staff in different positions around the office and ask them to write out their vision and describe how it furthers the mission.  What do you personally want to see accomplished today?
