Daily Spark: Sight Without Vision
How important is vision to you? If you are a leader whether in work, at home, or in sports, it is a key quality of leadership. Without it, teams can begin to fall apart and become less effective, even team members becoming more individualized. But with it, with it you can be a part of some serious energy and progress.
