I’ve always been fascinated by Visionaries. Especially by Founders and Entrepreneurs who are bringing brilliant ideas and businesses into being.
What makes them so inspiring? What draws people and business to them?
How are they able to see beyond what exists and what others tell them is possible to create something entirely new?
Where do they even get their ideas from? That inspiration? That possibility for positive change for the world?
How do they have such certainty and clarity even before the rest of the world catches up and believes in what they are up to?
And how are they able to work in hyper speed so that they can produce more work in 24 hours than most people do in a week?
I’ve had the pleasure to see many visionary leaders in action and to work in their businesses with them. To observe first-hand what they do and how they create. To be in organisations like Jamie Oliver, NET-A-PORTER, notonthehighstreet, Browns fashion, DK Books. Organisations where they have broken the mould and created something that didn’t exist before the Visionary Founder came up with the idea and ran with it.
I used to see these visionaries as extraordinary. I used to think that they had something that the rest of us don’t have. I would see them operate in an entirely different way to others in their organisation and the rest of their organisation struggle to keep up with them!
But now I know that they were just the forerunners. And that the potential and possibility they hold is available to us all if we know where to tap into, where to live from. If we are able to live from a field of possibility and potential.
I’ve also been on a journey to claim the visionary in me – which I can see now that I have always been. I have always held a vision for life and business from when I started my business 15 years ago. I was talking about energy in business all that time ago before anyone else I know!
And the more I have claimed this space in myself, the more clearly I have been able to see and break down what being a visionary means and to be able to teach others to claim this for themselves and to create organisations full of co-visionaries too.
The world needs Visionary leaders and organisations right now. It’s time to make this the norm. To recreate the way we live and work.
The time is now.
