“There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says, ‘Morning boys. How’s the water?’
And these two young fish swim on a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes, ‘What the hell is water?’”
It’s hard to build a vision when you don’t even realize you’re swimming in water.
The antidote is simple, but not easy.
To build a meaningful vision you have to disrupt yourself.
How might you get out of your “normal” routine? Do you think Fortune 500 CEOs build their vision while at work dealing with urgent?
Or do they invest in themselves, their organization, maybe even a coach, in order to work on the significant?
Many visions are built when leaders get out of the normal day-to-day operations and get into nature. It’s there with nothing but a journal and a pen that our minds feel free to roam and dream.
Even better: connect with other world-class leaders who are on a similar journey. Leaders who want to push and be pushed.
Lucky for you, that’s exactly what we are doing this summer at “Bollingen Tower.” Join other leaders from around the world and do the hard work of crafting a vision in a magical place with mountain views embedded in nature.
Remember, “Everyone wins when a leader gets better. Everyone wins when you get better.”
