Vision defines about the future desired state that the individual or organization wants to achieve. It simplifies, focus and clarify the task of an organization for significant time (Cartwright & Baldwin, 2006). Vision is not just a dream. It is a dream with plans and actions to achieve. Vision shows the direction to the organisation. It is a base for effective leadership.
A vision should be brief, valid, clear and easy to communicate to the stake holder. A good vision has the features like imaginable, desirable, feasible, focused, flexible and communicable (Gill, 2012). While creating the vision, it must meet the stakeholder’s need and have a capacity of transforming into strategies which enhance the effectiveness and competitiveness of the organisation in the industry.
Sharing the vision through effective communication in a confident and attracting way to all the members of the organisation is essential to achieve it. I can achieve the commitment by communicating the vision in motivating way, speak often about it. Conducting surveys and asking their views if they understand it or not. We can create a shared vision by listening others very closely, rise their hopes and addressing their needs (Kouzes ; Posner, 2009).
A vision is an image of future. The vision is long term objective of any organisation. It should not be easily attainable. It needs some actions and perform various tasks to achieve it. The leaders should be effective, and peoples need to be more committed towards it.
The vision of the Generic group failed due to lack of continuous communication of the vision with the stakeholders and the lack of capacity to copes with the dynamic environment. The Generics vision could have been sustained if a leader is able to communicate regularly not only with the employee but also with all the stakeholders and needs to change the vision if required.
The Godly vision includes foresight, insight and oversight which originates from his sight. The people who are blessed with Godly vision have great wisdom ( Vallotton, 2009).
