Long Essay Abstract / Summary:

For the vast majority of companies, having well-defined visions and mission statements changes nothing. The exercise of crafting them is a complete waste of time and talent if visions and mission statements are used for nothing but being published in the annual report.

One of the main reasons for the failure of missions and visions to achieve the desired objective is the naiveté of most company managers and executives. Nothing happens by magic. To be able to energize employees to work towards corporate objectives, visions and missions should be more than a sign on the wall. Executives and managers should live them, be seen living them, and constantly communicate them to their employees. Leadership is imperative for molding a group of people into a team, shaping them into a force that serves as a competitive business advantage.

Leaders know how to make people function in a collaborative fashion, and how to motivate them to excel their performance. Leaders also know how to balance the individual team member's quest with the goal of producing an outcome that exceeds the sum of individual inputs. Leaders require that their team members pursue the quest for personal best in concert with the team effort.
