Visionary Leadership Qualities

I am all for dreaming, some of the most unlikely and impressive things have been done by dreamers. But one characteristic of the dreamers I respect - Francis Ford Coppola, Steve Jobs, folks at Pixar like Ed Catmull and Brad Bird - is that they have a remarkably deep understanding of the industry they work in and of the people they lead, and they are willing to get very deep into the weeds.
They have a very good understanding of BOTH the industry big picture and the tiny details.
Their ability to go back and forth between the little details and the big picture is evident in the leaders I admire most. Some aren't usually thought of as dreamers.

Visionaries Befriend All Stakeholders

And I think of an added, necessary detail, follow-on: How does such a leader achieve this "sort of vision!" There's one aspect I love: they regularly spend time listening ONLY LISTENING to "the folks at the coalface." They're intentionally humble enough to get out of the ivory tower to be with frontline folks who have an entirely different and much-needed perspective. 27-8-2021
