Developing a Vision for Your Team

Developing a Vision for Your Team
So we’ve talked about what you say to create and communicate a compelling vision, to motivate and inspire people to want to get behind that vision. You have the three questions. You have the check list. You’ve seen examples and now you’ve applied those tools those frameworks to your own team. Now what I want to do is transition to the how you communicate that vision. So transitioning from what you say to content, the substance, to how you say it to style. I’m gonna begin by sharing with you a video. It’s a video of someone who’s communicating to their audience, their employees.
Ultimately, you get to decide whether or not this is how you would want to communicate, or how you might not want to communicate. The video is of someone who I’ve had the opportunity to interact with Steve Ballmer, the former CEO of Microsoft, and here you see us working with him on a new leadership development application that we were developing. And Steve is one of the most gregarious, most extroverted individuals I’ve ever met. A very passionate individual. The video I’m gonna share with you is a collection of videos that are taken of him interacting with either Microsoft employees, developers who are developing for the Microsoft platform, or otherwise.
And I want you to pay attention to what you see him doing in terms of how he is communicating. Not necessarily what but what’s the language he’s using, what’s the verbal and the nonverbal language? And what’s the meaning of that language to you, what meaning does it communicate?
