Visionary leaders are able to imagine the future. They are able to close their eyes and clearly see how their organization should look, feel, and function. A high-performing visionary leader is exceptionally good at setting goals to meet the vision and align their teams to meet those goals. They also support their staff and look at the long-term plan – not the fly-by-night, cost-reduction measures that typical management firms come in and suggest. That is why visionary leaders are a tremendous investment for organizations.
