(Above our our 4 Be Attitudes – Be Safe – Be Courteous – Be Engaging – Be Consistent)
If you are anything like me you love to read, hear about leadership in a concerted effort to grow and expand my own ability to lead I try to learn from every leader I meet. One of the things you hear all the time is that vision leaks. Actually talking about vision leaking must also leak because people (rightly so) talk about it often.
I had a conversation with our brilliant Albany campus pastor @garethgilpin and it got me thinking about putting the values of Uptown in icon format. I remind our volunteer staff every week what they are but I believe seeing them will take it to the next level.
Why use a visual modifier for your values.
- Helps them see and hear what our values are.
- Holds us accountable to our families – they know what we are supposed to be doing just knowing that they know will help us stay on our A-game
- Helps stop the leaking
- We are a graphic driven society and I believe that an icon can permeate our culture in a more pervasive way than words on a wall.
- Icons can tend to be well…..iconic
How do you stop vision from leaking? I would love to hear it.
