Duty in Leadership
There are three divisions of duty in leadership. Leadership is driven by vision and hence there are phases in the birthing of a vision. These various phases require diverse sets of people shaped to take the vision through the stages of discovery, development and finally to it's manifestation.
These three categories of vision carriers are taken from the the statement "Write the vision, and make it plain on tables, that he may run that reads it.
Each phrase of the statement is a task assigned to each category of vision carriers.
Categories of visionary leaders
1. Inspired leaders: These are the highly sensitive and intuitive of the three categories. They always have their heads in the clouds and hence can capture ideas from the divine and write it.
When they are unable communicate what they have seen effectively, they are labeled as crazy.
Nevertheless, they are the dreamers who have the capacity to shape the future of institutions and nations when what they have seen is written to the right audience. Inspired leaders cause the vision to be revealed.
2. Interpreting leaders: These are the communicators of vision and are the right audience for every inspired leader.
These are optimists with eyes to the clouds and ears on the ground. They are good students of history and are abreast of current affairs.
They catch the vision of the inspired leaders and interpret them as relevant in the present.
They have an ability to cause men to understand dreams and visions, hence they are agents of transformation.
They take the written vision and paint pictures on the tables of men's hearts. They are good communicators with words, visuals and analytics.
They have the gift of words of wisdom to bring timely solutions at every crossroad in the birthing of the vision.
Interpreting leaders love to read wide and equipped with historical facts that help them avoid repeating mistakes as they navigate to the future. They release the vision to men.
