Webinar Overview
Business schools, leadership gurus, and strategy guides agree that leaders must have vision. The sad truth is that most don't...or at least not vision that compels, inspires, and energizes their people.

How can something so essential be practiced so little in real life? Vision may sound like a rare quality, unattainable by all except a select few, but nothing could be further from the truth. Anyone can expand their visionary capacity.

You just need to learn how.

Rob-Jan de Jong will show you that in order to develop vision you must sharpen two key skills

The first is the ability to see things early, spotting the first hints of change on the horizon. The second is the power to connect the dots-- turning those clues into a gripping story about the future of your organization and industry.

You will be able to develop skills that will help you look ahead and explore many plausible futures - including his trademarked “Future Priming Process,” which helps distinguish signal from noise.

You will also discover how to:

1. tap into your imagination and open yourself to the unconventional;
2. become better at seeing things early and frame the big-picture view that provides direction for the future; and
3. communicate your vision in a way that engages others and provokes action.

When you anticipate change before your competitors, you create an enormous strategic advantage. That's what visionaries do...and now so can you.
Presenter: Rob-Jan De Jong
Rob-Jan de Jong is an international speaker, writer and consultant on strategy and leadership themes. He serves as an expert lecturer at various leading business schools such as the Wharton Business School (USA), Thunderbird School of Global Management (USA), Nyenrode Business University (The Netherlands), and Sabanci Business University (Turkey).

As a behavioral strategist, he speaks, teaches and consults on executive subjects such as visionary leadership, influence, strategic decision-making, and innovation. He is primarily interested in the interaction between strategic subjects and the human, psychological factors at play in the strategy process. Pivotal leadership themes such as vision, persuasion, decision-making and engagement do not merely follow from rational arguments, but are strongly influenced by social, psychological, and moral factors. A solid understanding of these aspects and the way they interact is therefore key to successful leadership.

In his speaking, writing and teaching work, Rob-Jan draws on these various disciplines in order to arrive at new and insightful perspectives on successful leadership.
