Is there a difference between a visionary and a leader in any given organization?
If you posed the question to a C-suite professional who’s led by a so-called “visionary leader,” they might say that a visionary and a leader are one and the same;
any individual can exhibit both qualities. While this is certainly true,
those gifted with both vision and discipline are rare, and they’re often well known for being controversial.
Recognizing both the differences and similarities between visionaries and leaders in the executive ranks can help you better understand the leadership dynamics at play in your own organization,
says a new report from Executives Unlimited.
