Tino Mantella, president and CEO of Turknett Leadership Group, explains why an organization’s vision should remain fluid.

“The leader has to be resilient, and they have to be willing to change because what I've seen happen a lot of times is people don't want to change. ‘That's the vision. It's always going to be the vision,’” shares Tino. “[An organization’s] mission might likely stay the same, but the vision that meets that mission is something that you should be flexible with and be able to move.”

So when an organization gets off track with their vision, it could be because the community's changed, the business has changed, and they need to revisit by listening to their stakeholders. The important thing is not just putting a stake in the ground and that stake never moves from the time you put it in the ground, particularly in this day and age when things change so fast and the companies that were the big companies, the enterprise companies 10 years ago, might be gone now.

And there are lots of stories about that, but it's really being able to have a fresh look, a vision, something that goes out, some people say now, 30 years. That seems a little bit long to me, but it's something that the leader has to be resilient, and they have to be willing to change because what I've seen happen a lot of times is people don't want to change. "That's the vision. It's always going to be the vision."

You know, the mission might likely stay the same, but the vision that meets that mission is something that you should be flexible with and be able to move. It's not an everyday thing, but once you put it out there, have the courage to change.
