Vision or words?

Dear Leader,
Words like vision and mission have become so commonplace in leadership. It's so much more important to understand a leader or company's story. You see, if I listen to your stories, I will be able to tell you what your vision, mission and values are.
So, think about it, do you have a story, or do you have mere words.
Stories reside in the hearts of people, words reside on posters and banners.
Look at your people and ask yourself: Am I allowing them to be the characters they want to be, or can be, or are they mere characters in the company's plot?
Then listen to their stories!
Here's to your ears!
A character.
