Mitigating expectations in vision

Yesterday, I shared an observation about a leader answering a question and not hearing the major concern that was implied in the question.  This was likely because the leader saw a vision and did not want to lose focus.

Leaders sometimes see a vision that the rest of the organization may not yet see.  Being aware of this provides opportunity to mitigate issues that arise from different expectations.  Enlist advocates of the vision to help the organization move forward. Encourage these advocates to listen to feedback from the organization and work to provide guidance.
