One Vision different positions
One Vision, Different Positions! Know your role or cause division!
My husband is the leader in our home, in our relationship, and business ventures. He is the visionary leader. This structure is very important and is the key to our success in our marriage, in our businesses and managing our home to avoid depression, confusion and uncertainty. We all have a role to play and a position to lead but ultimately it must be only ONE vision fueling the mission. I too contribute to new ideas and give feedback as my husband and I brainstorm. Our roles are clear and I specifically know when and how I contribute to the vision that my husband sets forth through communication. The command structure of a company is to only have one Commander in Chief, in our case, my husband takes that position.
A visionary leader
A visionary leader is inspiring in vision, and helps others to see how they can contribute to this vision; allowing the leader and followers to move together towards a shared view of the future. See, by definition, a visionary leader is not about self gain. The leader is all about moving forward together in consideration of all parties involved.
Let’s be clear, this concept of having “One Vision Different Positions” is not applicable to the husband that does not value the input of his wife. Bill Gates, Barack Obama and Will Smith are prime examples of successful men that admit to feedback and involvement from their wife as having a direct correlation to their level of success. A man with vision understands the value of his wife. They know that their wife is the helpmate and appreciates her role. A man with vision admits to not knowing it all and finds strength, in his wife, in areas he lacks. A true leader understands that there are benefits by way of valuing the opinion of his main confidante; his wife.
“Di”vision = “Di”vorce
Having more than one Vision in a home can lead to “Di-VISION”. “DI,” meaning two. And having two different visions in a home will lead to Divorce. Not being on the same page in your marriage and the direction it’s headed is having two different visions. Not being able to agree on the culture of your home or how you treat each other is having two different visions. The “tug a war” of power between the two of you is having two different visions. The goal is to build your relationship on solid grounds with only ONE VISION. Accepting that the visionary leader is the ultimate decision maker.
