You should answer this question as an essay 3-5 pages in APA style, and it is for the leadership class.
Defining a vision is based largely on the expectations of your superiors within an organization, but there is always room to further define your vision within the scope of those expectations. For example, a department of technical writers may be perceived as necessary for document management and process control, but a mission statement that illustrates a best-in-class performance communicates significance – a statement that the group’s employees may not really understand. Often, employees who do not feel valued or do not believe their efforts matter have lower productivity and lower overall job satisfaction.
Establishing a carefully planned and documented personal vision defines goals for the group and creates personal ownership for every individual. Including your staff in a collaborative process cultivates buy-in and general acceptance. While not all employees will enthusiastically support the end result, you’ll have far greater success than if you attempt to impose your will and force others to adopt new guidelines.
1. Describe the steps you would take to create a vision statement for your work group or organization by using a collaborative process.
2. Complete Exercise 7.1 Personal Values-What Is Important to You?

Using the Professional Assignment guidelines detailed in this syllabus, answer the following questions:
● What, if any, correlation did you find between your organizational vision to your personal vision? Detail the connections you observed.
● Did the results of the exercise on personal values align with your personal vision? Compare and contrast the differences.
