This weekend I visited my son, Cory, in Washington, D.C. We biked to Mount Vernon and walked George Washington’s land.
When visiting the farming area, there was a sign describing George Washington first and foremost as a farming visionary.
This made me think about the importance of a lifelong learning program having a visionary in a leadership position.
Others can manage, but only a visionary leader can lead.
Over the next five years, it will be more important than ever for lifelong learning programs to have a vision, thus a leader who can identify new product areas, market segments, and delivery methods.
