HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 2014 3 SBDC Be a visionary business leader By FINANCE NEW MEXICO Looking ahead, envisioning what the future may hold--your ability to identify trends and to plan for future possibilities can lead to great success for your busi- ness. A readiness to embrace tech- nology and change are vital in this business climate. Find out more in this week's article by the Finance New Mexico team. Planning in business isn't just a matter of deciding how to assign capital and resources to create a profitable venture. Equally essential is developing a distance vision.

Their focus is "macro" and "micro": They zoom in and out, from the specific to the general and back again, absorbing information about their own company and the larger environment -- the indus- try and the economy in which the company operates. This autofocus helps the vi- sionary leader identify trends that are likely to translate into Oppor- tunities and to act with intention to pursue them. Forming a Picture Some visionary leaders are born, but most are made. They learn from the mistakes and suc- cesses of other business leaders. The visionary process be- gins with the entrepreneur devel- oping a mental picture -- a holo- gram -- of her company several years in the future. She imagines how technological innovations might affect the business in posi- tive and negative ways and what tomorrow's target market will look and act like. Firmly planted in the present, she imagines her company's path from now to several years from now with an eye to beating com- petitors to that distant place. She thinks in tangible terms -- of rev- enue, market share and other measurables -- and she thinks big. If the company isn't where it needs to be to reach its destina- tion, the missing steps will be obvious as she works her way back from point B to point A. She exercises discipline to keep everyone on track toward the organizational objective. As a visionary leader, she has the dis- cipline and the Action Plan Getting from vision to achievement requires action -- of the concerted, deliberate and co- ordinated kind. Choreographing these steps is the task of the visionary leader, who provides direction and mo- tivation to his team of talent. He's an enabler in the best sense -- the creator and cultivator of an environment where transcendent thinking is rewarded and progress is celebrated. He is clear about what he wants from team members and leaders and keeps them stimu- lated with feedback and progress reports that help them see the macro picture that drives all com- pany activities. A truly visionary leader has humility; he's the first to take responsibility when a milestone isn't reached, seeing it as an opportunity to rededicate himself to becoming a better leader.

But a visionary leader isn't content with the sta- tus quo. She is always looking for ways to improve products, win customers, streamline production and expand market share. Once the company has a solid foundation and brand rec- ognition, she'll consider extend- ing a product line or tying the brand to complementary prod- ucts -- the way Nike did when it added apparel, sports equipment and accessories to its core prod- uct, athletic shoes. The point of visionary lead- ership is evolution -- with inten- tion. Finance New Mexico is a public service project to connect you to resources and knowledge that can help your business grow.
