  • In addition to visualizing the “dream,” they must also be able to visualize:
  • each task that must be completed
  • the integration of those tasks to successfully complete the project.
  • HUSD Board Goals, 2004

To true leaders, vision defines the final goal, and action is the path that leads to vision.
