The article focuses on the skills involved in building shared visions required in leadership. When people share a vision, it is stated that the vision becomes a mental reality that all co-creators can imagine to achieve. Encouraging personal vision in people is a skill, it is pointed out, because shared visions emerge from them and that people's capacity for caring is personal. Continual sharing and asking people if the vision is worthy of commitment is another skill noted.
