When Moses caught his vision of a promised land and then aligned the masses to join him, he had to lead them across the desert. Metaphorically, this story illustrates the four stages of the Transformational Map. The promised land is the vision, the followers of Moses aligned with his vision, the desert refers to the learning agenda required to achieve their vision, and the arrival at the promised land is the final stage when we embed the vision into the culture.
Our worldview, skill sets, and life experiences will provide invaluable guidance and support, but the vision will demand personal learning from us. You have to ensure that those who are helping to achieve the vision are able to learn whatever is necessary to do so.
● What do you personally need to learn in order to realize your new vision?
● Specifically, what skills, information, and new habits must you learn in order to achieve your vision?
● In order for others to share your vision, what must they know? Interview others, and then craft a learning agenda for achieving your vision in the world.
