Visionary leadership and the tribe

Modular Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this module, the student will be able to satisfy the following outcomes:

•Case ◦Distinguish between visionary leaders, operators, and processors.

•SLP ◦Apply the visionary leadership style to tribal leadership.

•Discussion ◦Compare visionary leadership with transformational leadership.

◦Synthesize leadership traits, skills, and styles to create the optimal leader for maximizing an organization’s tribal leadership stage.

Module Overview

This is the fourth and final module for this course. Now that the study of theory and its application to tribal leadership is wrapping up, we will keep our focus on transformational leadership (from Module 3), and we will compare it to visionary leadership (as well as some of its alternatives). This will help us to understand the differences between the two approaches and ultimately prepare us for a full application of visionary leadership to tribal leadership.

Finally, using all the theories and characteristics we have been studying, we will move toward full synthesis of the course concepts by constructing the ideal leader for a specific situation or application.

Module 4 – Background

Visionary Leadership and The Tribe

Visionary Leadership

Visionary leaders plow through their days with a sharp focus on the future. They know exactly where they want to take their organizations and teams, and they often know exactly how they want to accomplish it. They often set themselves apart from all other types of leaders.

Visionary leadership looks to the future and focuses on doing whatever it takes to get there. This leadership style can go along with a number of other styles, including transformational leadership. However, it is important to point out that this is not always the case. For example, Steve Jobs is a classic visionary leader. He checked many of the boxes associated with visionary leadership, but was by no means a positive, transformational leader. Jobs was incredibly demanding, often overly negative, and at times so brash and abrasive that it made quality employees run for the exit.

Aside from all of that, Jobs was a visionary. He prided himself in knowing what customers wanted before they even became aware themselves. He was also rigid and often stuck in his ways.

Regardless of the unhealthy parts of Steve Jobs as a leader, there is no denying his unparalleled, world-changing successes in business.

In the context of visionary leadership, there are visionaries, processors, and operators. Before we move into final assignments for this course, let’s take a few moments to watch the three videos below as we prepare to critically evaluate and discuss this model, compare it with transformational leadership, and move toward high-level synthesis and creation as we construct the perfect leader.

Visionary Leadership and The Tribe: Making Your Own Connections

Now that we have explored visionary leadership, let’s apply that knowledge to The Tribe. This is your opportunity to make your own connections between two major concepts. Rather than providing you with an application of tribal leadership to trait theory, you will look for these links yourself within the SLP as well as the reflective discussion question for this module.
