Welcome to The SHAPE of a Leader. I write this blog with the SHAPE leadership development program (for women pastors) I lead in mind, but it is for all who are interested in leadership, faith, and the intersection of the two.

A Distinction: Purpose vs. Vision

Here's a distinction to consider:
Purpose answers the question: Why do we exist?
Vision answers the question: Where are we going?

Has your organization answered both questions?  

One of my favorite quotes - a Japanese proverb - is "Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare."  But preceding vision AND action is purpose.
