The only three things you need to change the world are vision, passion, and entrepreneurial action


Articulate Your Vision

People have unlimited capabilities. Keep in mind that people will do what they have to do for money, but they may unlock their true potential and give their best if your vision of the desired future inspires and excites them.



Vadim Kotelnikov Outstanding speaker quote fine-tune your speech

Set stretch targets that will keep your people inspired, focused, excited, energized, and proactive


Provide the Strategic Alignment

Establish weighted guiding principles, create a strategic to-do list, and set a chain of stretch goals or milestones leading towards the shared vision.



Vadim Kotelnikov inspirational speaker creative problem solving

If you create something unseen before,
prepare to address challenges unmet earlier


Lead by Example

Be an inspirational leader. Live your vision, demonstrate your commitment and be a role model. Be energized and energize others. Stay focused on your vision and the key strategic stretch goals despite all the day-to-day distractions.




Give Ownership

Practice empowering leadership or the Tao-style leadership that makes people feel that they achieve the stretch goals all by themselves. Share profits.  Design a transparent "Pay as You Grow" profit-sharing model that will link the profit to be released to your team to the progress made towards the shared vision.

Energize Employees





Example: JD Meier

JD Meier who worked as a top manager in Microsoft for 25+ years, says, "The 3 most important things Ive always needed for leading innovation have been 1) a great monitor to project shared visuals and information; 2) walls of large whiteboards for creating and sharing castles of the mind; 3) a suite of chairs that can easily be arranged as a U or circle as needed."
