Getting people to follow you to fulfill a vision takes strong leadership skills, good communication skills, enthusiasm, charisma and most of all trust. If people know they can trust you, then they will follow a path that is not yet clear to them. They will follow, trusting that the path is clear to you, or that you know how to find the way to the final goal. This requires that the leader model the way he or she desires his or her followers to act. The group will learn quickly if the leader is sincere or not. The actions of the Transformational Leader must be the same as the spoken beliefs. These actions will speak louder that any words ever will. So, the leader must lead the way be acting in ways that fulfill the spoken and or written vision.
