We need vision like never before. Too bad nobody believes in it.
The critical problems that people are facing right now all have two things in common: they are big and they are confusing. There has never been a moment when humanity needed vision more, but there may also have never been a time when casting vision was more difficult. Just as our problems have converged in complexity and urgency, we've lost much of our faith in the leaders of our businesses, churches, organizations, and communities.
Consider the following statistics:
- 82% of us say we can't trust our business leaders to be honest.
- We trust political leaders 20% less than a few years ago, and their trust in us has fallen by the same amount.
- More than six out of ten people feel church leaders don't make a significant impact on the world.
