This is an easy-to-read book in the trademark Ken Blanchard style that offers simple truths and profound wisdom. Jesse Stoner teams up with Ken Blanchard to take the mystery out of creating a clear, compelling vision for your organization and for yourself. They show where vision comes from, how it unleashes great power and energy, and how it provides ongoing focus and direction. They tell how to create the three key elements of an enduring vision: significant purpose, clear values, and a picture of the future. And they describe how to engage people in shaping meaningful visions and putting those visions to work in their organizations and their lives.

I can assure you that “Full Steam Ahead” is a book that I strongly believe is a book that everyone - with careers in business or not, in education or not, in any field - will find fulfilling. Do yourself a huge favor and read this book!!! I’ll be adapting, translating, and writing / presenting my thoughts in this area for a long time ...
The greatest lesson this book taught me is to expect obstacles, but focus my heart and mind on the clear vision, not the obstacles. Then I’ll be able to tack around them. I believe God puts obstacles in my life for a purpose. One purpose is the joy of discovery – like finding out why some things work and some things don’t!
Thank you, Ken & Jesse! Your book brought the vision concept into three dimensions for me!
