Shift for Visionaries

Visionaries see things that most other people either do not see as clearly or are not as motivated to act on. This extraordinary vision can include seeing more clearly into the future, seeing more deeply in the present, seeing the bigger picture, or any combination of these. Visionaries face a special set of issues, challenges and life situations. As a visionary matures s/he may make some of the following shifts. A coach can assist with this process.
