8 of 9

Step 7: Solicit input

This is where you let the cat out of the bag and get input from people you trust and respect. Whom should you show it to? Folks who have experience, insight, and expertise relevant to your vision. Inevitably, some of these advisers will shift away from talking about the vision into a discussion of the action steps that will have to be in a strategic plan. Just listen carefully, and take notes—some of those ideas might come in handy later.
