Objective

Demystifying Visionary leadership and Team Synergy

Steve Jobs was actually quoting Wayne Gretzky, an Ice Hockey player and Coach. Wayne’s original quote went something like this : “A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be”.

But how do you figure out where the puck will be, particularly in a high speed sport like Ice Hockey, or in a fast changing world of business and economics?

We know there is some mystery and magic to visionary leadership and team synergy. But how does this magic or miracle actually happen?
