The Power of Vision Driven Leadership | MICHAEL HYATT

Order of Man: Protect | Provide | Preside
Episode artwork
Read more

When most of us think about leadership, we think about inspiring, motivating, and influencing others. But rarely do we think deeply about our vision for a business, organization, or family. Ironic considering vision is the foundation of inspiration, motivation, and influence.

Today, I am privileged to be joined by a man who has been a tremendous leader to me on my path to build and lead the Order of Man movement. We cover so much in this conversion including the importance of a “vision grid,” how to effectively respond to resistance, four characteristics of great leadership, the difference between your “circle of concern” and your “circle of influence,” and the power of vision-driven leadership.


  • The science of different things
  • The power of simplicity
  • Distilling information
  • Where all change begins
  • Casting vision
  • Hacking your belief system
  • Delusional vs. believable
  • The scope of possibilities
  • Vision vs. strategy
  • Adjusting your vision
  • Fear of missing out
  • Diagnosing your life 36:40
  • Finding inspiration
  • Being able to sell it
  • An inspirational-deficit world
  • Think of the end from the beginning


My guest today is Michael Hyatt. He is an author, podcaster, speaker, and former chairman of Thomas Nelson publishing. I came across Michael’s work years ago as I was launching the Order of Man podcast and for the last 5 years, I’ve been following his advice and implementing his strategies for growing and leading a movement, building effective organizational strategies, and taking charge of my business and personal life. So, when his team reached out requesting to have Michael on our podcast, I jumped at the opportunity to have a conversation with a man who has been extremely influential in my life. He is a New York Times Bestselling author and today, he is here to talk with us about his new book, The Vision Driven Leader.


This month (April 2020) in the Iron Council, we’re discussing and implementing strategies from our monthly conversation, A Life Examined. In the midst of all this Coronavirus stuff, it’s likely that you have a bit more time on your hands than normal and, rather than waste this valuable time, you ought to consider using it as an opportunity to learn and grow. And, that’s exactly where the Iron Council comes in. When you band with us, you’ll have access to our monthly assignments, challenges, accountability systems and tools, and brotherhood all designed to help you make the most of every day. And, this is a great time to contemplate the purpose of your life and formulate a plan for becoming the man you have a desire to become. Join us at
