- Cast vision – Tell your people the direction you are taking them and why and why it will be a good thing
- Answer questions
- Guide them through issues
- Give them time to exert their influence with the next level of leaders (a.k.a. influencers) in the organization
- Make a general announcement (when the time is right) – give plenty of reassurance and encourage people to be part of a new vision.
