Leaders are often the ones who create the vision, or the big picture of where an organization or team is going to go. The breakdown of the strategic elements into tactical actions with goals and milestones, requests and promises, conversations and energy is called execution. The outcome is (ideally) whatever the intended result the leader had in mind. Truly, however, the big picture is made up of many little pictures, each their own complete vision that can be broken down into tactical, executable chunks. Kinda like this artwork by Robert Silvers.
Take his photomosaic of Van Gogh’s Starry, Starry Night for example. Or the Birth of Venus. Or the David.
It is a big picture made up of tiny pictures. I think my favorite is Irises. If you click on any of them, you’ll see the tiny pictures that make up the larger image. Cool!
Kinda like the complex projects we do at work, eh? Check out more of these cool photomosaics…he’s done some real classics!
