 Vision Web... "Lo mejor que he visto en el Mundo"  Muy de vez en cuando, conocemos gente que inmediatamente tiene un impacto en nuestras vidas. Yo fui muy afortunado al conocer a José Refugio López. Él me envió un mensaje desde México diciendo que había desarrollado un juego de simulación que reforzaba fuertemente todas las cosas que he dicho acerca del Poder de una Visión.

Concertamos una cita y él junto con un amigo de Miami, trajeron el “Vision Web for Leaders and Teams” a un hotel de Disney World. Una vez ahí me llevaron a través del proceso.

Me impresionó, fue muy sencillo y convincente ya que demuestra absolutamente por medio de acciones físicas, la importancia de tener una Visión Clara que cada miembro de un equipo comparte   

Como resultado, he invitado a colegas y colaboradores para llevar este gran ejercicio de simulación al resto del mundo. Yo pienso que usted encontrará ell mejor ejercicio inicial, para conseguir que su gente entienda la importancia de tener una Visión Compartida. No puedo esperar a ver qué tan rápido esto se convierta en la herramienta preferida. ¡Gracias José, por tu gran trabajo!

 It goes without question that the Vision Web is one of the most successful simulations that I have ever utilized as a trainer to convey the concept and power that a “Shared Vision” can have for an organization. Additionally, the simulation provides insights to teamwork, leadership roles, communication, common work-group language, systems, and the notion that it’s ‘fun’ when the organization is all functioning together.

  I have indeed used the “Vision Web for Leaders & Teams” numerous times in the U.S., Australia and Asia with first-line and mid-level law enforcement executives from Federal, State and Local establishments, both uniform and non-uniform, sworn and non-sworn. I have found it to be very effective in demonstrating the importance of establishing vision in a team and creating a learning and encouraging environment. It also has verified the importance of empowerment to time management and the difference between autocratic leadership style and visionary leadership style. I have used this exercise with groups of 50 and as small as 8.  You did a wonderful job in creating this tool to help demonstrate the importance of vision in team building, thanks for your efforts

 The Vision Web tool quickly and effectively demonstrate the importance of bringing everyone in on the vision of an organization or corporation.  In just a couple of hours the lessons learned during this fun and dynamic exercise give participants insights and tools that they can take home to create real change.  And because this change begins by showcasing for leaders the importance of a universal understanding of the organization’s vision, the efforts produce ongoing results.  It’s an enduring lesson for both leaders and all those that are charged with realizing a vision.

At a national ODN conference in San Diego, a workshop called Vision Web caught my attention. In the simulation, participants use a web of ropes to stack wood cylinders to demonstrate the importance of a shared vision. This sounded novel and I like having new tools to use in our practice, especially ones that can have a big impact in a short period of time.

To peak my interest even more, the workshop description quoted Joel Barker, the well known futurist and author of Paradigm Shift. Barker considers Vision Web one of the most powerful simulation games for teaching people how important it is to have a shared vision of the future.

Twelve of us attended the Vision Web workshop facilitated by developer, Jose Lopez. Jose ran us through the “ropes” simulation. It was different, fast paced, and insightful. All of us were impressed and felt that Vision Web could be very useful for team building workshops and strategic planning retreats.
