I think you're misinterpreting. The agree/disagree statement was: "Senior leadership at Wikimedia have communicated a vision that motivates me" (7% agree) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2016-01-06/News_and_notes#WMF_staff_morale See also, this quote in glassdoor, quoted in the Signpost as well: "The Executive Director unveils a new strategy every three months or so." So, it's not that people wanted the vision solely from the ED/Management, it's that they wanted a not constantly changing one. This is getting off topic, however. The point is, a vision does not need to come from one person, which you agree with. A good vision comes from many people working together collaboratively. Then sticking with it to see it through. Consistency is needed in an ED.
