Managing Your Vision

Managing Your Vision

Are your people aligned with your organisation’s direction and objectives? Do your people truly understand the reason your organisation exists? In the global economy, it has never been more important to make sure your people are all on the same page.


Plan of action

By crafting a clear mission and vision statement, you can communicate your intentions and motivate your people to realise an inspiring vision for the future direction of your organisation. Here are two quick exercises for your next meeting.

Exercise 1

Get everybody in the room to close their eyes. Now ask everyone to straighten their arm in the direction of West. When everyone is pointing, ask your people to open their eyes. Let them see for themselves arms pointing in every direction. Now let your people know the exact same result occurs when there is no common mission, vision and raison d’etre for an organisation – with everyone counter pulling in different directions.

Exercise 2 Warning – Be prepared for headaches and some responses you could not have imagined possible!

Ask your people the following 2 questions:

Q1 – What do you get paid to do? Usually the most diverse responses hail from the sales areas?

Q2 -What is our organisation’s value proposition and/or our reason to exist?

Now map the responses and check the congruence of the responses with your mission and vision. Ideally, they are congruent and if not, then you definitely need this program.
