Have you articulated an inspiring vision so your people choose to volunteer their best?
Creating a vision means defining where your team is going and how they will get there. It’s not unusual for a leader, after a grand pronouncement, to sit back and assume their vision will happen. In truth, many bold strategies never reach liftoff because team members were either confused, uninspired, or had a “this too shall pass” attitude. Consider these best practices for creating and communicating a vision:
– Adapt your message to the culture.
– Craft a vision that is within reach.
– Articulate and repeat the vision at every appropriate opportunity.
– Create ambassadors.
No leader has ever over-communicated an inspiring vision. Worthy aspirational projects and initiatives typically fail because leadership wrongly thought they had been sufficiently translated throughout the team or organization. Or in some cases, they lost interest themselves.
