Do you have a vision for your company? Have you shared that vision with the team you have assembled? A team without goals, objectives and an overall vision for the success of the company is a team and an organization which will go nowhere fast. As the leader of your company, you must not withhold your vision from the rest of the crew. Sharing your vision with everyone, including stakeholders, is the hallmark of fortune 500 companies.
Sharing Your Vision
Clear communication is the key to success. When you share your vision with all the players of your organization, you build trust, establish knowledge and direction as well as inspire and empower the entire company to reach toward greatness.
However, the lack of communication among leaders and employees will hinder and ultimately destroy the progress of any organization. Misunderstanding will increase. Confusing and lack of direction will grow. Productivity and quality will suffer greatly. As a result, customers will desert your business for your competitors.
Tools for Getting Your Vision Across
In today’s society, there is no excuse for withholding communication. In addition to face to face communication, other methods of getting your message across abound. Such technological tools as smartphones, tablets, websites, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and many others make it inexcusable to withhold sharing your vision with teams and stakeholders.
Inspiring Others to Share
Not only must you communicate the vision of the company, but you also should encourage regular employees, supervisors, managers, and stakeholders to share the vision of the company as well. The more the vision is shared among employees and departments, the more excitement and motivation will grow for the achievement of the vision.
Rising to the Top
Organizations that rise to the top in the marketplace are there because leaders have promoted the vision. As a result, the vision has spread throughout the company.
Every time a milestone is achieved, the leader celebrates this accomplishment and moves the company closer toward important goals and objectives.
