Why is a vision so important and why have I called this visionflow touchstone?
Creating a powerful vision helps bring people together, it sets a future goal, provides motivation and helps create the company culture.
If your business focuses on building a great customer experience this will help set the company culture towards one of support towards this common objective.
Some businesses are though more like command and control with a reliance on a heavy managment hand. This will could stifle the people at the coal face who often have a much better understanding of what to do if they are allowed and encouraged.
Your leadership in creating a vision is vital, as is an open culture which naturally flows towards and drives people.
Your vision and the structures which you form have a huge impact on your people’s behaviour. Its the structures combined with your vusion which drive behaviour and supports people who are in their flow. Loving their work is the natural outcome.
For too long management has relied on targets as a motivator. Whilst some targets may work in the short term, over the long term they can get in the way and create silos within the organisation. Its these silos which end up with department fighting department.
In summary a vision;
Shows your business, your team, your people, your stakeholders where you are heading.
Your vision allow the focus to be on the end goal and stop micro management. Individuals and teams can then put everything into reaching your goal.
A great vision provides the platform for strategic planning and moves the whole business forward.
A visionflow touchstone is the lynchpin which helps move the culture towards people doing their work and loving what they do.
