We’ve all heard that getting the right people on the bus is critical in leading an organization to the motherlode. The latest theory is, “getting the right people on the bus in the right seats!” Well I’d like to take this a step further and say, “Companies must not only get the right people on the bus in the right seats, they must also align the wheels of the bus by creating activities that every department follows towards the company’s vision!”
When we teach culture development, we start with vision… a clear unobscured vision of the direction, and targeted destination the organization intends to lead their people.
The vision step is actually the easiest step in building corporate culture, yet the step that we find many company leader struggle. With some strong coaching techniques developing a vision is easier than many think.
Vision is the difference between employees who “accept” the way things are and employees who are “ambitious” about changing status quo! So, start with your company vision, land the right people and place them in the correct seats then drive the bus up the path of prosperity to your vision!
