Seven Ways Companies Can Realign Culture And Vision
Today’s leaders know that culture and vision are what enable a diverse team to work together toward common goals. This means leaders must take steps to shape the culture and enforce the vision in a cohesive way — and sometimes get rid of past structures that no longer serve the business.
But where do you start? The first step is to recognize when the two are not in alignment.Next , begin taking small steps in the direction that best supports the business’s vision. If you’re diligent about where you focus your attention and the ways you communicate, your team will follow suit.
To learn more about how leaders can realign culture and vision, we asked members of Forbes Coaches Council to share their opinions. Here’s what they said:
Know Your Vision, Know Your People And Be Adaptable
Use your vision and values as a compass for all decisions in order to stay in alignment to where you are going. Make sure you have the right people on your team. Listen to and know your people as they are mission critical to your success. Stay flexible on the journey while remaining true to your values. Remember that your culture will change as your organization evolves. – Jen Kelchner
