Sharing a vision is vital to how your team performs, much like the loyalty that comes from recognition for a job well done. There is an amazing power that comes into a team that understands why they are doing what they’re doing and why it matters to you, to them, and to your organization. When people love their job it’s because they have vision and know that they are contributing to that vision. You can pay someone a million dollars to work a dead-end job and they will still say, “I hate my job, but I do it for the pay check.”
When your team has vision, they are enabled to like, possibly even love their work, and also get paid to do it.
Again, this is a quick tip of leadership. It doesn’t take a lot for you to say, “Hey team, our vision is _______ so I really appreciate the effort I’ve seen you put in to make that happen through _______”.
Take every opportunity to pull the everyday ‘to-do’ back into the goals and vision that you have for your team and they have for themselves.
Again, this is basic, and back to the phrase…common sense is not common practice!!
Have a great weekend!
