10 Keys to Communicating Vision
Have you noticed when you know what you want to accomplish and have clarity, it…
- Has a pulling power
- Provides you with energy
- Allows you to say “no” to the trivial
- Focuses you on important tasks
Jack Welch, the late and great CEO of General Electric, once observed, “without question, communicating the vision has and continues to be, by far, the toughest job we face.”
I have found that teams need to be shown the teams vision with clarity, creativity, and consistency.
Here are 10 Keys to Communicating Vision:
- Clarity of what we accomplish in the next 12-24 months
- Connecting with past accomplishments and what our future holds
- Direction and purpose… “our why”
- Targets and specific goals
- Strong values to guide us
- Inspiring stories to make it “come to life”
- Energy and passion to fuel us daily
- Risk and innovation to disrupt our market, we will be the BEST
- Leadership that inspires us and models the way
- Strategy that states how we will build and measure our success
The next time you plan to communicate your vision, prepare and use this checklist. Vision can make our work “come to life.” It has a pulling power to turn ordinary days into extraordinary events.
Here’s to greater confidence, direction, and success!
