Ep. 130: Creating Vision Alignment
In this podcast episode, DecisionWise VP of Assessment and Sr. Consultant Dave Long, discusses the topic of vision alignment.
When employees feel disengaged from their job, it often has to do with the executive leadership failing to communicate the vision and goals of the organization. Worse yet, sometimes the executive team themselves don’t understand the mission or even agree on a direction!
Understanding the larger purpose of your organization helps you understand your role and the impact you make, which ultimately provides meaning to your everyday tasks. When different departments or teams have competing objectives, it helps to bring everybody on the same page. Managers who are able to tie what they’re doing as a team to the larger organization create a better sense of feeling aligned and “bought-in.”
Learn what problems to look for with vision alignment and how to fix them in this insightful conversation.
