The Power of Shared Vision: How to Cultivate Staff Commitment and Accountability

It's here!

A Shared Vision is an aspirational description of what an organization or department can accomplish when it realizes its full potential. When commitment to a shared vision is strong it trumps personal, cultural and work style differences. Employees find ways to cooperate with one another, adhere to reasonable standards of conduct, and take responsibility for their behavior.

  • Develop goals that unite people around a common cause
  • Understand the reasons why some employees cannot or will not meet reasonable performance expectations
  • Create a retribution-free communication environment and utilize employees as internal consultants in decision-making processes
