How do you ignite within yourself and others a passion to actively engage? You know what it looks like and feels like when you are passionate about something, right? You simply can’t stop talking about it. Your eyes light up with a sparkle and your heart jumps whenever you hear someone talking about it. You wake up in the morning and can’t wait to start working on it; or you can’t stop thinking about it and you want to learn more about it.
An effective Vision inspires others with Purpose and Passion. Without a clear statement of Vision, a business is like a society with no culture, or a team with no direction to move forward. A Vision along with clearly defined Core Values helps to put your ideal business, brand identity, and business ethics into words to then serve as a framework and guide for self and others. With such a powerful resource in hand, it is possible to inspire yourself and existing team members, in addition to being a resource to use when implementing a practical search for future employees who exhibit the traits needed to ensure business credibility, continuity, consistency, and creative growth.
The Vision statement must clearly spell out the following:
- Who are we?
- What business are we in?
- Who are our clients and customers?
- What makes us different from our competitors?
Your Vision should advance your Mission and help define what it is you value, as well as inform what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior. It should form the central theme or philosophy regarding customer service, and it becomes a game plan for executing every detail of your business from a specific agreed-upon and a shared premise.
Once a business’ Core Values are articulated, they permeate and underlie each and every decision that is made. Whether you are trying to decide which products or services to add or enhance, or whether you are determining what kinds of employee benefits you wish to offer, your business Vision and Core Values will influence everything you say and do going forward.
Your personal Passion to live into your Vision and Core Values will create Purpose and Meaning for others to align and engage with eagerness and effectiveness. Your shared Vision and Core Values with Passion and Purpose become the backbone of your business and the glue that keeps teams working cooperatively and successfully through any challenge and in any environment. Teamwork fueled by the power of your Vision, in alignment with Core Values will ignite Passion with Purpose and clearly make your company a wonderful, rewarding place to work and learn, making growth and profitability possible in any market cycle. So, Welcome 2021. Let’s go…Let’s grow with clarity in Vision, Value, Passion and Purpose!
