Being a successful leader means that you should know the importance of sharing a vision for your team. It means you have something to thrive to, something to inspire to, and when confidently communicated to the team it energizes everyone to accomplish big things.
Here are a couple of ways to help you formulate your team with a shared vision, that will get them on board and get real world results.
- Make sure they understand your vision
The first step in creating a solid shared vision is to be clear about what you hope to achieve. A clear vision will also help determine the individuals objectives and to collaborate with others, as they will know that they’re all working towards the same goal. And of course, it helps when people have similar interests, there is a sense of real commitment.
- Don’t think small, dream BIG
No one wants to work towards something that isn’t inspiring or challenging. For people to be truly inspired, the vision needs to be big. Dreaming big also means that they are determined and motivated to achieve those obstacles.
- Set Strategic Goals
Once you have settled on a shared vision, the next step is to set strategic goals. With every objective that your team accomplishes, they will feel that they have achieved a win or milestone on the way to the bigger goal. This will also help them to stay motivated as they will gain greater confidence and self-efficacy that they can indeed pull off the vision. Remember that goals should be both measurable and specific which means you’ll have no doubt that they will achieve them.
Who said being a leader was easy? It’s challenging but satisfying. Your task is to motivate people to collaborate to get things done. Taking the time to develop a shared vision will play a vital role in getting your team working in the same direction so they can focus on the goals and work together to accomplish them.
