28 Oct Building a High Performance Organisation? Answer WHY First
You want your company to be known as “High Performance Organisation”. You know that company culture and leadership matter. You also know that robust performance management and employee buy-in are important, but where exactly do you start if you want your business to get all those pieces to fit together?
Leaders in business do not just stumble across high performance. They plan for it. They implement a strategy. They know why they do what they do and why it matters.
If you construct a strategy around this and you will begin to build a high performance business.
Shape Your Strategy around WHY
Before you think about how you are going to turn your organisation into one which outperforms its peers and gets results. You need to think about why you do what you do in the first place to paraphrase Simon Sinek. What drives you? What is your purpose? Why do you exist? Who do you serve? The love of the work? The wish to make positive changes? The excitement of creating a new service, product or approach? What are your values? How do we want to interact with one another and our customers?
What is your vision of the future?
Strategies do work. They work when you believe in them when you own them and drive them forward. Belief is the key to succeeding. If you show belief, empower and grow your people your business will thrive. Once you are clear on why you exist, what your values are and what your vision of the future is, you can shape your strategic plan around these.
High Performance Organisations know why they exist and what their fundamental purpose is. They have leaders with vision who use that enthusiasm to bring others with them, to make strategies work.
