From small talk to sincere alignment creation

Alignment Creation

From business babble to committed alignment

Failure to communicate and misalignment lead to expensive losses for companies. Working on the wrong things costs money, time, and energy. When leaders do speak with their co-workers about their vision, this however doesn’t necessarily mean that all business levels and players are clear about the organization’s purpose and are able to perform in accordance with it.

Think about your own enterprise. Is your workplace a vibrant, happy place, with motivated people, or do your co-workers look more like zombies? Does your board of directors take ages to come to decisions? Do new projects stall, to die a sluggish death? Do you receive a lot of complaints, from both your customers and your employees? These are all strong indications that your vision alignment is going nowhere.

To make progress and reach goals, business leaders need to ground their vision in reality, in particular in relationship to others. As long as your ideas aren’t supported by your management team, employees and suppliers, your brainchild will remain nothing but a bunch of thoughts. To make your ideas and goals ‘owned’ by your entire workforce you need to enable a back-and-forth debate. Alignment is a shared responsibility between leaders and followers in a company.
