Be Like a Great Pair of Glasses

As a leader, you can be like a great pair of glasses.  You can help new and experienced people in your organization SEE how their specific work is linked to a greater shared mission. In other words, make sure each person understands how his or her role is linked back to an objective of the organization. Keep your organization’s mission in front of them.

   What is your organization’s mission?

   Is it shared openly and often?

   Consider three people who work at various levels of your organization. 

   How specifically do each of these individuals contribute to the overall success of your mission?

   Do these members see the connection between the work they do and the mission of your organization?

   How can you help them see this connection?  How can you show appreciation for their contribution?
