Helping to get your employees excited about your company mission can directly impact your future bottom line. In my 12 years as M.O.V.E. the MissionTM Mentor working with CEOs, NGOs and non-profits, I have found that engaging your employees is paramount to furthering your mission.
As leadership within your company, have you often wondered (or lost sleep at night) why your employees aren’t as passionate about your company’s mission as you are?
It may be a familiar feeling where you come into work full of anticipation about the day’s possibilities. You have a clear vision of where you want to take the company, knowing all the potential. And you may have spent a good part of your career getting to this very moment.
Now that you have finally reached this point, you look around and if you’re lucky, your staff appears to be happy and attentive. Yet you can tell their excitement level is markedly ‘dialed down’ from yours.
So you’re clear on the problem. Your people simply don’t feel as connected and driven by your company’s mission as you do.
The question is what would it feel like if your employees never fully realize the potential to achieve what you have worked toward and envisioned for so long?
I’ve had conversations with CEO’s and executive management over the years about this exact problem. Some leaders feel they’ve done everything possible to inspire company-wide enthusiasm around their mission, yet yielded no different results.
Here’s the key. If you want to have everyone around you be just as excited about your mission as you are, it starts with alignment. Of course there’s more to it. In fact, I have an entire training program that’s part of my M.O.V.E. the MissionTM Model.
In summary, it is absolutely possible to get your employees more engaged and excited about your company’s mission. If you are tired of racking your brain and doing countless mission and vision exercises, then you can benefit from my Mission and ROI Alignment training that has helped other visionary leaders.
