~ Walt Disney
One of your roles as the head of your company is to provide a vision for it.
Your vision ideally gives employees focus and helps them make the best decisions on their own, since it’s easy to determine which decision is in the best interest of the company.
While having a vision is important, you must also share it with your team. When you can bring that vision alive, you will see a real and lasting performance difference. When your employees align themselves with your company’s goals, they are free to invent, to improvise, to innovate and to inspire each other. They are free to do great work!
To give you an example, Microsoft’s initial vision was: A computer on every desk and in every home. Having every employee make decisions to try to achieve this goal has made the company a great success.
