This is the starting point for your team. We will help the sponsoring manager to prepare their Vision of success in the future and be ready to articulate it to the management team. The workshop content is about what a Vision and Mission really are and what the terms actually mean for your people. We don’t advocate fine words on a poster that no one reads as a Vision; it is a personal thing. The Mission is rather more tangible and sets out how in strategic terms the Vision will be achieved.
With a common understanding of what is meant by Vision and Mission, we then use the workshop to help each manager to distil their own Vision and Mission for their team that will contribute to achieving the sponsor’s Vision, and how they will share it with their team and gain their buy-in and support for achieving it.
The managers then have the task of discussing it with their teams and allowing them to shape the team’s Vision and Mission such that they are all committed to it. It then becomes the reference point for all the team’s activities until it is either achieved or revised.
