“Culture” is a word we hear a lot of in our industry right now. That’s because companies that learn how to build great culture attract the industry’s best talent and achieve greater success. If you’re a leader who wants to see your organization grow to the next level, the solution isn’t just to sell more. To improve your business, invest in your culture!
The first step toward building a culture of excellence is to cast a clear vision and cascade it down to the rest of your associates. Do you have a clear direction for where you want to take your company and what you want to accomplish? Does this vision fire you up when you think about it? Does it get you out of bed in the morning with a clear mission to win?
This vision to win is a vital part of leading a successful team. Great sports teams have more than talented players. They have incredible coaches who lead them to victory. The best performers are typically on the best teams because the best teams win. Top producers want to be led by someone who has an incredible vision and plan to see it come true.
Leaders, take the time to ask yourself, “What is my vision for what I want this organization to achieve?” Once you know, share this vision with your team. Get excited about where you can go together!
